I was getting driver errors when trying to run at stock. I have a feeling it might be due to a unstable CPU overclock (which passed everything I threw at it, yet crashed in L4D2 and 3DMark FS)

Tried reverting to stock CPU?

Guess I got lucky too! I bought 1 card from Evga, and the other from Amazon..haven't noticed any coil whine on either. Both are Evga ref sc models

Yours has a custom pcb not the reference Nvidia one. I wouldn't expect it to given that MSI tends to use better quality stuff than reference.

I thought they were reference pcb with a custom cooler slapped on top

I didn't notice any abnormal coil whine on my reference Tis compared to every other card I've owned in the last ten years. There's the to-be-expected whine when exiting out of Heaven and Valley due to FPS going through the roof in the static credits screen, there's no getting around that, and even my Matrix 7970's with very high quality VRM bits would whine there. Same thing can be expected to happen in menu screens in just about any 3D game, once again due to FPS shooting into the hundreds...and using Vsync can usually take care of that problem.

Then I put them on water and the fans were no longer masking any noise, and what I have isn't actually whine, I get coil hiss, like low volume radio static when the cards are under load.

It's liveable, and only audible when my system is cool and most of my radiator fans are still off. Once the water temps start climbing, the fans ramp up, and even at 600 RPM they mask the coil hiss.

I've had my reference cooler Evga gtx 780 Ti sc for a week now and haven't noticed any coil whine. I like to keep my system as quiet as possible. When compared to the now replaced reference cooler Msi gtx 580 oc, this new card sure is quieter by a long shot even when ramped up with the boost kicked in.

I'm using the latest Whql drivers with the card at default settings. I haven't seen any problems with the games I play or the benchmarks I've used. I do have my 2600k cpu overclocked to 4.5 GHz..

The new card performs as I hoped it would, but I did have some concerns about coil whine after reading some of the posts on the forum.
