GPU Coil Whine on a MSI 1080

Toffe

Hey all 

I have a MSI Codex XE case, with a GPU Msi 1080. 

I have catched Coil Whine .... 

My PSU is the one that followed the build, it is called a DELTA 550 (delta gps-550lb h)

 

I have heard that a better PSU can help against Coil Whine ? I have thought about changing it anyway, because it is loud AF ... 

Thinking about changing for the Corsair 650RM

 

But what are the odds it will help ? :D

it could help, tough nobody knows the odds. it's all just a guess.

you could also try giving your card a few more or even less Mhz on the core and memory. sometimes it is just enough to get rid of the whine (if you're lucky)

In my case it didn't help. Undervolting does help though, but that's at the cost of overclocking headroom.

Probably just going to try to return the card, less than a year old

Out of my 5 1080’s never had any whine. 

 

Having them on water I assume I could hear it but depending on the hz I may be deaf to it. 

 

I hear a better psu helps it quite a bit though.
