RE: Aurora R4 and GTX 690 pinging when running GPU stress programs. I guess the GPU is telling me that it is overheating? I believe I bought this Aurora R4 in late 2011., so it's about 5 years old.
Can you also hear the pinging noise through headphones? What is the highest GPU temperature that you have seen it go to? Are you running the latest Bios version (A11)?
