What Is Coil Whine and How Can It Be Fixed?


Modern computers are not only very powerful, but also extremely user-friendly. For example, they are expected to make as little noise as possible. Every now and then, however, problems occur that lead to noise and leave the user unnerved and frustrated. The so-called coil beeping is particularly disturbing and at the same time little known.

The energy flowing through the coil causes the wiring to vibrate at irregular intervals, resulting in a particularly unpleasant and therefore conspicuous noise. In addition, coil beeping occurs to a certain...
