    NEW PICS: )
    my temps were idling at around 65, so i took off the huge plastic thing and used zip ties to stick a fan to it
    temps have been reduced around 10c

    not too sure about if it should be pushing air into the heatsink or pulling

    the plasting 'thing' ....yeah i know...pointless pic....

    Me being a genius, decided to wash my old 6800 GT with hot water once koz the fan and sink were too dusty to try to clean otherwise. Needless to say, the card wouldn't work afterwards, even after 20 mins with my hairdryer. I had never heard of that trick then, but desperate to get it back I tossed it in the oven too. MIRACLE!

    its not really an "oven trick", you do the same thing with your xbox when you get the red ring of death, except you dont stick it in an oven, you put it under 5 pillows and let it overheat, ofcourse that temporarily fixes the problem, i do believe when a graphics card over heats its circuit breaks, thats why it wont work, and when you heat it all up, the whole circuit breaks i guess, providing a temporary fix, it'll last you for a week, maybe, or maybe youll get lucky and it'll last you much longer, not quite sure since its never been done with a graphics card :P

    it kinda sounds like when you open a coke can just a tiny bit
    No need to worry about it.

    inductor coils, power section FETs, high speed memory access, and clock speed

    are the cause of the noise, i suppose we are still young enough to hear those sounds, and not everyone can hear those

    I asked a friend of mine and he didn't hear nothing i suppose his ears don't hear high pitched noise.

    yeah i think thats it, it only seems to happen when the gpu is under stress ( even a .avi ), sounds like the inductor coil

    peeling onions in my submarine...
    sounds like normal operation to me (for what I can here from my all digital yet still suffering RF set up)

    I have to put up with thoes noises all day threw my speakers just now and a ground loop isolator will just cap the high `n low frequency responce... feel like putting my hi-fi in the oven #Chuckles#

    my first GTX280 had a really noisey coil in it.... squeal piggy squeal! #Laughs#

    did you use any seasoning?
    maybe a few veg as a side dish?

    is the 88GTX considerd to be a delicacy...

    I have heard that painting the coils with clear nail polish will cease the squealing and does not restrict the circuitry in any way, shape, or form. I suppose you could use colored as well, if you wanna get fancy.

    Lol. I wash all pc components under warm running water from time to time, even the PSU. It was also good to clean the pcb of my latest video card that I drilled through to make sure there was no metal dust on it.

    Isopropyl alcohol would probably be a better choice, but if you really know what you're doing I guess water could work.

    Too risky for me!


    You drilled through your gfx card? Can you explain more?

    are you putting it in the oven with back of the card facing down? or the front(gpu side) down?
