RX 6700 XT buzzing noise when radeon in-game overlay opened

While i play any game in fullscreen mode if i enable Radeon in-game overlay or metrics overlay to see temps or use Radeon options. my RX 6700 XT starts to make a weird noise that not sounds like normal coil whine. The sensors are normally always active so i don't know why showing the sensors information or just opening the radon software makes the GPU produce noise. (If i close Radeon overlay or disable the metrics overlay the GPU don't make any noise). Can it be an hardware fault or maybe drivers? i'm reallly worried about it.

Test if it comes from speakers. Then you just have a poorly shielded sound card on your motherboard. If you can plug speakers to monitor or output sound in digital format (SPDIF/USB) so D/A conversion happens outside PC case, you get rid of it.

But that is nothing to worry about. When I had a cheap motherboard, I could hear a sound every time I moved mouse over deskto and whenever something was read or written to disk.


Even if it comes from hardware itself, it is not dangerous, just annoying.

I did notice buzzing sound when I open radeon software before and on high gpu usage but I dont even hear it now because my case fans and cpu cooler spin on max rpm and pc work good 8 months.


so it's not only happening to me. My old RX 570 never did this kind of sound even at max usage that's why i was worrried about this noise on my new GPU

its happen to me too, i am use rx 6600 from msi mech, and when i want to show the overlay in any games, the gpu starts to coil whine until i close the overlay and i don't hear the coil whine again. my driver now 22.5.1
