Since you are a new member, your link was destroyed by the forum.
Obfuscate it for us a bit, and then it will appear.
 
For example: youtube.com/watch?v=5YuSsYGj5S4
Leave of the http and www stuff, and the forum doesn't detect it. ;)

If I crank my headphones, I hear it.  Obviously that has a lot to do with your microphone and stuff, so I trust that you can hear it enough to be annoyed by it; otherwise you wouldn't be here.
 
Whoops!  It definitely seems like EVGA messed this up.  Seems like a PWM frequency issue.  I wonder why EVGA would make 2 fans operate at a frequency which isn't annoying, but then choose a different annoying frequency for the 3rd fan.  Seems like a mistake or oversight.  Unless they can fix it with firmware (seems doubtful), this is probably just the way its going to be until/if EVGA revises it in a future batch.

It's definitely noticeable, watching that video with in-ear headphones at nearly max volume about matches the sound I hear sitting in front of my computer.

I definitely didn't need to start a new thread, didn't realize how long the other one had gotten, sorry about that =)

Running it now, I think you guys got it. All I hear is proper fan whoosh at 76% fan speed now. Big thanks for all the squeak slayers that knocked this out in 24 hrs.
