High demanding games such as BF4, CoD, Watch Dogs ect run fine. When I actually start a game. the GPU starts to make a loud, buzzing sound. It is not coil whine and I know it is the GPU too as I had a similar rig with the same GPU and I had the same problem. Any help/solutions or even a 'diagnosis' would be appreciated.

Can you also find a video on youtube or anywhere that best matches the sound you are hearing ?

Or you can upload a video of yours with the sound you are refering to, and point the link.

Thanks.
