Temps are fin. There isnt anything you can do about coil whine. Its just an annoyance of the ear if that is what it is. It doesnt affect performance or hurt the card in any way.

That's a very high pitched whine, I tend to blame the fan.

 

coil while is caused by the power draw and also fluctuations in power draw of the GPU, that's why it whines (if it is indeed coil whine) when you start PUBG

I've encountered coil whine on the newly purchased 1080 ti and rtx 2080. Sounded like an annoying high pitched screaching noise coming from the card, but not from the fans. It would disappear as soon as I minimized a running game, and come back again upon maximizing. I've looked around the forums and found some people reporting that it could be due to a combination of a power supply and that particular GPU.

 

Being curious I bought an HX850 (2017) from corsair (thinking I can always return it if it doesnt help) and the coil whine went away!

 

I had an RM650 from corsair rated gold since 2015, so not a crappy power supply by any means. Might be something to try, if you can do the same (buy and return in case it doesnt help).

 

In any case, remember to use separate PCIE power cables for each 8/6 pin socket on the GPU.

I have a TX650 from corsair, do you think its causing my coil whine? I also have the 8 pin and 6 pin on the same cable conected to the GC...

According to Jayz video and plenty of other feedback online, it's not a guarantee. I can only say that it helped dramatically in my case. 

 

But for sure, reconnect with two separate cables and see if that helps, first.

Yeah I have been sugessted that to, will see. I have a evga 750w supernova. Would you suspect that to be th cause? I heard they are really good.

There is a power supply tier list in the power supply section on this forum. Could be a place to check against your particular PSU. But just dont be too paranoid about it :P
