However at the same time, I started getting new WU's so that might've been the actual solution. If anything, you'll find that downclocking your gpu will change the type/amount of squeal and hopefully make it more manageable.

TL:dr, suck it up and live with it or get a new psu:P
I hate those adapters and will never use em.

If you need to use em.. get a new PSU.
