MY PCs+ r9 390 does coil whine a lot! That's why I upgraded my PSU to a XFX TS 750w gold.
There still some coil whine very audible. My friend who has also the same GPu as me does not coil whine on his PC. We tested his card on my system and it started coil whining not so much as mine but still audible..

What should I do? Return the card or psu? Is there amybes something else that can coil whine?

If you have a really graphically light game then keep it on the main menu / download Unigine Heaven and let it stay on the menu overnight. Basically any scenario where you get too high fps (no vsync) and let it run overnight. Coil whine is usual for such cards and they ease out after some time.

If you still have warranty on the card, I'd return it to the manufacturer / e / retailer for a new one.

Does your friend have an identical system? Have you tried using his PSU in your system and tried your card to see if it whines ? If so, you could return if you have warranty still.

Its normall for a large coil wine noise.

If the gpu they make is cheap or no good then it wines.

If you get fancy models or brands with good reputation then no coil wine

I had a msi twin frozzor, zero coil wine
but with a sarphie hd7850 it makes so much coil wine that ...........

Do you mean Sapphire? They're a pretty reputable brand.
