Asus 3090 Strix OC coil whine

i received my 3090 Strix OC on monday, after a bit of testing i notice a really loud coil whine in specific load scenarios (games/benchmarks).

does anyone here have the card already as well? i'm curious if the coil whine persists on all cards or if it is just mine.

I don't have that card but from my understanding coil whine can possibly be remove with a change in psu's

i use a new Corsair HX1000 Platinum PSU, also from my understanding coil whine shouldn't relate to the PSU as long as it is not undersized.

in some rare cases... usually not, it's definitely not worth it to do so anyways unless you bleed money

 

Unfortunately, coil whine is normal, you are either lucky and have a card that doesn't have it or you are unlucky and you have it... not that much you can do about it. It's not harmful or anything.

Usually but not always.

Other things to try are:

Remounting the gpu

Don't use daisy chain/pig tail to connect power

Try a different driver or wait for the next one/ sometimes a window update will fix this

Under clock or under volt your gpu

Decrease frames in game

thx, i already remounted gpu und psu. the gpu is powered by 3 seperate power cables.

are drivers really a factor in coil whine? the noise is mechanical so i don't get how a driver should change this?

undervolting would be the last thing i try to do,  i have to see if i can borrow a psu to see if this is really the issue.

frames are not the problem, it happens in benchmarks even with 50 fps.

yeah i wouldn't mind to buy a new one if it fixes the coil whine, it's just a bit shitty as i already bought sleeved cables.

the thing is that the coil whine is really loud, i can hear it clearly over the fans which are already loud on the 3090 :(

i must have been lucky in the past as i've never had a card with coil whine.

have the 3080 with an 850watt RM corsair psu.. it also has coilwhine, although the asus card luckily has the low level hum, not coil squeel...

 

to be honest, having been fighting this issues since back in the AMD64 days on GPU´s and even motherboards, i´m just tired of it, so my test now is 2 fold, can i hear it at my desk in a silent room, with case closed.. currently only at HIGH FPS (300+) in certain titles, or COD 1440p RTX at 140ish fps..

 

it´s never intrusive... it is just sometimes there..
