Royal king 280 strange noise(Not the fan)

I just bought the royal king 280 and it seems to have a very strange annoying noise that starts whenever I play any game.  The noise changes whenever I look around.  When the card is in idle mode it is quite as a mouse.  After I bought this card I read some reviews saying they have the same problem.

I just updated my bios but it didn’t help.

I would love to just fix this problem seeing as I will have to pay return shipping to return this item.

I was just wondering if anyone has a solution to this noise?

Hi Sully1010, thank you for contacting us. Judging from the issues you experience your card may be suffering from coil whine. This is not affecting the performance of the card but can be an annoying experience. The only solution we can offer is to return the card for RMA through your Club 3D reseller. Feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you have any other question, thanks.
