    Coil Whine on Nvidia 4090 and 4080 cards

    Just got my MSI 4090 Gaming X and it has insane coil whine.

    UPS for a moderately high power system?

    I have a 1500VA APC with a 4090, 2x27” 1x34” OLED and it doesn’t trip

    ATX 3.0 PCIe 5.0 standard include higher excursion loads for the standard PCIe gpu connectors?

    I’ve not yet seen an ATX 3.0 where The 12VHPWR connector is operating on a dedicated 12v rail so the transient spikes, which is what I assume you’re referring to, should be tolerated equally well using the 8 pin PCIe connectors.

    Worth upgrading to a ATX 3.0 PS for NvidaRTX4000 series or use what you have?

    Im not suggesting to buy an 800 water. If you know you’re going to buy something I’d buy more than what you think you need. But if you’re wondering if what you have will work. That’s a very easy thing to figure out. Try it and find out. If you’re too apprehensive to give it a go then this...

    Worth upgrading to a ATX 3.0 PS for NvidaRTX4000 series or use what you have?

    I would do what I already did... Run what I have and go from there. I was going to order a Seasonic Vertex GX-1200 along with my 4090. Thankfully it was on back-order and I just checked out with the 4090. It's been running perfectly fine on my 750 eVGA Supernova and I saved myself about $300...

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    Yeah I’m not worried about it. Just didn’t expect to see it. I did notice there was virtually no new textures popping in with the 4090. Distant textures would get more detailed the closer you get vs full on buildings appearing in the distance the closer you get with a 10GB buffer.

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    Three hour War Zone BR session while also on video chat with my squad, no problems at all. Even alt+tabbed a couple times which I guess is what can cause those transient spikes. I was surprised to see around 88% VRAM utilization. I know lots of modern games like to cash as much assets as...

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    It’s pushing right up to its 450 watt tdp in furmark so, it isn’t starved. Stronger psus don’t increase performance. Doesn’t work that way. If you’re over drawing it just shuts off. It’s been very widely reported and tested that you can run as low as 55% power limit and still retain 90%...

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    Alright gents and ladies if there are any... Verdict is in... Received the card today. The thing is gigantic compared to my 3080. Photo attached, that 3080 was pulled out of an Alienware desktop. I actually had to remove one of the two intake fans on the front of my case to get it to fit. I...

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    Are you referring to power spikes when you say 600 watts? Because 4090 has a 450 watt TDP

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    no I get it. I’m agreeing with you. im Pointing out that it’s even more unbalanced than it seems with the way he has it tuned. He has it over volted so it’s just wasting power even while not hitting power limits.

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    Nah you’ll just trip OCP and system shuts down but understandable to be apprehensive about a nearly 2 grand card.

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    An over-clocked, over volted and raised power target 4090 no less. But good to know a 750 was able to handle it

    Anyone running a 4090 on sub 1KW PSU?

    Have you tried running them at 100% or assuming it wouldn’t handle the load? Lots of people over estimate power usage, transient spikes aside.

    The rumored RTX 4090Ti/TITAN

    6 months ago I installed a NEMA 14-50 outlet backed by a 50a dedicated breaker in my garage for EV charging. Should've had the electricians run one to my office as well.
