    Coil whine is caused by weak PWM, it has to be replaced to be rid of.
    It won't cause other issues in the mean time so it is safe to use.
    You can also try reducing GPU frequency to see if the noise can be silenced or not.

    Can anyone please try this :) ?
    1)if you have DDR-4 RAM make a RAMdisk and show us numbers for read and write speeds (I'm interested in comparing those to NVMe ssds)
    2)find fastest SD card you have (UHS-III anyone :D ?) and run Crystal Disk Mark or something similar so we will know speeds for SD card reader

    Thanks

    I found a sleeve that works really well, so I wanted to post it so others know about it.

    I'm really regretting not buying this laptop from XoticPC or GenTechPC. I'm not having any luck installing Windows 7 on this thing. I cannot get the Win7 install to recognize the NVME SSD.

    I think that first you have to manage the partition in windows (if you still have windows installed go to search->create and format disk partitions. If not first install windows somewhere). There you should find "unlocated" disk - your NVME SSD. Make it a partition. Then try to install windows again as you want. Don't forget to format disk with windows (otherwise you are creating dual boot :) ) . I think you will see the drive then ;) .

    PS. Reading that you are trying to instal windows 7 made me thing that it might be unsupported drivers or maybe hardware/software issue with msi-windows-SSD. I'm just guessing.

    I DON'T have that problem nor did I solve it that way.. I'm just thinking that could solve your problem. Good luck!

    So you're saying I should try installing Windows 7 on the HDD, then get the SSD working and recognized in Win7. The re-install to the SSD? That might work. Maybe.

    You may need to modify your Windows 7 setup to include the NVME hotfix if you want to install Win 7 onto it. Natively, it (Win 7) doesn't support/recognize NVME drives without that patch.

    Thanks guys. I came to that conclusion myself this morning. I tried slipstreaming it into the Win7 install disk, but I was not successful. I'm going to try it again. Hopefully, this will go better.

    Did you mean VRM? It's not really weakness so much as a certain set of values causing resonance.
