So today i wanted to play soul reaver 2 tried pcsx wasnt a great experience so i installed the pc version wich is known to not work on new HW
used dgvoodoo and dxwrapper in combination to get it working played about 5 min but then i started to notice a weird screeching noise from my pc (could be coil whining) closed the game noise was gone startet the game again noise came back i noticed something else the sound would change in pitch depending on what i do in the game (moving ,looking around,cutscenes) anybody an idea? how to fix it or is it safe just to play? oh and i should mention i get these noises only when i play this game other game works fine

edit: its definetly the dxwrapper

try crysis pc, if that generates the same noise it's just your cooling system that kicks in, it could be you've got a first batch Geforce 30## and it tries to get the turbo running.
this is not good, since the caps on the power filter ain't done right.
if it's a splash/steamy sound, your liquid cooling might leak.
in the old days it could've been bad coils or bat socket connections.
you should get worried if it sound like electronic ignition.

I was thinking coil whine as soon as I saw the post. My GPU does it with certain games, even when there is not an issue with heat. If you wanted to see a little more information you could use open hardware monitor; open hardware monitor is an open source project on GitHub. It can tell you about the heat and voltage, if I remember correctly, for your CPU and GPU.
