    ROG G731GU Coil whine.

    Hello there! Pretty much as the title says it... I have this laptop for about 3-4 months, and this annoying low frequency sound started like a month ago. After reading a bit on the internet im pretty sure that it is coil whine, its coming from the WASD area of the laptop and it is annoying af. I sent the laptop to a repair center and after 2 weeks they returned It to me with changed fans and motherboard, and guess what... this little annoying sound is still there! It is there no matter if the laptop is plugged in or not, I also have the latest version of bios - 307. Any ideas how to proceed from now , should I just send It again and spam asus support with emails or what is the best option to do?

    You have already done what would have been suggested to do, return laptop for repair.

    I believe the only recourse you now have, is demand your money back.

    Good Luck

    I have the G731GV and I also have the coil whine (nonstop).
    I run the laptop in silent mode to reduce it so that I don't hear it anymore (unless I put my ears over the keyboard). In Performance/Turbo, it is loud. The faster the CPU, and the more the turbo is active, the higher the coil whine.

    I put my ears over the Alienware 17R2 that I have and I also hear it but it's very faint. My wife's Dell laptop also has it but also very faint.
    This and MSI laptops have it loud.

    It's not only loud and annoying in perf/turbo mode, there's also a crackling sound.

    Sometimes, the coil whine goes away though. I am unsure of the cause.
