Yeppers. In a quiet setting, you could hear video i/o on an old 486/33
(diamond speedstar+ board). I also always figured I was hearing some
sort of subharmonics caused by excessive bus traffic.

Though I haven't heard a peep (whine?) from any machine since
then. Perhaps this is an effect of the ISA bus? (i've had nothing but
PCI since then).

Shin!
