gigabyte g1 gaming windforce gtx 980 coil whine!

kxrider85

I just installed my new gtx 980 (upgraded from a 760) and the first thing I notice when I run a game is an unbearable coil whine that I NEVER experienced with my old gtx 760. It performs fine though and has the latest drivers. It is also significantly quieter when I turn v-sync on, but still rather annoying as the new loudest component of my pc. Does everyone else have this issue? Has anyone fixed it, or should I just try to swap it out for another...?

I'd suggest trying to get it swapped for another.

 

My 970 G1 Gaming (970 was plagued with coil whine the worst) has very little coil whine, whereas others with the same card have terrible coil whine, it's just kinda luck.

is it in the case and the case is closed up?

Yes.

 

Does anyone have suggestions for gtx 980 video card brands that do not have as bad of coil whine, or should just trying another gigiabyte windforce card work?

try another gigabyte one, if you can get that one replaced at no costs, otherwise evga/msi/zotac are pretty good
