MSI 2070 Armor Coil Whine
« on: 09-February-19, 10:12:10 »

I've recently built a new PC with a MSI 2070 armor as my GPU- During games and character selection screens (in WoW and Divinity 2), I have noticed a pretty high sounding coil whine, especially when FPS is >100. For example, if i framelock my FPS to around 60 in these games, the sound goes completely away. I have tried enabling V-Sync in both games, but still does not have any effect on sound unless I lock my frames to 60 fps. This is a problem for me, due to the fact I have a 144hz monitor and would prefer to be able to get high frames w/o such an annoying sound. I do have "adaptive fresh" on in the nvidia panel. Can anyone help me with these, any other suggestions or should I consider returning card? *The sound does increase bit by bit when raising the fps frame cap*

I have coil whine from my MSI RTX 2070, PSU replacement didnt fix it, coil whine is only during heavy load, the worst whine is when I have extremely high fps like in games menus.
