[quote="Genesys":1tvxo0ro]Anyway the sound could be generated by the high frequency work the GPU is doing when in full work at unlimited framerate.[/quote:1tvxo0ro]
well actually this seems to be the problem, google said that gigabyte fanless gpus tend to do that and it is quite normal. thanks, my precious is saved :)

I guess half a billion transistors working at maximum capacity aren't silent :P

Some electronic components (specially capacitors and coils) begin to make noises under some conditions due long usage cycles (when their life cycle is near to it's end). How old is your graphics card?

In case it's not that old, it may just be defective components.

I think noise is normal, not necessarily a defect thing.

This is also very typical of power supplies.

Mine has been playing up lately, and I notice high pitched noises when certain things are on the screen, or certain operations are being performed.

If I lightly tap the power supply with a hard object (like my knuckle) it will temporarily stop.

If this is happening from your power supply, the poer supply is deemed faulty according to warranty guidelines and should be exchanged (if warranty still applies) or replaced if you can't deal with the noise.

Luckily my PSU is under warranty still, and I plan on getting it swapped over since the problem is new and it wasn't exactly a cheap PSU.
