  1. I just noticed this when I started playing Fifa 16 this evening. On other games the coil whine usually happens when I am in-game but not in the loading screen, some games it's throughout but with Fifa 16 it's when I ALT TAB and minimize the window the coil whine kicks in and it is much louder than I have heard before. The fans also start to ramp up by themselves, they are silent whilst playing. Is this a game problem or something wrong with my GPU? My GPU is an Asus GTX 970 Strix. Thanks in advance.
  2. You guys don't get BBC? Aww, it is quite a good episode

    SE215 vs. M50x

    When I got my pair of SE 215s there were too big for my ears (fairly average sized) and the cable was waaaay to stiff.
  4. What about this? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hPspwP
  5. Hello, I turned off v-sync whilst playing a couple of games just to see what frame rate would be achieved and I noticed that my GPU makes a high pitched noise but this only happens whilst playing a game as when pauses occur the noise stops immediately and resumes just as quick when the game starts again. I wanted to see if it was the fans so I went into MSI Afterburner and played around with the fan speed testing a bunch of levels to see if it was a specific percentage that caused the noise but nothing. The sound that is made is never heard when doing this. I dont understand what it is because surely putting the fan speed at 35% in game would produce the same sound as 35% on the desktop but there is a high pitched sound. I turned on v-sync on CS-GO and the sound does quieten down to the point that it is no longer noticeable but I would still want to find out what is causing it. I am 100% sure that it isn't coil whine because as I said, spinning the fans up on the desktop doesn't produce this noise. To add to this, when using ALT+TAB the noise also immediately stops and doesn't come back until I go back into game. It could be a game issue as I don't seem to get this with GTA 5 or games that are also as demanding. Thanks in advance.
  6. Don't get an FX4300 and the outdated motherboard. What is your budget?
  7. Pretty sure it won't. Try some low profile ram if you still want that CPU cooler.
  8. Oh ok. In that case swap out the WD Black for a Blue (virtually no difference anymore) and you should be golden.
  9. I'd say save the money and buy a G27, it is one awesome wheel and you can mod the gear stick to make it sequential. With the money saved you can treat him
  10. How about something like this? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jLK7jX
  11. Buy another SATA cable for a cheap price, you can find them pretty much anywhere. Install the OS on the SSD, wait for the cable to arrive then fill up your HDD.
  12. Right click the task bar, click properties and un-tick small icons.
  13. I like my Fractal Silent Series 3 fans, they come in a 140mm and 120mm flavour and are very cheap. I also love the look of white fan blades spinning but that is preference,
