Coil whine is just card to card, even if someone had it and said it did or did not whine doesn't mean that the one you'd get would act the same. There are design decisions that can result in certain cards whining more than others, but that 3070 Ti doesn't have anything that would cause me to believe that it would whine at a higher rate than any other cards I've seen. 

 

Heck, my old 3080 XC3, a card that's not particularly well known for whining, when water blocked would whine like a 2 year old who wants candy. My 6900 XT Red Devil, a card that is pretty famous for whining like crazy because of its inadequate input filtering, is quieter than that one was, even while water blocked with the power limits unlocked and it running at over 500W in game. You just can't judge based by that.

you never go wrong with ROG strix series

I beg to differ, the Z690 Hero was a fire hazard, X299 Apex had issues blowing up its VRM when running the 18 core overclocked (the biggest marketing feature of that board), Strix B450-F was just an all around mediocre motherboard, etc. They've got some solid products, but they are far from immune to issues and everything else. That 3070 Ti Strix is fine, no reason I'd avoid it, but so are a lot of 3070 Tis that are likely cheaper and just as fast (for the price of the 3070 Ti Strix you can probably score a 3080)

Hey guys, me and my friend are building a PC and the only 2 components left that we need to buy are CPU and GPU and he wants to get Asus ROG Strix 3070 TI, as we heard that it's a top card and you never go wrong with ROG strix series, however yesterday I was talking to my another friend and when I told him that we were going to buy that card, he told me that it's a really top quality card, but they suffer from coil whine problems. I want to know if it's true. Do they really suffer from coil whine or he was just unlucky? (He bought it himself for re-selling and he said that card had such a horrible coin whine sound that it felt like there was a hornet inside the case).

One thing is that anything can have and second thing is that specific model from specific brand has coil whine from majority of its product.

coil whine isn't caused by just the gpu thats why the question doesn't really make sense. There's dozens of reasons a machine can have coil whine. The only people who think coil whine has a singular source more than likely have never done hardware diagnostics

Yeah, but that's what I was told. He told me to prepare that if we buy that card, there's a big chance it will have coil whine. So, I wanted opinion of people here about it, if it's true that majority of those 3070 ti strix cards have this problem or he was just unlucky and assumed that those cards have this problem. I just want to know opinnion of owners of those cards.

Back in the day my Strix RX580 had horrible coil whine even in idle or locked 60fps in non demanding games, returned it a bought the Nitro+ instead.

But my ears are very sensitive since the Noctua fans that are supposed to be the greatest and quietest are loud for me(fan blade vibrating noise), so I use Arctic F14 instead.

Lock your fps to your refresh rate, that should help.

They aren’t that good. Noctua stuff is generally way over hyped.
