what pray-tell is "coil whine"? I know fans and spinning-rust drives whine, but "coils"? That'd drive me bonkers.
High pitched squealing/clicking that changes tone with CPU/GPU workload, battery charging, etc. If you work in a quiet environment it's super annoying. Not sure if comes through well in this video. pic.twitter.com/Vd8bqtmeDr
I'm super sensitive to this as well.. very annoying. My ThinkPad E560 is also pretty bad. 🙁
I'm half deaf like the designers so I wouldn't ever know, just send it to me
Is it an i7?
That's some annoying coil whine ... I thought it was only a Dell feature. ..
Did you get it to work on an other kernel?
No, I returned it.
Same problem here - such an awesome notebook but still no solution for the coil whining. Amazon will replace mine with another, but I am worried the new one will have the similar problem. Did you find a solution?
No, I just returned it and went back to my old Matebook X
alright :) thanks for your answer
Hi, did the replacement laptop fix the coil whine?
