I’ve run a few programs that do that. It’s usually a sloppy bit of code that requests the best possible refresh rate from the graphics hardware – more than the display needs. The whine you hear is probably the power regulation chips “sympathetically” screaming about the graphics refreshing internally at such an insane rate. It’s generally not harmful.[/quote]
That would be your graphics card rendering at like 1200 fps. Use a frame limiter software to prevent overheating if you have inadequate cooling.[/quote]
Oh good, it’s not just me. I tried this the day after installing a new graphics card and went on a fear induced googling spree.
