So far It is quiet. I have things I have to do before I will let myself play a game, but in the benchmarks I ran all I heard was fans ramp up.
I don't know what coil whine sounds like. I have watched videos on it and even with my noise cancelling headset, I still can't hear anything. It might mean I have it now and didn't know. My friend who installed it with me, said it only had slight whine and with side panel on, I shouldn't hear it.
My PC is between me and window, so I am back to thinking any noise I hear is PC. I turned PC off last night and a noise I thought was my PC was still there after PC was off. I went through this for about a year after building PC.
3Dmark makes my PC seem way better than it is.
I got 4 legendary scores on 4 different tests before I found out why.
No one else has the same CPU/GPU combo as I do. So top scores out of box.
Seems I am running the OC bios but I think it comes set to that as default.
I haven't played with making card faster, its already slaughtered my last GPU in one test.
