    Default Gigabyte whine, is it HDD Realted

    I never really noticed i had the whine till it went away !! But i am sure it has to do with the HDD

    I have a main SATA drive and an older 19 GB IDE drive, i now set windows to switch off the drives after 20 mins and the whine is gone, however when the IDE fires up again not only can i hear it's natural whine but the ud3r MB whine is there

    The MB whine comes and goes, sometimes on boot it is not there and if the IDE powers down all is fine but as soon as the IDE spins up with usage the MB whine returns

    The HDD whine is a contunual high pitches whine the MB whine is more a nagging fast fluctuation whine ( married men will understand)

    its mostly the power saving modes on the mb/chip,if you disable c1e and use balanced power saving profile in win7 it stops the noise,or minimum hardare setting in winxp power saving,it can be any component that causes it,either psu/gpu/hdd its emi(electro magnetic interference) caused by either drivers or components,makesure you route your front panel audio wire well away from the gpu aswell,that helps to reduce the noise alot and using latest mb bios and mb/gpu drivers help

    It is more about the settings you are using, and what PSU as some PSU always have it and others never have it.
