Does coil whine happen on all 5700XT cards or did I get a bad one?

Question asked by geef` on Dec 20, 2019

I own an MSI RX 5700 XT 8G card.  I noticed the noise shortly after I got my card but I didn't put it together that it might be the card causing it.  I thought it might be the monitor speakers at first but I always keep them disabled.  I then bought a new monitor just in case and it still happens.  Recently I found out that its called COIL WHINE on reddit and a lot of people have it.  I have good hearing so that noise is bothersome.
