    Default Gigabyte GA-EX58 UD5 coil noise

    Hi everybody.
    I have a small problem with my motherboard.
    Is not that bad actually,but i hope i'll find a solution here.
    I have a annoying "coile noise" when i'm browsing some internet sites,yahoo messenger and few applications / programs.
    I found the way how to fix this : i disabled in BIOS the " CPU ENHANCED HALT ( C1E)" My CPU is Intel 7 920. This option just reduce the power consumption.
    Now is everithing quiet,but i thought i better leave this option enabled,but when i enable it ,the noise appear again. It sound like a coil noise,it's hard to explain.
    Do you have any idea,guys , how could i fix this annoying noise,if i enable again "CPU ENHANCED HALT ( C1E ) ??
    Has something to do with the voltage .... or whatever ?
    I updated the BIOS,latest version,F6 .
    If anybody had an idea,please help me,i would like to leave enable this CPU option.
    Thanks in advance.
    PS: I contacted Intel -support,about my problem,and they said "please contact your motherboard manufacturer"

    I had the same problem on my old motherboard, when i was scrolling with the mouse, in 3D gaming, at full load.. I took it into my friends PC shop, he had no idea what it was..

    I was painting my apartment that summer, and rearranged my room. I carried the computer from one end to the other, and I could hear a screw fall down the chassis of the case. I booted the PC, and voila, no more whine. Make sure nothing is shorting against your case.

    If the noise is coming from the board itself, I would recommend an RMA. Vibration and buzzing/screeching can happen with all electronics, especially components involved in power transformation.

    I had a Hyper PSU that screeched like a banshee, so had it replaced and all was well.

    If the sound is coming through speakers/headphones then it's probably interferance picked up by the onboard audio.

    I've yet to own a motherboard which didn't have strange squeeling/squeaking audio. This happens on my current UD3P, my previous MSI NForce4, The Packard Bell mobo this PC was originally running on, all chips manufactured by Realtek, from AC97 to HD880 and HD885, (supposedly a premium audio codec). Noise happens when I scroll web pages with the mouse wheel, and is especially bad in WoW, where the noise is constant.

    The only solution I've found is to buy a good quality, shielded soundcard.
