I got my GTX 980 Strix about 2 weeks back but I never noticed the static noise it produces until about a week ago. It's near completely silent with no load (very slight buzzing, nearly inaudible). Is it coil whine or something? It seems weird as I get the sound even with V-Sync on.

Any tips appreciated, thanks in advance.

Corsair RM 750W is my PSU for any who wanted to know.

The noise you hear is the sound of the fan motor slightly moving.

Since the STRIX are designed not to run the fan at all under idle so the leftover power just flow right past through the motor which it causes to make slight buzzing noise.

Good Luck!
