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:
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.
Rivatuner Statistics server. It comes bundled with MSI Afterburner.
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.
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.
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?
Was windows doing something in the background?
Can you turn that ugly green glow off?
pls I need to know. It's important.
