    Default ga-eg45m-ds2h, loud sounds near socket

    i have the g45 board from gb, ga-eg45m-ds2h

    and it is really loud when i stress my system out (cpu, ram), and i isolated the sound and found out its coming from the cpu socket area of the board, the board is OC'd but not to the extreme, i upped the vcore, mch and ram. the sound is like a sizzling sound that comes from something burning, or a whine.

    what could i do? i went to support but only option it gave me was to ask a question, is that where i need to go?

    forgot to mention, everything is updated, and vcore is at 1.325-1.38, it somewhat droops a little, mch is at 1.3v (only +.1) and ram is at 1.9v, so its not a crazy overclock.

    EDIT: read that there is no RMA discussion so i took that out, what am i left to do?

    Have you checked to be sure all connections are tight? Reseated your CPU?

    And your sure it is not your PSU? Just checking

    Sizzling and Whining is a very different sound, which is it? Can you post a audio clip of it for us to hear? That would be great

    Does it still make this sound at stock? Stressed of course

    You can talk about RMA, that sticky is a year old and only was posted because of a HUGE RMA issue.

    You can RMA your board for sure if you want, let me know if you need the RMA page

    That sound should came from one or more ferrite coils of the FET phase voltage regulator.
    That will not harm your CPU at all, it makes just that weird switching noise. That is a fault of its epoxy encapsulation.
    But, as Lsdmeasap correctly suggested, you can RMA the board, absolutely.

    yea I just rebuilt the system inlcuding reseating the CPU.

    I found out it was the board by using a pipe near my ear and scanning the whole system, and no nothing was coming from the psu, that was my first impression.

    it's more of a sizzling sound but it sometimes makes a little whistling noise like a tea kettle when it's boiling.

    at stock it doesn't make the sound but only when OCd or when voltages highered, gets louder with more fsb and volts.


    and sure a link for RMA would be great thanks

    EDIT: found RMA page and well they are very close to me, like 10 mins away lol, can i just drop it off? or is shipping required.

    talked to cs and they told me that i can just drop off my RMA at their warehouse, but that i would have to get the RMA number from the site. they also said i wouldnt be able to get the motherboard at the same time but that they would ship it out to me.
