As you may know, reviewers and some of the initial buyers of Radeon R9 Fury X graphics cards have noticed a distinct, high-pitched whine coming from the card's liquid-cooling pump. Unfortunately, the problem directly affected some proportion of the first Fury X customers, as we noted last week. We have received feedback that during open bench testing a small number of Fury X cards emit a sound from the high speed liquid cooling pump that, while not loud, is bothersome to some users. AMD Radeon R9 Fury X customers demand and deserve the best, so adjustments in the sound baffling adhesive compound were applied in the assembly of the high speed cooling pump to address the specific sound a few end users experienced as problematic. AMD will work with its graphic card partners to ensure the satisfaction of the small number of initial customers who observed this specific sound and experienced it as bothersome.
The AMD Radeon™ R9 Fury X radiator fan is near silent, and this makes any sound from the high-speed pump more noticeable to some end users, especially during open bench testing. Some of the text above is old ground, including the bits about the noise not being annoying and only affecting open test benches. The new info above includes a specific explanation of the problem and solution, which involves an adhesive compound used in the cooling pumps. Also, it appears that customers who have this problem with their Fury X cards will have to work with the AMD board partner in question in order to get an RMA replacement.

We do not have an advance GTX 1080, nor were we given an advance briefing or invited to the Dreamhack launch event. In most cases, this sound, while annoying, does not indicate an impending failure (at Tell us if you could hear the tone and if so, how annoying you found it. We noticed this rather annoying sound when we were preparing our review of the Fury X, so we asked AMD about it. The firm has just now issued a revised statement, similar to the initial statement it issued prior to our review, with a little more detail. While the vast majority of initial Fury X owners report remarkably quiet operation, we take this feedback seriously, as AMD’s mission is to always deliver the best possible experience to our Radeon customers.
AMD is confident that on-going production of Radeon R9 Fury X product reduces the specific sound in question, but this is also a highly subjective matter with wide differences in PC case builds and room acoustics.
Thus although the overall sound levels are remarkably low for an enthusiast product, AMD has worked to reduce the specific sound that some customers report as bothersome.
As I noted before, I don't agree with the language in the statement meant to minimize this problem.
AMD has not issued a general recall for the first batch of Fury X cards, nor has it provided any specific path to help for consumers affected by the noise problem.

The noise is constant, even at idle on the Windows desktop, and doesn't seem to vary based on GPU activity or thermals.

Nobody paying $650 for a graphics card wants to inherit a false case of tinnitus, which is kind of the experience you're talking about here. Some folks in online forums have reported getting Fury X cards with different-colored stickers on the pumps, but we're not sure this cosmetic difference is a reliable indicator of the fix.
If your shiny new Fury X card sounds like our review unit does, you're going to want a replacement.
Turning off the computer and eliminating the sound produces a sense of relief, as if a constant pressure on one's eardrums has been removed.
