Should I return my 1080?

So I got a new 1080 recently and it has coil whine in some games 

Would you return it for a difrent card? 

It can overclock +900 memory for 5900mhz and +160 core so it's 2,100mhz, is it that exceptionally common? Or should I keep the card because it's actually decent for a 1080

If you've overclocked it, you've already voided your warranty!

That isnt true at all.

I am sure I could find more if I wanted to spend the time. 

But not only that, unless he tinkered with the bios there is no way to tell it was OCed anyways.

These numbers are indeed out of the ordinary...seems like you have a very good card.

I would keep it unless the noise is driving you nuts.

Do you have an OSD to show that its ACTUALLY hitting that number in use?

I find you can set the GPU core insanely high but the cards will usually thermal or voltage throttle before hitting the target.

yeah it shows that in MSI afterburner, on the overlay, in overclocking benchmarks like firestrike or timespy it shows 2.100

also its a return to amazon, they also dont care if the card is damaged or not, on the return page it  asks what condition the card is in and then below it theres a little note that reads "this doesnt affect the outcome of your return/refund" so theoretically i could break fan blades and still return it
