    Default x48t-dq6 and 4870x2

    I have recently purchased a X48T-DQ6 and a HIS 4870X2. I am finding that when I am playing games, a buzzing noise comes from the computer. I have moved the GPU from the top PCI-E slot to the bottom PCI-E slot and still have the noise. I was finding that a buzzing noise was coming from the computer when I had a 8800 GTS GPU, but the noise wasn't as loud. I have a 1000watt Corsair Power Supply, Q9450 CPU and OCZ 1600MHz Platinum RAM. The parts are installed in a Silverstone TJ10 Case. Any ideas what could be causing this problem? I have tried unplugging the front USB and Audio Headers, and have removed all expansion cards.

    Is the noise coming from the speakers, or inside the case itself?

    If it is in the case you are going to need to test your card in another PC or test another card in your PC and see if the noise is from the card or not.

    Other things that can make that noise is your PSU and caps on your motherboard

    The sound is coming from in the case around the video card somewhere. Considering there was previously a fainter noise coming from the case before with my previous video card, I feel that it could be the motherboard. Considering that it makes the noise in both PCI-E slots, would there still be a possibility that it is the board. I thought that from using two different slots, it would be using different capacitors.

    Well from what you say I am not sure. If it is the card then it would make the sound in any slot so slot number would not matter if it is the card.

    I do not suspect the board itself personally until you rule out the card and PSU

    The only way I can think you could tell is to try another card in your system and see if the sound is still there. Or take your card to a friends house and see if it makes the sound in his PC, or another PC in your house if you have

    Thankyou for your reply. I have previously been using a 8800 GTS which in some games would make very faint noises, but it wasn't consistent in all games like the 4870X2. I'll try a different PSU and see what happens.

    Don't you have a different card you can test in your system to see if the sound goes away? If not can't you take your card to a friends and see if his system then makes the same sound with your card in it?

    Ya, it could be your PSU but I would not buy another one before I found out if it was the card making the sound or not

    Have you adjusted the fan on the card, sometimes certain fan speeds may sound like buzzing rather then actual fan sounds as well. Just another thing for you to think about

    I know the card is $$ Expensive and you do not want to RMA it, but it is better to find out if it is the card before you buy other new items and then later find out for sure it is the card.

    I'm %100 sure that it isn't the fan on the video card making the noise. I have tested another card and it doesn't make the same noise. I might add that there was a funny faint buzz when playing games with the previous card, but not nearly as loud as the new one. It is a strange problem, I can hear buzzing noises when I scroll down web pages, etc.

    OK, well I mentioned fan as a additional thought. You still need to see if it is the card or not, the capacitors on the card can also make this noise

    Do you have a Sound card connected? If so can you move it to a lower PCI slot away from your GFX card, this also sometimes causes noises

    Hello i am french. I have the same problem.

    I have got an ati radeon 4870x2 gainward since one week.

    qx9650

    x48t dq6 gigabyte

    2*1g pc12800

    corsair hx1000w

    xfi fatality

    xp professional



    The card can run normaly, i did 15700 mark on 3dmar06, with my 8800gts v2 i did 14780 marks.

    The most stranger was the cpu score 5050 with nvidia car and 4400 with ati.

    My pc is configured at nominal freqency, just 400 fsb *7.5 = 3.00ghz

    My retailer, test it on his system, a e8500 x48 asus(ddr2), 700w power sypply. He did 15980 mark on 3dmar 06, the card run better on is system.



    With my system, the card did many noise on the supply connector of the 4870x2.

    Please help, and excuse me for my english.

    Ps : i test the 8.10 et 8.11 béta, the overdrive was locked.

    So what are you asking here? Why his system is better then yours? That is only a few 100 points, maybe he has better ram timings or something else better then your build

    And newer drivers is also not always better, maybe you should test some older ones.

    If your PSU is making noises I would advise you upgrade it now and do not use the system until you get a new PSu or you might fry your board.
