Default Re: GTX 280 screeching...

Ok, so if it is an inductor, the sound is pretty bad, and it happens in every game I've tested. I don't understand why it wouldn't happen in a different PC with similar specs. Is there any way to fix it? or make it less noticeable? My PC is pretty loud as is with all the fans, and I can still hear the screeching above all that, even with my headset on. Not something I can ignore or get used to. Normally I'd just RMA the card, but since its having no problems in the other system I don't have much confidence that it would fix it. This is in a friend's PC btw, so it's not like I can use the P35 24/7.
