Coil Whine because of PSU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Specs:

CPU: i7 8700k: 4.7 Ghz 1.23v

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 3200MHZ 32GB

Mobo: Asus Maximus X Hero

GPU: EVGA 2080 FTW3: 2100 Core, 8000 Memory

PSU: Corsair RM750x

 

I was on a LAN a few days ago and my PC was connected to a Power Line that died out of nowhere.

I had a small noise problem before with my GPU but it wasnt this intense, only a slight noise that went away after I repositioned my PC. It could've been vibrations from my floor matt that is on a somewhat uneven wooden floor.

But now it is that way whenever my GPU is hit with a load (doesnt matter if stock speeds or OC). The moment I pause a game or close it, the noise is instantly gone.

I was wondering whether the Corsair RM750x might be at fault, cause there are many people that complained about general issues with that PSU on multiple sites and it might have taken a hit there.

I did read that sometimes a faulty PSU could be at fault if the power isn't clean or so on, but it wouldn't surprise me if it is the GPU after all.

 

General usage is not affected at all. There have been no difference so far from what I can tell, but the noise can really pierce through my open back headphones.

 

Any help is really appreciated!

Cheap fix is to buy a new psu and see what happens with the noise.

Ordered one, guess I'm just gonna need to try.
