[Graphic card] Sometimes there is a slight high-frequency noise

What causes high-frequency noise (Coil Whine)?

When the system loading changed, the electrical current changes under the low performance of GPU. While the current flows through the electric components inside the graphic card, it causes resonance and then high-frequency noise happens. This is the component characteristic, and it won’t affect the hardware.


How to prevent high-frequency noise (Coil Whine)?

The coil whine is easier to be heard in a quiet environment, or for the people who are more sensitive of higher frequency sound. ASUS will reduce the noise as much as possible, but this noise can’t be completely eliminated due to this sound is a physical phenomenon produced by normal using a device.
