    Did you find out what version of Realtek audio control you have in the device manager? Please verify if it is 6.0.1.7945 or something else.

    Hi all. Can someone try turn off "CPU C State" in bios? It have to solve "Coil whining" problem. I'm not sure, but have red this might help. Don't have subj to test it, just thinking about buying.
    Btw, these feature just for energy saving.

    REPEATABLE NOISE!

    run any internet speed test, i use Xfinity speed test, and listen to the lower left corner near the headphone plug in.

    it is louder on 2.4ghz wifi and quieter when on 5ghz wifi.

    make sure you are in a quiet room.

    can you hear the electronic crackling on the download and upload parts?

    Yes, you can upgrade ram/ssd and it won't void your warranty as long as you don't damage anything.

    Warranty doesn't cover if you break something.

    That is correct. Keep in mind that these models being thinner that they're a little more difficult to work on and not really meant to be done unless you're comfortable with taking laptops apart. There will be a sticker covering one of the screw holes stating warranty void if opened but that's more of a deterrent. These chassis are kind of easy to bend when taking off as well so be especially careful of that.

    That version is Microsoft generic driver, please update it to the one that I posted earlier, and try again.

    i have another issue. when running any GPU intensive game like SW Battlefront, Witcher 3, or even Smite the wifi download speed drops SIGNIFICANTLY (signal strength stays constant)
    before gaming I have 70 Mbps download
    when GPU is active I get between 1 and 3 Mbps download
    oddly enough, the upload speed is unaffected always around 20 Mbps

    i have uninstalled Killer Network Manager and bandwidth throttle controller, and updated to the latest Killer drivers for AC from their website, still the same result.
    i have checked all wifi adapter settings to make sure they are at max power with no power savings.

    what i suspect is happening is the GPU is drawing power away from the wifi module
    anyone else can you test like i did by running GPU intensive game and then alt-tabbing and running a speed test while the game is still running?
