I absolutely cannot stand or tolerate virtually any coil whine whatsoever. It just cuts right through me and the rest of my PC is virtually silent so any extra noise is heard easily. So, does EVGA's warranty cover coil whine?
PNY, at least several generations ago, did not and their sophomoric, immature handling of the situation absolutely made me swear them off until I die. While EVGA not covering coil whine won't make me swear them off I certainly want to know ahead of time if I can expect any support for it since there are a lot reports, relatively speaking, of EVGA's 10 series cards having coil whine.
Even if it's only .0001% of a chance, IF it happens, will EVGA offer a replacement for any card with coil whine with the exact same Day 1 retail warranty? Nothing like having to replace a card week 1 and having an inferior warranty afterwards.
