The card could always do ~1500/8000 in games, I played 20 hrs in Witcher 3 at that speed. Sometimes I used to get stuttering due to hitting the power limit a lot.
But in the end if the voltage is locked and ~1500-1550 is where the card will reach then I can't really see a reason to put up with the coil-whine.
I figure even if the RMA has an ASIC in the 60s or 70s I should be able to reach similar core speeds if not more due to added voltage. In addition since I was considering using my kraken g10 on the card, I could use the better VRM cooling and power delivery.
