Hi guys i have one of the above cards and im not sure if its all ok. When i am running windows, webpages basicly anything 2D its seems fine, sounds like a normal gfx card. (Fan noise thats it) When i load anything 3D lets say google earth or Call of Duty 4 it starts making a noise like a Mosquito, buzzing or whining. Its not too loud but loud enough for me to thnik it shouldn't be happening. I have both 6 pins power cords plugged in 1 of which is modular
Also when i power my pc up the card is not always found it only find the standard GFX adapter untill i open the case up check the power connectors and reboot it works fine
Here is what im running
Vista 32 bit home basic
Asus P5N - T Deluxe 780i
4 gig Patriot ddr2 pc6400
Freezer 7 pro cpu cooler
OCz mod X stream 780 Watt PSU
Antec 900 Case
All latest drivers and bios nothing overclocked
BFG seem to think it may be faulty but i just wanna know what u think or if anyone else has had a similar problem with a 260 GTX card
Hi , no i didnt ever get it fixed. It is what happens when the cards get such a high overclock. i even changed brands to the XFX gtx XXX and have the same noise. i just play my games with head phoens on now and i cant hear it
PS down load the latest nvidia beta drivers they got some really good improvments in em

When I spoke to scan I got the same "its capacitor and transistor coil resination" speech. Infact they want my replacement card back as they believe it is also faulty. Unfortunatly as mine is the H2OC variety this is a bit of a pain in the bum to say the least. Have you tried downclocking the card at all?
I assume your noise also comes from the PSU, and changes pitch?
