    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 this one?

    3080ti - Unbearable coil whine through speakers

    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 troubleshooting I thank you for your time and I'll see ya on...

    3080ti - Unbearable coil whine through speakers

    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 right bud

    3080ti - Unbearable coil whine through speakers

    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 replacing it the first time but I'll admit I'm...

    3080ti - Unbearable coil whine through speakers

    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

    3080ti - Unbearable coil whine through speakers

    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 hooking speakers up to the system. I wouldn't...

    3080ti - Unbearable coil whine through speakers

    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.

    3080ti - Unbearable coil whine through speakers

    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 anything. So something went wrong/failed. Unfortunately...

    Yup, sure did.

    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 tomorrow.

    3080ti - Unbearable coil whine through speakers

    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 but it's harder to capture with the pump and fans...

    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.

    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.

    3080ti - Unbearable coil whine through speakers

    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 straight into the wall, no change. It must be poor...

    3080ti - Unbearable coil whine through speakers

    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 that. It seems to be tied to the overall load on the...
