    I recently bought a EVGA GTX 980 and installed to my Alienware aurora R2 and it makes a sound in the motherboard. I check all the requirements and its says that it needed a 2x 6 pins connector and 500w or greater power supply. My PC has 525w de Dell M821J. Also like around a month ago I bought in Best Buy the EVGA GTX 970 and it did work perfectly fine but I returned because I wanted the 980. What could it be?

    This website have the information of the Alienware Aurora R2 in case it could help.

    Sorry if I spell something wrong. I still working in my English and thanks for the help.

    I didn't mentioned that the GTX 980 doesn't want to work but the GTX 970 did work.

    Provided it was installed correctly, if the thing makes any kind of noise, it is likely defective and you should return it.
