Weird. I have that exact card, and it doesn't make any noise. In fact, the Sapphire PULSE is actually one of, if not the, most quiet aftermarket 5600 XT cards. I wonder if maybe you're getting some kind of electromagnetic interference from some other source.

Sounds like an old wives tale, or something that worked once in one thing.  It wouldn’t be reliable.  How coil whine works is well known.  The irritating thing is there’s basically nothing that can reliably be done about it.  It happens when the magnet in a coil cracks (which thy commonly do) and the intense magnetic field causes the coil to vibrate.  If the vibration is the right frequency a harmonic is crated in the human hearing range.   It is sometimes possible to change the harmonic so while the vibration still happens it’s not audible to humans.  Tiny changes in clock speed and voltage can be hunted through to maybe find something.  There may be nothing, it may become worse not better at certain settings, you might get lucky.  This online cap thing might do that. Change the harmonic slightly.  Perhaps one it happened to hit this thing in such a way that the vibration became inaudible once.  To someone.  Another trick is to try painting the offending coil with clear nail polish.  Effectively glueing the coil in place and stopping part of it from vibrating.  Sometimes it works.  Sometimes it doesn’t.  Sometimes it works for a while and rips loose. 


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.
