    Superjoe replied to the thread X4: Foundations.
    Anybody actively playing this game? I'd like to try it since it is on sale right now but these games always launch in such a shit state I never bothered with X4. Most of the feedback seems positive on Steam but what are the [H]ard thoughts on...

    Thanks Silentbob. Look, as far as I can tell there's no more technical information to be gleaned from this thread. I'm going to put it to bed before it becomes anything else. For those that had constructive inputs to add while I was...
  • S
    No, I took it upon myself to source an additional video card to troubleshoot it to an absolute certainty before sending it back again to avoid wasting my time and theirs. Now that I know I'm taking them up on their offer. But whatever, you're...
  • S
    Sure I agree. If it was just the whine I hear at the card I wouldn't have even bothered RMA'ing it. But in this case it's not just coil whine. It's whatever is causing the noise to bleed through the speakers. I don't totally fault them for not...

    How TF is applying for an RMA with an in-warranty component and not getting it "making the process difficult"? Especially when I provided multiple video clips to prove it in the first place? Fuck off
  • S
    I did send them a slightly bitchy message after getting the card back last time asking what their “testing” involved and how another component in my system could cause coil whine in the video card: So they do test it, but I'm sure they're not...

    Well I can finally confirm with absolute certainty it is indeed the video card. I bought a 3060ti off the forums here to have something else to throw in and the audio issue is gone. Hallelujah, now I just have to get EVGA to RMA the 3080ti.
  • S
    I appreciate the input, but I think most people here are missing part of the point. I totally understand EMI and interference with an analog audio signal. This system worked for ~6 months until the noise started. Without moving or changing...

    I'm old and not so [H]ard anymore. I see drained and think something is mistyped. Checks make/model and sees Hydro. ah ha.🌊 🚰
  • S
    Yup, sure did.
  • S
    Yeah, tried another set of speakers. Same issue. Even if it weren't bleeding through the speakers like it is, the whine from the card itself is pretty obnoxious. EVGA support started an RMA for me so I'm going to get it drained and shipped out...
  • S
    Alright, here's a vid demonstrating the sound leakage. I always keep my speakers set to 50% and use the system volume slider to adjust from there. None of this noise was present a week ago. I tried to film the noise coming from the card itself...

    Will do, it’s certainly one of the stranger issues I’ve had to troubleshoot. I’ve got to make a video later when I get home to share with EVGA support so I’ll link it here too.
  • S
    But the card is definitely making noise under load that it wasn't making a week ago. I've started a discussion with EVGA to see what they suggest, but I'll probably end up RMA'ing it.
  • S
    Okay, I swapped the new mobo for an identical replacement and the issue is the same. Tried a new power supply, no change. Tried ground loop isolators on my 3.5mm cables, no change. Took the computer power off the surge protector and ran it...

    Turning off ReBar didn't make a difference. I set the BIOS back to defaults to make sure it wasn't anything I did in there. Been reading that sometimes this can be solved by disabling C-states or spread spectrum tuning but I still have to try...
  • S
    After posting I remembered that my video card has two BIOS’ so I switched over to the other one that hadn’t been updated and the issue persists, so I’m inclined to attribute this issue to the new motherboard. I searched a bit more on the net and...

    I've had an EVGA 3080ti Hydro Copper for several months now. I've noticed slight coil whine from it before but faint enough that anything covers it up and not really an issue, nothing I haven't heard from a GPU before. However, this week I...
