    Recently, ive been playing games such as GTA 5 and the Witcher 3 and my gpu handled it very well. Earlier today i was playing and i minimized gta 5 for a while. When i came back i opened it and my gpu started making a weird noise. I closed gta 5 and waited for my gpu to cool down and i opened gta 5 back up. the fans werent on but the noise was still there. There wasent any lag or difference in the game, it ran well but im worried that my gpu is dying. This computer is pretty new.
    i have an AMD Radeon rx 580 card

    Have you turned pc off and back on to see if noise is still there? Listen to see where noise is coming from.

    Google gpu coil whine and see if the sound is comparable. Do you have a good enough psu to push that card? What exact model psu do you have?

    not sure. My computer is pre built and it dosent seem to have a brand. Computer was made by Cyberpowerpc
    and yes it does sound kind of like coil whine but also sounds like a small rc car engine but it sounds very similar to coil whine.
