Hello, when i open some game i heard a wierd noise coming from the area of the mobo where the graphic cards is located.

I did some benchmarks and this noise only occurs at the graphic cards benchmark. I also tested with a different graphic card.

Any thoughts on this?

Thoughts:

1) What does the weird noise sound like?

2) Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS.

3) Try to narrow down the physical source/location of the sound. I would not expect that two different GPUs would present the same results. However, that may be moot if you used the same make and model GPU.

What GPUs are you using: original and different?

Something electrical: popping, snapping, sparking, hum, buzz.....?

Key is to pinpoint the location of the sound.

Use a cardboard tube or rolled up paper tube to carefully listen in and around the graphic card pcie area.

Hold the tube to your ear and point the other end towards suspected sound locations.

Be very careful not to touch or bump anything.
