Guys, my 2 weeks old gigabyte 7970 ghz edition is making rattling noise. Is this a known fact or a defect considering it has 3 fans? I mean really right, it's not supposed to make rattling noise right?

hmm... that's odd but what i meant was it's a issue for somebody that doesn't want it when they pay hundreds of dollars i know it doesn't hinder performance though and you and your mates must have bad luck none of my friends 680 do it my 670's don't do it though i know it's possible for that to happen with any card Gigabyte especially.

coil whine isn't harmfull or anything and lot of manufactures think it isn't a defect and dont do RMAs because of it. It gets annoying if it's loud though....

Very true i wouldn't put up with it considering the cost of the card i tell the manufacture off and troll them with daily calls lol until they exchanged it but your right it doesn't hurt it's performance :)
