I've had this card since a few months after the 6990 line was released. It seems to have some sort of high pitched static noise that gets louder depending on the load on the GPU. The noise only happens on certain games (skyrim and rage are fine but space marine or amalur demo are not for example). The noise goes away when vsync is turned on. The card itself seems to work fine too and I've had no issues other than the usual high temp/high fan noise thing. Anyone else having this issue?

This is not a question for this forum. It should be posted in the XFX forum.

It's probably the old thing called Harmonic Distortion or commonly known as capacitor / coil whine/hum.
