    My 2080ti has worked flawless on an MSI X470 Motherboard for the past year,

    Yesterday i swapped out the board for an MSI X570 Meg ACE board, and during high fps loads the gpu now has what appears to sound like coil whine.

    Can that be a thing? swapping a motherboard will make the gpu have coil whine all of a sudden? I've not had that before.

    Any reason to worry? as everything seems to be running perfectly other than the slight audible buzz at high gpu load.

    Worth swapping out my rm850i to see if that helps?

    Cheers.

    So i tried a 2070 super in the rig, can hear the same coil whinesque buzz under gpu load.
    both gpus work fine in a different rig. So im assuming its the board, thats causing this, unless the psu created an issue all of a sudden?

    Just to be sure, try both with the old board.

    Tried with two diff x570s same coil whine, but none on a x470.

    Tried with an rm850i and a hx1000i still same noise.

    Repadded the 2080ti around the coils with thicker grizzly pads and it quietens it a bit.

    I'll ride it out till 3 series.

    Same here. It was killing me TBH. Had Fury +z97 +5775C. High FPS - coil whine. But this was card only and not very audible. Something I got used too, especially as I played mostly with headphones. With speakers, well, barely audible. Then I changed gfx, to msi 1080 gaming x. Had slight coil whine too. Mind you, I always had sound blaster sound card, first ZX, then AE-5, and AE-7 lately. Windows7 or 10 was used in dualboot.
    Some 2y ago I changed platform to z370 Taichi +8086k. EVGA G2 PSU was used 550W and 750W now. Coil whine again. But now, I had this coil whine on speakers, louder settings more noticeable. (AE-5 and AE-7).
    Headphones audio was clean, no additional noise. Changed from 1080 to radeon7 - more FPS, more coil whine(speakers mostly driving me mad). In addition, my mobo suck at PCIE priorities, so when I have AE-7 in last slot -PCIE-16 instead PCIE-4 then I have GFX PCIE bandwidth halved from 16x to 8...and coil whine is no matter what slot is used. AND this is on Windows10 only, 7 is free of this crap...
    Now, since like month, I have 2080S....imagine, still coil whine :p
    For speakers I have to use it https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B076J3GD74/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I'm strongly suspect that my PSU EVGA(leads with capacitors!) plus MB combination invokes coil whine, but might be wrong. In other PC, my old 1080 does not whine....and has different PSU there.
    On the other hand, my son's PC had for some time 1080(mainly vega64 was used) and with MSI z370 sli plus he had no coil whine. Same with nitro 5700xt now. His PSU is EVGA G2 850W...

    yeah id tried a hx1000i and coil whine still occured, to be fair its lessened over the past week or so, plus i slightly raised my fan profile and its blended it in. so not noticable now. Maybe it had done it a while, but only noticed on a reinstall. No issue really. the card will be going when new series come out.
