Question There's a static/buzzing noise from GPU, increasing and decreasing with load ?

Am I correct to assume it's coil whine? the gpu is around 2 yo and just recently started doing this. it's gtx 1060 6gb. It's not high pitched (as usually coil whine is ) that's why I am asking.

Likely. Coil whine can also sound a bit like a low rumble or growling. Just depends on the frequency, or sympathetic frequency it is vibrating at.

If you take a wooden dowel, chopstick, or wooden pencil and lightly hold it against various components you may be able to find the offending part. A small glob of silicone may stabilize it or at least muffle the noise.
