Hey, guys! I bought an ASUS 2060 SUPER EVO and it had coil whine in Dota 2 at max settings and in Heaven Benchmark but completely silent in FurMark. I RMA'd it. Ordered Palit 2060 SUPER JETSTREAM and it has the same problem. The coil whine comes from the GPU, not mobo or PSU.
My PC:
i7-9700k (no OC)
ASUS Z390 AORUS PRO
Corsair RM550x
I know that coil whine doesn't affect performance but I specifically bought a PC that works in silence (only little fan noise in games) but coil whine is so frustrating.

It's not the fans because I checked it by stoping them with my hand. What do you mean 2060 will not be silent? The fan noise is okay but coil whine is a problem for me

it's hard to get on the video but it's noticable. the question is - is it possible to find a GPU that will not make coil whine?

yes, its the sound when I quit Heaven Benchmark - its very loud, the basic coil whine that is there when you just play Dota is quiter

Respectable
Well, the file is no longer present so I can't re-listen, and I am not there but, a couple things to try/observations from when I listened last:
  1. The sound was loudest when you were at the screen/speakers. I didn't hear anything but the fans when you were at the tower.
  2. Unplug everything from the sound card (including USB headphones). See if the noise goes away.
  3. Change the resolution on your screen. See if the sound changes pitch (or goes away).
