Please, post a simple yes or no to the question. Do you have coil whine on a 900 series card by EVGA?

    Not I.....It seems to be mostly on those who have purchased the actual NVidia's Reference cards, that I have come across, being mentioned. Mind you, that statement comes from trolling many forums on the subject. Tho, I did come across some that have mentioned, at certain fan speeds above 60%, on FTW, SSC & 980 models, have had some coil whine, but nothing too overly noticable when playing games.

    That last part sounds like the annoying ACX rattle more than coil whine. Honestly, the only way that I was able to lower coil whine with the 700 series, was to buy 780 TI Classified with the custom PCB. I am hoping because EVGA has a custom PCB on the ACX models this year, that they will not have coil whine. I want to be sure before pulling the trigger, hence my poll.

    Yes, over 8 cards and 2 manufacturers. Nothing I can do to clear it up. Swapped motherboards, PSUs, clean power inverter, and all new wires.

    Yet, these crappy manufactures do nothing to resolve this annoying issue.

    Well, Asus and EVGA saw my youtube videos and both instantly said that it's not normal and offered to RMA. ASUS RMA = instant horrible experience and that made my final decision to return the Asus Strix and come back to evga.
     
    It's very annoying to spend $1200+ on new cards and then have to get a hold put on your credit card for another $1200 while you get 2 way shipping. I think its a waste because after going through 8 cards, what is my chance of going through all this trouble of RMA and just get 2 more that whine and have low asic scores lol.
     
    These cards are stable at 1550 on air and both have 80% asic scores so it's hard to send them back..
     
    Eh, tried to add the audio/video files via youtube link, but seems I cant post those.

    I can hear it slightly on my 970 FTW but only when I am folding at home. During gaming I don't hear it. 

    Specs: AMD 1920X Threadripper, Samsung SM961 M.2, 32GB Corsair RGB Vengeance,  ASRock X399 Taichi MB, Corsair, 1000D PC case, RTX 2070

    Thanks, everyone... Keep the votes coming. So far, 6  have it, 7 don't. (one said he had 8 between two manufactures, but I don't know how many were EVGA and I counted it as one)

    No coil whine, FTW 970, but the fans are more loud than I have expect.

    Re: Poll, who has coil whine? 2014/11/11 03:44:36 (permalink)
    2x 970 FTW SLI, both with coil whine.
     
    The whine has been noticed only in game menus so far (FIFA 14 from boot up all the way to in a match - http://youtu.be/gLU8rVqEBA8; Hitman Absolution throughout the whole intro sequence after boot up, Unigine Heaven/Valley credits screen upon exiting the application are a few of the areas noticed). Zero coil whine in Windows, or if there's a frame rate limiter.
     
    Even though EVGA is honoring their warranty to affected coil whine cards; I want first to check if the cards have any other anomaly (see http://forums.evga.com/FindPost/2248723 for more info). If not, I'll try to "burn in" the whine first before troubling them (and myself) with RMA. I'm also undecided regarding installing my WC blocks already or not, as they would help checking if there's coil whine in-game; but if the cards need to be RMA'ed, I'd be giving myself double work by installing the WC blocks, to get the stock coolers back for RMA.
     
    However, something I can confirm is that I didn't switch to water for lower temps and lower noise, to then be annoyed with high pitch electric circuitry in game menus. This did not happen with my HD6950s (flashed to HD6970s). The only gfx card that passed by my hands was a Sapphire Vapor-X before I got the 6950s and the thing didn't spend 30mins on my PC, going straight back to the box and returned to the store.
     
    [Edit: Link added with the video displaying the coil whine in FIFA, while testing one of the cards.]

    Yes, a high amount on both FTWs I've had.  My third arrives today.
     
    EDIT: Third card has been tested and also has very loud coil whine...
     
    Time to contact EVGA.

    gtx 980 refreence - Only get very slight coil whine under folding core 15 work units, not during gaming/benchmarking/crunching or even folding other work units.
