    Hi all,
    Just bought myself a new 560 ti and have just recently noticed this loud squeak coming from the graphics card its self. I have recently decided to give folding ago and since then i have heard it. Can this be normal and doesn’t affect any think with the card? Scan said i could send it back for testing. But is it worth all the hassle?
    I have also noticed that an old gtx 260 and gtx 460 also squeak when near full load?
    Is it just me and my sensitive hearing or is there a serious problem?
    Any help would be great
    Thanks

    During OC testing my 6950 I oc'd the nuts off it and it made some similar sounds. Although they scared me so I pulled back the OC.
    If your card is stock then I'd be wary. If one of your mates have a computer try it in that and see if you can replicate it, if some I'd possibly send it back to scan

    Unlikely to be a serious problem. Might be a choke. Annoying....very much so. Deadly.... not normally :)

    With a squealing GPU, it's possible to bench 3DM01 with your eyes closed and know exactly where the bench is at because the squeals change tone depending on the scene :D

    Hey all,
    Sorry for delay been working too much. I tested in a completely different set-up and still getting this quite irritating squeal. Oh well scan said they will test it so i might as well send it back. another thing was that the graphics driver kept crashing, even after re-installing it, and failing to display a image on start-up once, gone back to my old gtx 460 and having no problems now. Could be a faulty card, I don’t know? But it was fun to play bf3 on ultra for a week xD
    Thanks
    James
