I bought reference design RX 5700 (non XT) and it is very nice card. However at some speed I can hear whine/high pitch annoying sound (especially when the blower fan is speeding up/slowing down). I guess it is from motor of the fan. Even at idle (23% fan speed) I can hear it slightly. Anyone else has this problem?
It is ASRock RX 5700 reference card. I have tried 2 of them and both have same issue with whine. It is not very strong noise, but I can hear it.
A couple of Users have opened thread concerning the RX5700 making noises also.
Rx 5700 xt weird buzzing/clicking and game performance
In one of the link it mentions that it seems to be related to a certain AMD Driver.
Thanks but my sound issue is different. Not static noise, but whine - some PS4 Pros with Delta fan whine this way (but my is a lot more weaker). Weird thing is on load I can hear air moving (normal) and not this high pitch noise. I played with fan speed and the sound is most intensive between 65-70% fan speed. In games fan speed is about 38%, so no high pitch noise. At low speed (idle 23%) I can hear it faintly.
If you are definite the sound is from the GPU fan motor, Then try cleaning it as best as possible and see if it helps.
Otherwise, I would suggest to open a ASRock Warranty Ticket to see if the GPU card needs to be RMAed or the fan can be replaced under Warranty.
I'm not 100% sure it's the motor. Weird thing is I have tried 2 cards and both have it.
