Exactly, and also I am fine with high fps whine, like 200+, I almost expect it now. But I tried some game last night and it looks like it more of sizzling sound then a whine.
So, its really load related, it's very audible with door open, it's much quieter when closed, but still a distinct sound cause you can hear it kick in when games start.
I'll upload a video tonight. Also SLI on air definitely not good with 1080 Ti Strix, top card heats up pretty quickly to 83C. and bottom one around 74C. But I was expecting that, since they are 2.5 slot cards. So until I get water blocks will use single card only.
Also the cards running up to 1890-1911Mhz out of the box so being OC increases the wine.
Still debating of RMA, I found out there is Asus RMA center pretty much like few kilometers from me. So I might be able to drop the off directly. Still at least month before I can get the blocks.
Basically I have 3 options:
1. Try luck with ASUS and RMA cards to them
2. Return cards to store and pay hefty fee, and then wait and get EVGA FTW3 instead
3. Try to ignore the whine, first it's really hard but less you think about it makes it a bit better
