    whenever a x800gto card goes into 3d mode there is a high pitched noise
    coming form the video card pcb...in 3dmark in cpu tests, it also emmits
    a chirping sounds, almost like hdd, but higher...it makes noise
    synchronized with the framerate...the only time it stops is when i lower
    the core clock form default 400 to 300 or lower...what can that noise be
    coming from...the card is brand new, and works apart from the saound
    issue, without any problems...also i have tried a different motherboard
    and a different PSU

    tnx for the tips

    Whatever that is, it doesn't sound right. If the card is brand new, take it
    back and exchange it for another one. Don't bother trying to mess with

    yeah thanks...it is probably something that regulates the power to the
    core, since it dissapears when i downclock

    Turn off your speakers ... all the way OFF. Good speakers
    can pick up that card squeal. I think there's something on the
    web about it. If that is it, post on the Far Cry disscussion
    board in the Tech section. I read about it there last year.
