  1. The problem is that I don't have a replacement motherboard and I use my computer every day, so I'm in a bit of a pickle.

  2. Hello, I've had a major issue with coil whine recently on my 6 month old system and I just don't know what to do anymore.

No noteworthy issues, good cooling, etc. However, today I started a game and got some extremely loud noises coming from my PC. I can only assume it is coil whine.

I've done some troubleshooting in the meantime and found out that stress tests such as Prime95 do not
