Hello guys.

I'm on the verge of having an nervous breakdown. Been spending so much time doing proper a-z research, creating spread sheets, compairing hardware, reading reviews, watching YouTube videos, you name it, for over 6 months in order to feel 100% secure in building my own rig for the very first time ever. Hardware list as follows:
  • Motherboard: Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero wi-fi
  • CPU: Ryzen 3950x
  • GPU: Asus ROG Strix Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti OC
  • PSU: Corsair RM850x
  • Ram: 64GB G.Skill TridenZ Neo 16CL b-die
  • Storage: 2 x 1TB Samsung Evo Plus
  • Cooler: Deepcool Captain 360EX AIO
  • Fans: 3 x Antec Prizm + 3 x Noctua NF-S12A
  • Case: Lian Li O11-Dynamic
This all ended in the grand finale yesterday night, with me finally getting to finishing up the physical build. Boot up went good, BIOS as well, installed Windows, and for the first 15 seconds, i was the happiest kid there is. And then BAM, it hit me straight in the face!:


This dead annoying electric-like kind of low pitched buzz started coming from somewhere around my upper PCIe slot. At first i thought it was the slot itself, so i switched my GPU to the second slot = no change, clean silent BIOS and boot, just to start buzzing like 15 seconds into Windows startup.

It's quite hard to pin-point the exact location of where the noise is coming from, but i am quite sure it's the GPU. Somewhere around where the PCIe power cables enter on the side of the card is my best guess.

I am really at loss here. I spent so much money on this, and have been looking insanely much forward to first load/using the machine, just to be slapped in the head with this bs. For such an amount of money i simply cannot accept this, and as i lack experience in the building game, i don't really know what to do from here.

Quick facts that might help you guys help me:
  • First all the video underplays this issue - the sound is definetely worse/more noticeable IRL.
  • Both boot, BIOS and first 15 seconds of Windows use = no problem what so ever.
  • I know (or at least have read about coil whine) and when compairing videos of people having this, with my noise - i don't think they match. Mine is much lower pitch, and more of a constant thing, while the coil whine sound clips i've seen/heard, are very dynamic in nature, going up and down in intensity and pitch. Also all cases i've read about, are when under medium to heavy load, and quite random when it comes to which games/software.
  • On the contrary the noise is there ALL OF THE TIME in my case. Not only on loads. Idle as well. Makes no difference what i'm doing. Browsing, gaming, video editing (made a quick test), or just leaving it there....all the same.
  • When i say "ALL THE TIME" it's not entirely true, there are sequences where the buzz is off for 3 seconds, and the start again by it self or by me "activating" it my doing an action in Windows (could be opening a new tab in Chrome).
    To understand this better, please watch the linked video above:

    00:00 - Buzz there from start
    00:02 - Me clicking (closing a Chrome tab) buzz stops
    00:05 - Buzz starts on its own again without me doing anything
    00:08 - Me clicking again (opening a Chrome tab this time) buzz stops
    00:11 - Buzz starts by it self yet again
    00:17 - Me clicking buzz stops
    00:20 - Buzz begins yet again while idling
    00:22 - I click, buzz momentarily stops for like 1/10 of a second but continues this time
    00:24 - Again, i click, buzz momentarily stops for 1/10 of a second and continues again
    00:25 - Same
    00:27 - Me clicking buzz stops
    00:28 - Buzz begins yet again while idling
    00:32 - Me clicking buzz stops
    On and on like this all day long.............drives me crazy!


  • Definetely audible even with fans on
  • Not a fan problem, i've turned them all off still having the issue
  • Not a PCIe slot problem, tried 2 different ones
I really hope you guys can help me with this. Like i write i simply can't live with this kind of buzzing all day long. I could understand it to some extend on heavy loads/high FPS while gaming, but hell no while browsing, and doing normal day to day working tasks. Especially as the buzz comes on and off all the time - makes it 100 times more noticable and annoying. Was it static and there at all times, i might (probably not) learn to live with it by getting used to it, but this type of noise comes to remind you it's there by starting and stopping over all the time. Having spent a fortune on a new rig of this calibre, i will absolutely not accept this - even if i come to the conclusion that this is "normal" - which i highly doubt (guess i would have seen a hell lot of more people complaining about this issue while doing my research earlier). Anyway, if it is - i will sent it all back.

And last thing, please listen carefully to the sound in the video, in stead of just quickly labelling it as coil whine. If it is, it is - but as i wrote it doesn't sound like it to me when comparing other videos.

PLEASE help a first time rig builder, what to do here?!

Thanks!

I would probably RMA the GPU or get a replacement it's most likely the culprit.


Does the noise get worse when you put the GPU under a high load?

Sounds like coil whine to me. It's hard to capture and many people mistake one thing for another. But the fact is... that sound you're hearing doesn't often go away. Call it what you want. Certain frequencies and loads will trigger it and though it sometimes settles down nobody ever reports it going away completely. It depends on whatever the magic resonant frequency is. It varies from card to card. I think most gpus will have it to some extent. It's just a matter of whether it's audible.

Just one of those unpredictable things that happens with gpu power stages. You could get another of the same card that's quiet. An expensive one that has it. A cheap one that doesn't... luck of the draw. Everyone who tries to fix it goes in circles. Best to replace the card and get on with life. :)

I wouldn't RMA... manufacturers are a toss up as to whether they take it seriously. Based on my recent dealings with Asus they're half liable to send back the same card after testing if it works. First course is return the card to the retailer

It will probably be my next step - just wanted to make sure on here first. Maybe i am overseeing something small, being able to fix the issue myself. Which i'm hoping very much for!

It is the psu. Check back again from 80plus.org its ithd.
Sorry if i'm misunderstanding you here, but RM850x is a 80 Gold PSU?

If you can still straight up get it replaced I would definitely do it...

The two most likely causes are
1 GPU
2 PSU

I would start by replacing the GPU preferably over rma because as @robot zombie said they're likely just going to send you the same card back.

Then if the replacement GPU does the same thing try replacing the psu.


After listening to it on my pc it definitely sounds like coil whine to me as well.

Will try, only problem is i've been waiting for weeks on some hardware to arrive, so the whole build has taken me like 5 weeks to complete. They only have 30 days return policy - but are known to be large some times. Worth a try. Other wise i will have to RMA.

This. It could be the PSU itself , the GPU itself, or the PSU not liking the GPU but that would be the first thing (PSU) I would replace then if it still occurs replace the GPU. I've had the same issue with several Seasonic OEM units even though your PSU is built by CWT (I've found them to play nice with most GPUs.)

Ithd electronic interference makes avionics grade psu differ from the standard.
Which one in particular? (min. 850w)

its electrical interference, from where is a good question, I guess the only way you can find out is by testing out different configurations if plausible, as said above, start with the GPU and PSU though I'd also be looking at audio connections and wiring as they can emit this annoying constant whining noise under certain scenarios as well, and chances are you could try out 20 different combinations of your current config with others and not have this problem making it a "unique" problem with your setup, though try and isolate the problem then you can aim to fix it.

Or you know.... your AMD motherboard and CPU don't like your NVIDIA GPU and are just showing their displease with it by constant heckling :p

What are you on about? Isn't that a CWT built PSU, Corsair branded? It COULD be the issue but we have no conclusive proof.

It's coil whine. I doubt highly electrical interference has anything to do with this.

PSU and/or GPU would be my guess like others said.

My bro had a loud whiny PSU once 'decent unit' and when he upgraded to a new GPU it completely stoped doing it.

In my current build my PSU does it too but its very low pitched and it happens as long as my PC has idle power which means I have to power off the entire PC when I go to sleep else I can hear that faint whiny noise in the bed ~3 meters from my PC 'sensitive ears'.:banghead:

Any idea if this GPU would be compatible with my ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero PCIe 4 mobo? Just to have a cheap ass GPU to test with in order to make sure noise is coming from my 2080 Ti:


It's PCIe 2 - don't know if a 570 board would read this dinosaur?

I’ve heard stories like this a few times.
It all comes down to PSU and GPU combination. There is nothing wrong with either of them. It’s just the pairing.

Frankly you can’t do much about it but to change one of them to different model or brand...

Yup, GPU choke coil whine. The problem is solvable but will take replacing either the GPU, the PSU or both.

The only other solution is to seal the coils by using superglue to fill the edges of the choke coils where the choke housing meets the PCB. The sound is being emitted from under the housing through the gap between choke's themselves and the board they're soldered to. Works everytime and does no harm, but you have to know what parts to seal.

It is an irresponsible answer because I did not see it directly, but is it a replacement of the power supply unit? RYZEN uses more power when idle, so the sound is unique. I would suggest testing the power supply unit on another PC. For the time being, the cause can be isolated.

Unless you have a spare/old CPU/GPU, if not, and if you have any real friends, borrow a GPU and a PSU and swap either one out and see if the whine is still there. If not, do some load testing too.

I'm siding with the majority here.
It seems to be coil whine from the PSU or GPU.

That video in the OP's post showed the problem very clearly being GPU coil whine. I've seen/heard that sound many times. PSU noise has a very different characteristic and sound tone.
