As the title says, I've been experiencing a fault with the gpu, it's emitting regular, intermittent vibrating/grinding noise. The sound can vary, from this https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JpbyPSzx7hCru6__S0R5MCwXNYAWRZUR/view?usp=sharing to this https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KA5LcqrhXU_1CF4dN2f3-TZrOnNYDi2s/view?usp=sharing , sorry for the poor video quality. There's also been connection issues via my main monitor and the card connector itself.

System specs:
Windows 10 Pro 64x buid 1909
CPU - Intel Core i5 7400
RAM - 32GB
Motherboard - AsusTek Computer H110M-R
GPU - Nvidia GTX 1050 TI (card isn't overclocked)
PSU: Corsair RM-750 750W 80 Plus Gold Modular Power Supply

Steps I've taken to rectify the issue: -
Clean uninstall/reinstall of graphics drivers
Windows update was installed a few weeks ago, no issues with that at all
Cleaned and reseated the card
Replaced monitor cables, twice

I have the means to upgrade the card, but would like to diagnose the issue first. Just in case it might be the pci slot that's causing the issue (might be good idea to upgrade the motherboard instead?) Any insight and help on this would be much appreciated!

My apologies I should have included this in my initial post. I've had this card for a couple of years now, with no coil whine at all. I'd have to disagree that it's that, considering that in one of the videos it doesn't sound right, at all. Thank you for your response :)
