    Reduce Coil whine

    All GPUs are different and some may have more coil whine than others. I'm not trying to go into who has more issues than who. I just want to start a discussion about Motherboard affecting coil whine. In my research i found no link between motherboard and GPU coil whine but mine went away with a different motherboard. I want to figure out why and maybe someone will find this helpful.
  2. Hello all, I want to preface this with the fact that I do not know everything and this is just something that happened to work for me. I upgraded from a GTX 1060 to an RTX 2070 EVGA XC Gaming https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07J63W42X/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I had terrible coil whine.. It's overclocked +80 on the core and +500 on the memory but that made no difference. I could hear it over fans turned all the way up.. I looked at buying a new PSU which I didn't want to do because this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079HGN5QS/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 is only a month old in my system. I looked at UPS systems but i read that that might not even work so i figured I'm just screwed. I happened to buy a new Motherboard. Going from this https://www.amazon.com/Prime-Z390-P-LGA1151-Intel-Motherboard/dp/B07HCT5GBD/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=asus+prime+z390p&qid=1553182368&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull to this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HCXT591/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 That (mostly) fixed the coil whine!!!!! It's still there but i have to turn everything down and put the game on mute to hear it. This post is not a how to guide on how to fix coil whine but hopefully someone can see this and see that there is another potential cause/fix for coil whine. Hopefully people who know more than i do can chime in here. Thanks

    Tv Screen issues

    Hello, I am experiencing weird issues with my display. It's a TCL https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MTGM5I9/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc. My system is: 9700k, 16g 3200mhz ram, GTX 1060 6GB. I play gta 5 in 4k high settings, BF5 at 1080p max settings, Cities skylines 1080p max, Black ops 4 1080p max. If FPS drops below 60 i will lower a couple settings. The issue is intermittent, There will be flickering green lines maybe 1 pixel wide and goes the length of the screen horizontally. It usually comes up when i change to 4k but persists when i switch back. I can't track down the issue, I change the graphics settings, change resolution and even change the HDMI cable which worked this time. In addition to that issue, there will be some bad screen tearing once every 40 to 60 seconds but only for a frame or two. Adaptive sync is on from the nvidia control panel. No difference with that setting on or off. That issue wasn't solved with that change. I should also mention that this issue was around before i got a new system. At that time i had an AMD system with 16g DDR3 and a 1050ti. I'm trying to see if there's anything i can do before getting a new TV. Thanks!
