No! I am playing Crysis 2 second time, Skyrim and Assassin's Creed Revelations, neither of them are lagging! And all of my games are running and they give me min. fps of 50, never below it! Running Darn Smooth!

I think it's okay! :)

ryt?

Ok just to make sure does the sound that you hear sound something like this:

Corsair tx650w coil whine - YouTube

or this:

Gigabyte Geforce GTX 560 TI OC Coil Whine. - YouTube

corsair vid is the head on HDD noise i hear

gigabyter is just sound harmonics of the fans pwm's @ 29sec


buy ear plugs or 3 gallons of vegetable oil and fish tank to silent cool only issue after time the oil wicks up the wires make a mess

OP in 3D mode video just ramps up the fans and juice to card

coil whine is a transformer sound of the line phase high pitch when AC oscillates vibrating coil windings

Nothing to worry about then.
THere is really nothing you can do for the most part (Other than I know some people put nail polish on the offending parts and that seems to quiet the coils).

First thing don't submerge your comp into oil it will cause your computer to overheat for extended periods of use not to mention the mess. The first video I linked to is coil whine but a very bad case of it. As for the second vid it is harder to tell exactly what it is but if it sounds like that you really don't have anything to worry about. If you can find the problematic coil on your video card you can use hot glue or nail polish to put onto it to dampen the vibration of the coil but you'll most likely have to take the heatsink off to get to the coil. So best to just deal with the noise and turn the volume up on your game.
