GTX580 Coil Whine

My GTX580 has just started making a really annoying buzzing under load, after about 6 months of being silent (it's definitely the GPU, and definitely not fans).

This recording sounds exactly like it (starts about 20 seconds in):

I'm pretty sure it's coil whine, and if so, is this bad for the card and why would it just randomly start happening?

Thanks very much in advance :)

  1. i take it you have already blown the dust out of it and made sure there weren't any simple issues like that.

    if the gpu is definitely making a buzzing noise (and its not your psu or other device) then i'd be contacting the manufacturer to ask them about it. personally i would be wanting a repair or replacement since it most likey is well within warranty.
