Was just curious about this since I was doing soem stress test on two graphics cards I got here. Both at MSI Aero ITX 1060 6GB cards. In the system I was using your bench, it seems they both produce some form of coil whine. Reading online it seems to be a fairly common occurrence, but having two cards produce the same amount of whine is leading me to believe it could possibly be the PSU. I'll list the completed build here, and was wondering if anyone has any experience with the seasonic PSU that I have, and have they ran into the same problem? I'm not the one who's going to be using the PC primarily, and it will be mostly used with CAD and design tools, and running some tests on those seems to have no issue with GPU, only occasional noises when undergoing heavy load.
