I don't think the sound you described could be ''coil whine". You should maybe pull out the card and inspect the fan for dust or any debris that may be rubbing. Assuming there isn't any dirt or broken fanblades you can then

use msi afterburner to turn up the speed of the fan. You can create a custom fan profile too. This will make te card run cooler.

You may also change the thermal compound on the gpu chip. Only do it if you know what you are doing.
