I just bought a brand new GIGABYTE rx 5700xt, and right out of the box there was extremely loud coil whine, I thought I would be able to just ignore it but it got louder overnight. Now a day later there is a loud squealing noise (capacitor going out already?) whenever I start up any demanding game whatsoever. I also noticed that the fans hardly even spin up, even with me changing the fan curve in wattman. What I am mainly worried about is the squealing because I read that its a capacitor about to go bad, and I kind of just saved up for a couple months for this so for it to die on me this early would be devastating.

Please somebody give me some good news or any idea on how to fix it, I looked into getting a refund or replacement and it seems I cant(?) Im not sure if I just looked in the wrong place on newegg.
