Extreme Coil whine (Vega 56)

So. today I got my new Vega 56 (Asus Strix) and after installing it

fixing a few driver problems and installing a ton of windows updates

I was finally able to play. so, of course, I loaded up the best looking game I had on steam (Doom 2016)

and it all ran fine but then I noticed an extreme amount of coil whine (it was even audible outside the case with the lit/side panel closed)

 

so my questions are: is there a fix for this? or do I just return the Graphics card and get a new one from the seller?

Coil wine cannot be fixed I'm afraid, if it's bothering you that much then yes return the card.

Cards can sometimes produce a coil whine, it maybe that the replacement you get also has coil whine but then again it may not.

The Vega cards are loud and are known to have coil whine, you can try for another card- but it most likely won't fix it

What PSU do you have? AC ripple causes the chokes in the GPU vrm to resonate audible sound at certain frequencies. A better PSU may help.

My current PSU is some old Enermax one that that was in use for almost 15 years

Coil whine is super common, there's a good chance any card you get will have it. Though most of the coolers on the 1070s will still definitely be quieter

isn't the coil whine a problem caused by other parts of the GPU?

and the "normal" coil whine of my vega isn't even a problem because its very low frequency but whenever i play a game in Vulcan the card gets really REALLY loud and i also get render errors for some reason so yea I'm just gonna send it back and after that get a new power supply

Update: I managed to fix the coil whine by buying a new power supply (Corsair RM750x)

in most games its even silent now
