According to MSI, the yellow Solid State Chokes (SSC) is new on this card.  As traditional choke has different parts inside (housing, coil, ferrite stick), it will generate high frequency noise under heavy load because of vibration. For SSC, it is made up of iron chunk with coil buried inside so there is no different parts thus it doesn’t cause the buzzing noise anymore. Also, it can increase power density.
