    Why is that part important? I thought it was a 4090 issue on PSU in general, not the 4090 brand? But it's MSI Gaming Trio.

    Just tested without headphones - did hear something tiny but barely audible, wouldn't hear it from more than a metre away. Probably less now than it was on my old setup!

    Absolutely ridiculous aren't they. Makes you wonder if this kit is incredible or the previous generations were actually underpowered...

    Do all brands use the same power delievery system? No ? Then it's pretty facking important which one you got...

    But nice for you.

    Yeah, I also tried to get one of 15, the instant the purchase button appeared, I clicked it and it wasn't available anymore. :(

    I'm not following why you're being angry and hostile with me, I have no beef with you Dragam?

    Only way they could get one that fast is bots that instant does everything... -_-

    Btw it was 15+... they dont say how many above 15 units they got... could have been 16, could have been 100.

    Komplett still has a massive amount of this model in stock at just above msrp though

    Well, if you have been following the thread, several of us have been trying to pinpoint which models have coilwhine, and together with which psu's... which is kinda hard when that info is excluded. Asus models in particular seems to have issues with coilwhine.

    I see. That's even more disturbing then. Or maybe they list more cards than they actually have?
    Too bad they only deliver to Denmark, though. :(

    Meanwhile over here, Ditech and E-tec who have actually had some overpriced cards in stock for roughly a week have raised their prices on RTX 4090s again (yes, even on in-stock cards which were already overpriced by up to €500, so it doesn't look like their suppliers are scalping) and they are now from €600-900 Euros above their respective MSRP. So yeah. People don't buy their overpriced cards, how to solve it? Raise the prices even more. Gotta love actual stores that are scalping... :(

    So you don't have to return the hardware? Good for you man! Always great to see a fellow Guru get his problem solved.

    At Proshop I assume? Don't know how it is in DK but ppl in SE are fed up with Proshop since it says that they have a lot of 4090s in stock but they are impossible to order. Proshop writes that at 14:00 every day they open for sales but nobody manages to get one.

    Yeah, but I noticed the same level of coil whine on my old NZXT Hale82 850W which isn't noticeable at all once the fans kick in.

    I haven't, apologies.

    I just saw the tail end, talking about the PSU brands which do, hence I left a post saying I'd report back on my results with Corsair. Sorry if I offended anyone.

    I tell a lie, I must have scanned a little because I did notice mention on the ROGs doing it. But yeah, MSI, in my case, on Corsair, seems to be trouble free.

    Good news! Looks like I managed to secure a ASUS RTX 4090 TUF from Proshop (I won't believe it until I actually got shipping confirmation)! :D
    They made that model (listed 2 in stock) available at 15:00 instead of 14:00 of the other cards so I guess all the bots weren't programmed to hit the site at that particular time.

    Now to shop for a suitable water block.

    Hopefully it won't have coil whine. I'll report back once I have the card.

    By the way, perhaps it would be a good idea to start a focused 4090 coil whine thread with some instructions on what info to share so the investigation would be easier?

    Big gz :D

    But yes, a dedicated 4090 coilwhine thread might not be a bad idea, seeing as quite a few people seem to have it !

    Ya didn't offend, i was just already semi annoyed.

    But from what i can tell, the msi gaming seems to have coilwhine less often than the surprim.

    Basically from the anecdotal evidence so far, the coilwhine seems to be worse on the highest performance models.

    PS. i got a corsair psu aswell, though an ax1200i.

    the melting 4090 12vhpwr is making rounds, would be interesting to see what that's all about and under what exact conditions

    not connecting things properly tends to do that.

    Reminder that Buildzoid is not a qualified electrical engineer.
