High pitched whining sound from new EVGA GeForce GTX750 1G

I just installed my new EVGA GeForce GTX750 1G G-Sync video card and it works great, but I'm getting a really high pitched whining sound from it.

I know the older versions of this card had noisy fans but this one is quiet except for this high pitched noise. I saw threads in the EVGA forum for similar problems on other EVGA cards.

I think I'm going to return it but would like to know what is an equivalent card for a similar price. I paid $102 for it and I now see it for $109 so something in that price range would be great.

I'm not a gamer, just wanted a decent video card with a DVI output so I could use my DVI KVM switch with my two Desktop computers.

Back in 2007 I had a noisy fan in a brand new desktop. And (after considerable angst) the source was the NVIDIA GeForce graphics card. Turned out there was a white wire touching the GeForce fan under the card, and that was the source of the noise. I moved the wire and restarted the machine. It was totally quiet. Perhaps a quick look at your fan to make sure nothing is touching it?

I'll look again but I'm not the only one having he problem. Suspicion is it's a coil humming (reluctance).

Looking for a recommendation for a replacement card, similar capabilities and price. As I said originally, I'm not a gamer.

Coil Whine sucks. If you have any small children, dogs, or cats, sometimes it can be worse for them. Sometimes it's so high pitched, it's just outside the range of adult hearing, but children can gear it, and sometimes it can cause them headaches or discomfort.

RMA it, coil while can be a sign of bad manufacturing. Some companies will give you a hard time. It's very difficult for a company to argue against exchanging a product causing children headaches or discomfort though. ;)

Got it through Amazon so will RMA it and try another, see what happens.

I am going to look it over closely first though.
