My X570 Aorus Pro WiFi (F11 BIOS) with a Ryzen 9 3950X has the most insane coil whine I've ever heard in any piece of electronics. I've tried two different power supplies. The whine is too loud for my tastes even in the case (Fractal Design Define R6) all closed up. I've only had it 6 days (bought at Microcenter last Saturday). I'm thinking to take it back and exchange it for another.
I made a high quality recording of it
(M4A/AAC - 3.16MB) with my Rode NT1 + Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Gen) into a laptop running on battery power of the Ryzen 9 system in the case with the side open (see attached picture). I did no post processing to the recording other than compress it to AAC and trim a little off the start and end of the recording. No EQ, no compressor, no level adjustments, etc. You'll hear my clicking the mouse throughout the recording to start and stop different loads on the processor.
Here's the relevant time stamps if you just want to sample bits of the coil whine. No OC'ing going on.
0:01 turn on PC
0:02-0:07 chipset fan spins up and down
up to ~0:32 PC booting
0:32-0:37 enter password & log in
1:00 start Prime95 stress test #2
1:49 start x265 FHD Benchmark
(PBO off up to this point)
2:56 start x265 FHD Benchmark with PBO turned on
3:55 start Prime95 stress test #1? with PBO turned on
4:35 start Prime95 stress test #2? with PBO turned on
5:06-5:52 scrolling up and down in AMD Ryzen Master application with mouse scroll wheel (no programs are running loading the CPU)
5:54 Press PC power button to turn it off
5:59 PC switches off
Is my board an outlier or are they all just like this?
