I have been running my Red Devil 5700XT now since Saturday morning and so far I am very impressed. Coming from the RTX 2060 its definitely a huge step up. Now, as far as issues go I have had no BSOD's, no issues in gaming (so far Overwatch, WOW Classic. Metro Exodus, D3) but . .

 

Now this is an odd one . . .

 

My Red Devil is making a slight noise when moving the mouse!?!? Noticed it last night when browsing, no other noise. When I scrolled up and down with the wheel there is a very slight, well coil noise I guess , like a tiny person is whispering "hushhhh" is the only way to describe it. It's VERY quiet though . . .

 

So I stripped my rig, right down to just the GFX card and bare essentials, still did it. Tried my old 2060 back in the system, no noise. So I put the Red Devil back in and loaded up in Safe Mode with networking, noise has gone. Back to normal Win 10 & noise is back. Also tried it in safe mode with Network Enabled, no noise.

 

On Win 10, fully updated. Fresh install of Windows. All other drivers manufacturer latest. No other issues with rig.

 

Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this?
