    It happens :)

    When copy / pasting info from one model to another it's easy to get distracted and forget / miss making changes to all the differences between models, especially when so many more use 230w than 330w.

    The GT75 1080 specifications on the MSI web site lists 330w

    I received my shiny new GT75VR today. The moment i started it i got a random 'cheep cheep cheep' noise like a high pitched cricket that continued randomly through into windows. Im not certain that it was coil whine it could have been a fan issue. I spoke to MSI and they said return it to the retailer. Very annoying.

    Do you all think its worth persevering or should i pick up a gt73vr with the same spec?

    I've listed some issues that already exist with 75VR right out of the box.

    Could be the buzzing sound from the chokes. Are you still experiencing the issue if you do a cold boot?

    Can you confirm if the noise is coming from the system or AC adapter?
    It is normal but perhaps your hearing perception is great, however some people can get annoyed by it and some can just ignore it.

    Its not coming from the AC adapter, that was the first thing i checked. It was loud enough to be heard over the fan noise. Im a bit deaf and wear hearing aids usually so if i can hear it without them its too loud. I got a second opinion from the wife who has perfect hearing and the MSI rep could hear it over the phone too.

    If it's too loud then there's a problem with it, is it like a humming or grinding noise? It is more likely to be "grinding" noise than humming noise since it's loud.

    Thanks for your help Kevin. Thats what i thought. Temps looked ok though with the small amount of testing i did with it. I spoke to another guy at MSI who said it sounds like an issue with a fan catching or touching. He said that he thought alot of failures were caused by dodgy handling during shipping.
    I am going to return it and get another one I think. Do you think its too early and maybe wait until the early issues are ironed out? I was impressed with the quality and the keyboard was excellent. The fan at max volume wasnt too loud either.
