After a day of work ive noticed a light backround "whine" on my new card. I cant really place the sound where it comes from, but when i switch fans to 0% its gone so i guess fans?! It looks like it is worse when the fans are under higher load(60%+). Also i cant tell if i just got good hearing or if the sound is even there:)d), i hope im not the only one hearing it. In case it is normal for theese cards i will deal with it, or if it will disapear after the initial "week" of working. Other than that the card is epic 65°c under load and its pretty nice to look at.
If there is anything that i can do personaly with it tell me if i cant stand it i might have to RMA it eventually.
Thanks for any help,

Other fans along with the graphics card fans all make noises. Sometimes the combination different fan noises can create this. Does this happen only during a part of a game when playing or is it all the time? It could be coil whine which is normal for some cards. For example, if you are at the main menu to a game (before you start to play it) there may be a very high frame rate in the 1,000's which can cause coil whine.

i would say its in the game itself not the menu, but it seems to be it may sound weird, longer i play lesser the noise is hearable
 

Install MSI afterburner and adjust the fan curve to see if the whine replicates as you turn the RPM up or down. If it doesn't then you know the card itself is making the noise and not the fans. AKA coil whine. If the noise increases as the fan RPM increases then you know the issue is with a fan and not the card.
