Seems like I am getting a lot of it under load in benchmarks but not in games. Any ideas how this can be?

Current system. CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X; MoBo: Gigabyte X570S Aorus Master; RAM: 2x Crucial Ballistix MAX 2x8 GB (BLM2K8G40C18U4B); GPU: RX 6900 XT Gigabyte Aorus Master; case: Fractal Design Meshify-2; Storage: Samsung 980PRO 1TB NVMe SSD + 2x Samsung 980 1TB NVMe SSD; PSU: Seasonic Focus GX-850; Cooling: Arctic Liquid Freezer II 360.

Coil whine typically shows up under heavier GPU loads (but not always), which could explain why the benchmarks have it. Or it's just the benchmarks stressing the card in a way that different enough from gaming to produce coil whine.

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

Thanks, I did not even realise that it was coil noise to begin with, I thought that AMD screwed up my audio drivers somehow, because of how loud it was.
