Default Re: GTX 280 screeching...

This issue is common with high end cards, and will continue to become more prevalent as cards use more and more power. Some people can notice this squeal, others cannot.

Capacitors under heavy load will make the squealing sound mentioned. Most of the time, its just an aesthetics issue. Other times it can be a sign of a failing capacitor (and card, as a result).
