    Asus GL504GV weird noise when I'm in game

    I bought new ASUS Scar II laptop yesterday, just finished installing everything.

    When I open a game, I start hearing weird noise. It stops if I unplug the charger.
    I recorded the noise, it starts around 00:05 of this file. Here it is: https://www105.zippyshare.com/v/MV4NcLnI/file.html

    Can you please help me with this? Is this a major issue with my laptop?

    Thanks!

    Sounds like coil whine. That's normal.

    I found some solutions online so far. Is it worth messing with this or should I just live with the noise?

    Solution 1:

    put the CPU maximum performance to 99% inside windows 10 control panel

    Cons: people say this disables the turbo boost


    Solution 2:

    At command prompt, run the following command: reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Processor /v Capabilities /t REG_DWORD /d 0x0007e066

    Restart the computer

    Run ThrottleStop v8.3 or above and check "Speed Shift - EEP" . Then click save. Use value of 80 for both performance and power saving (using 0 will make your cpu always run at max clock, that generates heat). Then reboot again, if you still hear coil whine or, shut down your computer and turn it on again.

    If the noise doesn't bother you, don't try to fix it. Messing with those settings will make your CPU run hotter and consume more power, or cripple its performance by disabling boost. Limiting the CPU max perf. to 99% will indeed disable turbo boost. Those are not solutions and they don't really fix the problem. They just make it less noticeable.
    Only way to really fix this would be to redesign the motherboard and/or use different components. They call it coil whine but sometimes it comes from the vrm's switching. It's a physical, not software level issue.

    Ok, I can live with the noise, I was just really worried that it will affect my laptop's lifespan or maybe cause issues over time.
    Just the noise isn't that bad I guess

    Thank you for clarifying!

    i use throttlestop to undervolt my cpu and a side effect of it is that it removes my coil whine
