Hello all, 
I haven't had this issue with a card before, but I have a new 2080 Super XC that I think has horrendous coil whine.

In the video the clicks you hear are me taking it on and off load. I have confirmed it is not the fans. 
 
I am using a new 600W Corsair SFF 80+ gold. With my GTX 1080 there was no noticeable noise.  It is in an Asus ROG Strix-I gaming mobo, Ryzen 3800x.
I can easily hear this across my apartment. I have done some burn in with little improvement. Is an RMA the required solution?

    Fixes for coil whine...
     
    #1 Put glue on the noisy coils. Only works if coils are exposed. Will void warranty if done.
    #2 Run ati tool overnight to burn the card in. Click show 3d view to start ati render test.
    #3 Increase/decrease voltage on the card.
    #4 Use frame rate limiter software to limit fps in game to reduce whine.
    #5 Try a different psu.
    #6 Try a different motherboard.
    #7 RMA the card.
     
    Coil whine is harmless... https://www.evga.com/support/faq/FAQdetails.aspx?faqid=59535

    Thanks, I know it is harmless, but it is pretty intolerable so I will see about an RMA.
