Default Overclocked 7900GT whining?

Volt modded the thing today and have pushed it just about to its limits now. When i run the video card stability test, the card makes a whining noise... Doesnt seem to do it with any other 3d applications. Anyone any experience with this?

It's normal.


When I volt modded mine It did the same thing.

It's ok but basically you need to get ram sinks and sink the two IC's on the back of the card. Basically they are getting hot, and you should sink them before running 3D intensive Apps.





Ignore the bubbles and what they say.

See those IC's? Get some Ram Sinks and Sink those baby's.


They get extremely hot.

I went out and got two packs of the thermaltake copper ramsinks. In store it was under $20 for two packs.
