Coil whine is driving me absolutely nuts.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have a 4gb ROG Strix RX 570 that just started having some audible coil wine to the point where unless I'm actively listening to something or wearing headphones it kind of drives me nuts. I just got a new CPU, so in cases where I used to have the graphics card bottlenecked it isn't anymore which is awesome because I finally have good performance! But since I could almost never get it to higher resource usage before I don't think I realized this would be something that would come along let alone bother me so much. Is there any way to mitigate this or am I gonna have to just deal. If I have to just deal its okay but I'm not loving the increased noise.

You're just going to have to deal with it.


Be sure to QUOTE or TAG me in your reply so I see it!

Coil whine is natural due to the fact that inductors vibrate at a frequency we can hear...so as @RAS_3885said, you will have to deal with it. The only other option would be to RMA your RX 570 if ASUS accepts coil whine under their RMA policies.

If you don't want to RMA, another option would be to over/underclock your GPU Core Clock and GPU Memory Clock to see if you can find a frequency that doesn't cause coil whine.

 

I had an old laptop that would whine really bad when the cpu ran at lower speeds when not under load or on battery. It got so bad that I turned off that feature in the BIOS. I got worse battery life, but hey, no coil whine!

I haven't heard of any cure for it either.

I have a desktop that I like to play old games on and it drives me crazy with the whine too.  😬

I'll be playing multiplayer and have to turn the volume on my speakers up high just so I can hear the car engine in the game.

The freaking whine is so bad that even then I still hear it mixed in with the rest of the game sounds.
