Default Please -- How to get rid of mosquito noise/coil whine?

I have a REALLY bad case of this since upgrading to a new video card, but only from my studio monitor speakers.. no effect on my headphones.

HOW can I get rid of this noise? It is unbearable. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Is this noise coming from your power supply? What video card and power supply do you have?

Not too sure. I've always had it slightly, but since getting a new video card it is very pronounced. It never comes out of my headphones though. My video card is a Zotac 570 AMP! and my power supply is an OCZ Fatality.

Also, it's only noticeable when the cpu or video card is under heavy stress. Not sure which one exactly.

Which model number of power supply? Most likely its not powerful enough to push your video card.

They sent me a replacement for my original one, which was this:

They said the newer one was at least as powerful as this one. I figure 700W should be plenty? I'm only running one video card.

Need to know what the new model number is. Just them telling you that the replacement is stronger then the original doesn't mean anything. The 700 watt unit you linked to would suffice for you card but that doesn't mean the new one will. Get us the model number so we can verify its specs.

For the most part, it seems like its a decent unit. However, I would get it replaced again.... This time get a corsair tx650 or similar.

Are you sure it is the PSU that is causing it? Prior to getting my new video card(very recently), I had very very light coil whine. Do you think that since I got a more powerful video card that this unit is causing the coil whine?

I would just want to be sure before I sent this back in again.
