GeForce 8800GT weird noise

Hi all,

System configuration : i7 / Assus P6X58D and an Antec EA 750 W / Antec 183P

A friend gave me a Geforce 8800 GT but when I plugged it in there is a weird noise (very strong sharp noise) and I am reading on the forum that the noise is coming from the Power Supply - I really do not believe this because it is a 750 W or really ?! how much do I need to 8800 ?

I connected the 8-pin EPS 12V and not 4-pin ATX 12V should I go different, am I doing something wrong ?

Thanks,
Dan

I am pretty sure you connect a 6-pin.

6-pin & 8-pin Supplementary Power Connectors were used depending on make and model. Most were 6-pin.

The high-pitched squeal is usually the result of the manufacturer using cheap non-shielded chokes and capacitors.

What is the amperage rating of the 12 Volt rail(s) of your power supply?

Some models of this card including others but rather rare these days have a small button speaker that makes a very loud noise when the 6pin power connector isn't plugged in. You have to connect this cable into the connector or you are out of a working card.

The ones with the little piezo speaker that sounds like a police or ambulance siren when you forgot to plug in the supplementary power connector.

The power cord PCI-E was the problem, I've changed it and everything works fine.

Thanks for the answers!
