When I open games my card makes a hissing sound almost like a transformer or something. Whats up with that?

Two places you commonly hear it is at really high fps, eg: game main menu's or under heavy load, eg: furmark/msi kombustor. I usually use vsync to minimize the noise at high fps, as for when the card is under load there isn't much that can be done. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
