Question GTX 1080 makes low pitch buzzing noise and loading indicator flickers

Under load, the gpu makes a buzzing noise that does not sound at all like coil whine.

It's a buzzing that spikes like a geiger counter in tune with the load indicator flickering when the gpu is under load.

Yes it's the gpu

Pretty sure it's not coil whine, the pitch is way too low and it's too consistent to be coil whine. It also doesn't change when I look in different directions, it only gets louder depending on the game I'm playing.
