6800XT Coil whine

I've heard one or two reviewers mention it but they seemed to imply it is only auditable when playing games at 140+fps. However Im getting it at all frames, the more frames there are the higher the pitch.

Is anyone else experiencing that much coil whine?

Coil whine can occur under any load, certain loads are more likely to have coil whine worst/if present, such as high fps in game menus.
If it's bad enough you might be able to rma it, but usually the response is along the lines of "it's fine, live with it"
