This follow-up on this question, I found out using MSI AfterBurner, that when I use regular programs like Firefox, Chrome Photoshop and more that the Core Clock goes up to 1924(!!!) which is way over what the GPU specs says. (The 1924MHz is the only case where I get HUGE buzzing sound)

(This question is about the core clock going high when idle instead of low, not about the noise)

This is the situation:

  • After restart the core clock goes back to 1590~.
  • After opening some program (not games or stress-test) the core clockgoes to 1924 which result in buzzing.
  • After closing previous program the core clock goes back to 1590~.
  • If there is no program running and I open a game or stress-test the core clock goes to 1820~ like the specs says (NO BUZZING).
  • If some program is open and the core clock is at 1924, and I open a game or stress-test, the core clock goes to 1820~, and after closing the test or game the clock goes back to 1924 and the buzzing continues!

I checked everything I can to test it and it seem like something is going on with the GPU, I mean, it literally goes overboard with the clock speed for NO reason. I checked if there is some program that use's the GPU and nothing did...

EDIT: The "Buzzing" sound I mentioned is called "Coil Whine" as the previous question says.

UPDATE!: I found out that after I restart the computer and opening one of the programs that caused the high core clock & "Coil Whine", (RIGHT AFTER RESTART) the core clock speed DROPS to 240Mhz! I don't know if it is normal or not :\

  • @Ramhound it is not the case, you can see the other question as well. and it is not only AfterBurner, I checked on other programs –

  • @Ramhound So how come the buzzing noise only come when the clock is at 1924? I didn't overclock the card.. I didn't touch anything of that sort.

  • @Ramhound The sound is not from the fan, the fan is at 32%.. the buzzing is something called "Coil Whine", and for me it only happens when the clock is at 1924 which is when I use regular program

  • @Ramhound I did not "accidently overclocked" it believe me. I checked. The site say's what the "default overclock" is, and it is above that.
