Default Re: GTX 280 screeching...

I found this thread because my system started screeching too after I installed my GTX 280.

I posted about this on the EVGA forums as well here:;�

I'll cut to the chase, as it turns out that in my case it's my PSU that is actually screeching and not the GTX 280.

For reference, system specs are as follows:

Asus P5E
Q9450 @ 3.4GHz (w/ TRUE 120)
4GB (2x 2GB) G. Skill DDR1000 @ 1020MHz
EVGA GTX 280 (stock clocks)
SB X-Fi XtremeMusic
2 x 200GB WD HD (RAID 0)
1 x 300GB WD HD
PCP&C 750 Silencer
4 x Antec 120mm fans

There is actually another guy on the EVGA forums that has the same PSU as I do, and it exhibiting the same screeching noise.
Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H | Intel Core i5-4670K @ 4.0GHz | Phanteks PH-TC14PE | 16GB Kingston DDR3 1600
Zotac GTX 770 @ 1200/3700 | Kingston V300 120GB SSD | HGST 2.5" 750GB & 500GB RAID 1 | Corsair AX850
Lian Li PC-7A | Win 8.1 Pro | Deck Legend Blue | Logitech G500s | NEC PA271W
