If it is nonstop however I would RMA the card as that isn't normal for a Fury X or at least not most. (or any GPU for that matter)
Not nonstop, but under any sensible gaming load no matter how much FPS. Intensity of course vary for different FPS, voltages and loads (for example no coil whine in Furmark but quite big one in games like Witcher 3 that can stress the card). It is not intensive for average human, I tried that with my brother, sister and father, all of them hear it only if they look for it and they have to be very close to PC (that is under my desk), but I am not average and all of my entire body was specifically created to annoy me all the time, by I suppose mother nature depending on what you believe in,, and I hear this whine much more and it drives me crazy and breaks gaming experience, especially if I play on speakers because I cannot wear any headphones because I feel very uncomfortable with them (tried quite a few considered as comfortable by many).
There is nothing unusual with the card itself, out of 6 GPUs I tried only one had acceptable amount of coil whine for me and it started to whine like crazy after few months anyway. It will just never end, I have built the quietest air cooled PC possible within very sensible budget and it cools itself very well also, but there will always be something to break whole concept, now its coil whine, and if not coil whine then some other unmanageable and not fixable issue will appear.
I will just move my PC away from me to other room and have eternal peace
It will cost a bit for all of those extensions for USB and fan controller, plus good certified 3m DP cable cost quite much, but still less than heahphones I would have to buy now, and they will only create another problems with comfort and sound quality, while I love my current setup with speakers and comfort doesn't play a role here since nothing is pressing on my head
Also what is the problem with 3m DP? There is like 1,75 meters from monitor connection for the ceiling, then the worse case scenario is 50cm through the ceiling (most likely much less, its from first floor to attic, so there is wooden ceiling, not concrete like from ground to 1st floor) and then connection to GPU is like 10cm from the attic floor. I will have 50cm+ cable left, maybe to put case on something so it does't stay on the foolerEdited by Krzych04650 - 7/30/16 at 5:42pm
