well i changed my psu to a corsair hx 1000 and the squealing has noticeably dropped...however there is STILL some squealing coming from my case, which leads me to assume that it is something with the graphics card.

its either the gfx card or psu and i am now inclined to think the former (because the psu is brand new)

now i have read somewhere that there is a nail polish trick in applying to some parts on the card?

Does this work with an XFX hd 4890 and if it does where would i need to apply the polish?

I am working with a 3d program all day so it kind of irritates me alot

thanks

This. I had a massive problem with squeal with my gtx 280, after RMAing the PSU and gfx card multiple times i got a combination that worked. its luck of the draw

well i have fiddled around with my card until the point i think its actually died...oh dear,

the computer isnt evening posting now and i am scratching my head as to what it could be....probably best not to play around with graphics cards innards if you dont know what you are up to eh?
