you have all the right to get a replacement if the coil whine is bothering you. if the shop you bought from has a return policy and your card is within the return policy period you could even return this card and get another one. the MSI HD 7850 Power edition is a nice card with high quality components.

its not normal. and also if the noise is loud you don't have to put up with it. there are few users who put up with coil whine if its not loud and if the card is a good overclocker. so its entirely your decision.

Its not bad for your card, but you should RMA it if it's bugging you. My 7970 was doing it too, and it's now being replaced.

Or you could try to overvolt it, I wont tell you the theory behind this but basically it can increase the frequency of the whine, making it «silent» to your ears.

Can 7850 owners report whether they get any coil whine and which model they have?

I saw many reports of Sapphire cards having coil whine. But what about MSI, Gigabyte..?

Are you sure that its coil whine?
I got 2 7850's from Sapphire and one of them makes some weird fan noise between 10-24% fan speed.
Other than that I got no issues..

It's not going to destroy the card, but it is very annoying. RMA it if it gets too annoying.
