I know people said Screaming Caps / Winning Caps is alright but my Question is what makes it have that noise?

Thanks. I guess it's alright that it makes a winning screaming noise. I only get it when I load in ati tool and play a game

I had it with my first 8800 GTX, RMA'd it and the second didn't make a sound. Freaked me out the first time I heard it lol

My GTX 285 only started doing it after I OC'd it a bit, still does it at stock clocks now. Isn't too bad, barely noticeable in games but it's kept me from folding when I'm around the PC.

It's funny, some of both my Nvidia and ATI cards have screaming caps; I've noticed the Nvidia cards scream louder, but the ATI cards have a more annoying scream.

Either "singing" inductor coils or capacitors venting hydrogen gas. If its an inductor coil, it will probably not ever go away, singing caps should be quiet in a few months.

I actually find it funny. When I run ati tool Cube I hear it and it sounds funny because the caps make different sounds when the cube rotates


Let me make a video for you guys.

IT gets really annoying when a game video goes on. I was playing crysis for the first time & you get that intro video when you start a game.

I was like DAMN time to turn up the music here
