Recently i had to RMA my first 2080ti strix advanced i bought half a year ago due to some heating issues in it.
They sent me a replacement card which seemed to work fine at first however...
I fire up some games and instantly i start to hear THIS noise come from it: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-GNjNcNWsc894T-hThETE2foeh1lrwkp
Yes it's as bad as it sounds, i recorded it about 30Cm from my GPU with my phone.
The noise wouldn't go away no matter how much i fiddled with the settings in several games. It was soundless at first during desktop browsing but after i shut down the 3rd game the noise started to persist even on the desktop. It wasn't as loud but still VERY much audible.
I decided to RMA this one aswell but the shop says they won't send me a replacement and basically telling me "Oh well that's normal for GPUs, screw you and your gaming experience with this ear destroying screech"...
My question is: Would asus accept this for RMA if i sent it directly to them? How could anyone enjoy any game when the GPU makes an ear bleeding noise that can be heard from the other room and even when i have my headphones on which isolate sound very well. (Logitech g933)
I live in Finland and i bought it from a very well known and i'd say generally well trusted component/hardware sites.
