I'm surprised we're covering warranty for coil whine... Either way double check your NCIX warranty. Most video card brands are only covered for the first 30 days from us, and if you're doing an exchange for credit, there's no way you'll get a full refund for your purchase price, so if you hold it for longer, the value of the card will go down for sure.

Just giving you a heads up.

That's fine I will just get a replacement then. PLus I had you guys assemble the computer which comes with a one year warranty from you guys. I wouldn't mind it if it only did it a bit but it doesn't stop and I get headaches from the noise:(

I actually noticed the whine on my 8800gt when I had it in my system if I overclocked the core to a certain speed it would start to make a bit of a whining sound. I think it was like 656 or something on the core, but if I went down to like 655 it would stop. WEIRDNESS

So our families hung out with each other for the rest of the time and became friends. What are the odds.
I moved to Ontario from NF in 2002. I head out to a bar my first few weeks here and we meet up with some other folks. I start talking to a girl who was also from NF. Talking a bit and we find out that we have relatives from a couple of communities that are really close together. Then we realize that we had the same last name. Then we realize that our grandfathers were brothers...
