    Whenver I am not currently in a program that uses a high percentage of my gpu, it makes this loud, quite audible, high pitch hissing sound as you can hear in one of my YouTube I created https://youtu.be/Uv5m_nZi7K4 And I wish I could know what could be causing this.

    I did not click your link since most people do not like to click on unknown links.
    What you are describing is most likely coil whine. Common to a LOT of video cards.
    This issue is sometimes caused by the pw supply. If you have a low end pw supply ie corsair cx, antec or other low to mid-range pw supply, you can try swapping in a seasonic and see if that helps. Sometimes it does and sometimes you have to live with the problem.
