My System Specs

Default Weird Sound while playing!

Hi guyz,
Never happened, but as i recently installed FiFA12 on my PC. no AA, high rendered, 1600x900 reso. I was playing that suddenly I noticed whenever i entered to new option, some variable "Dial-Tone like" sound was coming outta my Card! I know i should check HDD first but seriously, thats weird, I was carefully hearing that no sign of sound from my HDD it was definitely my GPU making that sound, and as it got higher, i closed the game!


Help me! First time facing this weird problem! :(

Note* Just happening with Fifa, playing Assassin's Creed Revelations+SKyrim, no issue with them

thanks!

Sounds like your hearing the infamous coil whine of the GPU?

It's probably just coil whine, run furmark and see if it make the noise again. If it makes the noise it just means the card is working a little harder. Nothing too serious my 4 year old 4890 has been making a coil whine noise ever since I got it and it hasn't died yet.

If it's coil whine it's not necessarily on its deathbed, it's just operating at a particular frequency that's in resonance with the coils, causing vibration you can hear.

Like enaberif said 80-90C is starting to get warm and your current temps are fine. Are you getting graphical artifacts? Is your game freezing up or lagging horribly? If not you're fine.
