hello everyone i had my Matrix GTX 580 P for a while now and i started to notice more and more that it makes a slightly high pitch noise kinda like friktion against rubber or something like that. it only happens under load and this happens in all games but when i turn the grafic settings to low in the game then it stops. i was just wondering if anyone else are experiencing the same kind of noise when playing.
i dont think power is the propblem since i have Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 850 Watts PSU
hope someone can help me 😄 and thank you on advance 😄
My card does the same thing, seems directly related to gpu load, and higher Gpu frequency's and/or voltages make it a higher pitch whine. I can only hear it if I'm listening for it though - its not that loud, the case fans are almost louder, and its definitely from the card. Would it be the vrm's on the card?

i too have had this problem, i thought it was normal!
the other day i was cleaning my rig and had removed the matrix when i noticed that one of the power connectors wa NOT clipped in all the way, didnt think anything of it it was only when I had it all back together and was benchmarking that I realized that my whine noise was gone, checked my temps and the power tempature was sitting 8c lower than it was before on load.
previously I was only able to achieve a stable overclock of 940mhz @ 1.15, now I am stable @ email@example.com.
I am not sure how the unclipped power connector was having such effect but my only guess is because it was not clipped in it was causing ripple or noise when trying to draw full amps.
Thanks for that bit of information Ronan what you have described is quite a common problem, with some cards (not just the Matrix) the female socket is so snug that it is hard to fit the connector and people are a little cautious about pushing hard with a $500 card.
To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.
hey, i also have the same problem, the furest i can pinpoint the noise is on the pcb, above the middle of the led sign, around the TR letters, i have checked my 8 pin power leans and they seem fine, system is deftinately stable as i have been running furmark foor 30 mins + my specs are as follws PSU :- HX750 Corsair mobo :- asus p7p55d-e matrix currently @ 976MHz for 1144mV more info can be provided if required hope that helps boogman
hi, and thanks, no the noise does now go away, however it is only when the card is under full stress, if i ease the gpu usage to 70% it disappears totally, tested this at 400MHz core, stock and at 1GHz and same for all 3 thanks boogman
hey, cheers for the heads up, i am not fussed about the noise, 90% of the time infront of the computer i have my vulcans on so i cant hear it anyway, just wanna makesure its a "normal noise" and nothing to worry about and that my card isnt gonna die on me cheers boogman
The high pitched noise or squeal is somewhat common with todays high powered graphic cards. It has to do with capacitor coils vibrating when under heavy GPU load, thus producing the squealing noise. There is not much that can be done to eliminate it, it will not harm the graphic card, really nothing to worry about.
Enabling Vsync (60 FPS cap) while playing games usually reduces or eliminates the noise...
thus confirming that it's capacitor coil "whine".
