Dangerous. Leave your home immediately and call the police.

Seriously though, no :-) it is annoying though isn't it!

Apply for an RMA,it might cause serious problems later after a few months but before you do that,try re-installing the card,there's no logical reason as to why I am suggesting this but who knows... if you're lucky the noise might go away....

Exchanging the GPU is indeed an option. However, coil whine, in and of itself, other than being annoying, will do no harm.

Stay with what you have. It will be fine.

If you choose not to RMA, then remember that whine. Because if you stop hearing it, then you might have a problem. Cuz its possible its the coil on the fan. And if you dont hear it or that fan.. card might over heat. I'd keep an eye on it.

I ran fan on 100% but there was no coil whine....only loud spin.....so i can say that its not fan related
