I just got the Nvidia branded ("reference" I guess?) GTX 970 a couple days ago for a good deal. I noticed that in games that aren't very GPU intensive the card sounds fine. But in games that are demanding the card is making an odd noise. It's not a "bad" sounding noise. It's just not really a normal one. Temps are usually around 75-80 C when this happens.

The sound is EXACTLY this sound, except more quiet. Can't hear it when my speakers are on:

Card needs more juice. Increase voltage.
>>
>>52529638
Out of the box? How can I do this?
>>
Where do you even buy reference cards? I haven't seen any in any online store I know
>>
>>52529705
The 970 reference an exclusive to best buy for whatever odd reason. I decided against their EVGA card because apparently its not their "real" SSC series card. Just their normal cooler one slightly overclocked.
>>
Clean it's fan.
>>
>>52529755
Purchased the card just two days ago

Limit FPS to 59 with RTSS.
>>
>>52529805
RTSS?
>>
>>52529638
It's called coil whine OP. A lot of cards do this under load. It's not something you should worry about unless you find it annoying.
>>
>>52529960
Rivatuner Statistics server. It comes bundled with MSI Afterburner.
>>
>>52530073
Would another one do the same thing? Should I exchange for a new one?
>>
>>52530073
Cards shouldn't be producing coilwhine below 150fps.
>>
>>52530127
Possibly, but maybe not. You could try to exchange it for a new one, i believe coil wine is a valid reason to RMA, best buy should take it back, but there's guarantee a new one won't also whine.

>>52530147
My card whines pretty much whenever it's under load, regardless of fps. Ive had it for three years now with no issues. I pretty much always have headphones on when im playing games though, so i don't really care.
>>
>>52530147
Unless you have vsync on.
>>
>>52530293
There's no* guarantee
>>
I have been looking for help with my card, I updated its drivers and everything was working well but then it suddenly blue screened on me saying Kernal_Security_Check_Failure so I checked and I uninstalled it and reinstalled my gpu. its an R9 390 and the problem was with 16.1 hot fix should I just wait for a new update and hope it does not happen again?
>>
>>52530127
See if you can get a refund, if not, just live with the noise
>>
Its coil whine. Had it with my evga 970
They swapped it right away
>>
tfw can't hear very well so my 970 could sound like a plane taking off and i would never know it

Was windows doing something in the background?
>>
>>52531026
nope it happened after playing xcom for 2 hours
>>
>>52530559
GOOD FOR YOU, ANON.
>>
>>52531044
Does it happen in other games?
>>
>>52531161
it happened twice total before checking my drive and reinstalling an older version, the older version works fine just going to be annoying if I can never update
>>
>>52531220
ok so it is the driver,wait for a fix anon.btw what OS?
>>
>>52531272
I hope they fix it, I am stuck on windows 10 since it was the cheapest os I could get and I was to afraid to go for linux on my first pc build

Can you turn that ugly green glow off?
pls I need to know. It's important.
>>
>>52530147
The 970 is notorious for its coil whine. Right behind the 3.5 shit in notoriety. I had a Gigabyte G1 970 and that shit whined like crazy before I got a refund.
>>
>>52532193
Yes you can with nvidia experience or whatever their optimization software is called. You can even turn the brightness way down if you still want a hint of the lettering.
>>
>>52532270
Thank you, anon.
>>
>>52532320
No problem. I was thinking about opening up my two cards and cutting the line that supplied power to the leds before I figured it out. I hate it too.
>>
>>52529638
it will probably disappear after a while (days, weeks)
