View Full Version : Strange noise while running ATITool 0.0.22
Sep 5, 2004, 01:27 PM
Hi, I've got a slight problem with ATITool 0.0.22. It's probably nothing to worry about but when the 3d view is opened and the cube is spinning i hear a strange noise like a fan sruggling to spin (a squealy type noise). This ONLY happens when the cube is spinning not while it is stationery. I haven't got a clue why this happens but i think its my CPU fan but it never happens while playing games/benchmarks or any other app. I'm totally stumped!! Any ideas?

I have the same problem after i upgraded my Video card from a PowerColor 9600PRO to a HIS 9800PRO.

this sound comes from the voltage regulation circuitry on the video card .. in certain situations the coils start emitting sounds - this is nothing to worry about. in theory it should happen to every card, just in different situations (varies between individual cards)

Ok thanks for the info guys, just wondered what it could be it didn't sound too healthy!! Cheers, Si.

for some reason my x800 pro with a silencer 4 on it makes that sound all the time (at all percentages). It aint the fan cuz i stopped it with my finger for a split sec and the sound continues. Is there a way to get rid of the sounds? Other then shutting the fan off :D

with 3d marks 03 my PSU 550W superSilent makes such a noise...intervalls of "little pieps"...must be different voltages working hard when staring a Benchmark or other heavy Apps...but it's only with 3dMarks03...
