I just did a stress test and said it failed... lol not sure what happened there
It's called coil whine and it's normal, won't affect the card.
If you didn't raise the targets or voltage it won't go very far on stock. You'll also need to pretty much max the fan as the auto ramp won't be quick enough to help the heat. Should also mention, the maxed voltage meter and clicking overvoltage are within the tolerances built into the bios. It won't do anything to damage the card. I ran 2 980s at 1540-1600 for 6 months straight like that and IIRC iFargle is still using them.
