Hey,

I bought a Gigabyte GTX 570 OC and for some reason when i play games it makes my power supply (thermaltake TR-600w) whine at me umm not im sure if its due to unstable current or what but my old 570 didnt cause coil whine of any sort but this one for some reason does and my previous was also a Gigabyte GTX 570 non oc though..

Heres my setup

Cpu: i5 2500K @ 4.5Ghz (yes i have tried running default clock speeds didnt do anything)
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 570 OC
Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 6
Ram: patriot 8gb @ 1333mhz
Power Supply: Thermaltake TR 600w

Please if any of you guys can help me find a solution that would be great, i red somewere that putting a heap of hot glue (from a glue gun etc) helps mask it but idk if it would work, if its a definite yes ill try it but idk i still think its got something to do with the gpu itself.

Things ive tried.

. making the gpu run at reference clock speeds and voltages = nothing
. constant voltage = nothing
. tried turning the c states off = nothing
. power saving switched on = nothing
. power saving on motherboard = nothing

Any other ideas, or any power supply that doesnt coil whine out there for around 600-700w

Answer ASAP

Kind Regards

Are you sure its the power supply and not the card?

Usually this happens to video card but sometimes it happens to PSU too. Check again if it is your card or PSU.
When do you hear this whining sound? It must be the capacitor has been weak.

Only when gaming, i sold off the card and bought a 660 ti and it performs great no whine at all

GTX660Ti is best in performance/price ... sorry for very late reply

kind of busy lately.
So your ex-card was bad, the caps was weak/broken I suppose.
