https://www.accc.gov.au/consumers/consumer-rights-guarantees/repair-replace-refund depending on store policy usually something like 14 day return or whatever. Failing that you have from the link above  repair, replace, return. I recently got a refund instead of replacement for a TV that crapped out within a month. So call the store be polite but firm and if you need to, push for refund or replacement stating consumer law on a major defect.

Is it definitely coil whine as in instant whine with graphics load, or possibly a noisy fan as it spins up with heat/time?

how come you steer clear of all in one liquid coolers, wish i had not taken out already to compare tests
You can still return it. I have an old corsair liquid cpu cooler which has air in it (evaporation) and doesn't do the job well any more, it's normal for these things. Plus you can't really top them up. I went with a full custom loop with my pc when I had a 980ti but went air cooled on the 1080ti and kept the custom loop attached to the cpu only.

I mean i wish i had not taken it out of my pc yet to compare to your results

He can buy my card if he like, no idea what they selling for though,    keeping the v3 as a spare I think ;)
 also have some old ram if any good to you in this day and age

Now someone tell me any reason why I shouldn't keep this card then, I think the water cooling will last me a year or 2 and then this will be old and replaced and unless there is another reason why

The guy in the shop said he would only have msi also, and he claimed this one was one of the few that he had not had back yet due to problems.
I have taken it out atm because the shop said they will take it back if I like,  it ran nice and cool didn't get above 50degree in games or benchmarks,  I just don't want to have it if there is another that is better :)
Here I am posting all this and that, when I missed this post lol

Most 1080ti's perform similarly. Gamers nexus have tested a bunch of them.

In all my posts I forgot to say that you probably only need to consider returning it if the issue bothers you that much, I personally have never noticed or experienced coil whine so I don't know. Going by what others have said on different forums (overclock.net for one) coil whine noises can sometimes go away after a while or some say it was actually their slightly older power supply that was whining when they upgraded to a more power straining gpu

yeah read that, I have a 6 months old 1000watt corsair, that shouldn't cause it surely, and I have heard them way worse, its not enough alone for me to return it, its just if I am gonna spend that much might as well get the right one :)  but if they all perform the same and if I got lucky with the silicon , then this one might go as well as any out there

If your card isn't sold yet/promised, were you able to run AC with everything on max?

Joe was asking a mate of his if he wanted it, but if he doesn't you are second in line :) 
I was able to run everything at max at about 80 fps with a full grid to 120 fps just lapping on the practice server with 3 monitors apart from I turned pp off because I didn't like the looks of it and it made frames drop by about 20.

got this now, It has done 2000mhz exactly so far out of the box with no adjustments :) at idle it runs just as cool as the water cooled one and only like 5 or 10 degree more under load with a max so far of 67 degree

Interesting, I would have thought the water cooled option would be the best. Glad you are happy , nothing worse than a new bit of kit that does not measure up. I have been happy with my MSI 1080 TI Founders Edition, but I have not attempted any overclock as it can run at 84 deg C during a benchmark !!

Bugger, here's a 3dmark firestrike extreme test. My card needs a small manual overclock to get up to 2000mhz otherwise clock speed sits around 1950mhz https://www.3dmark.com/fs/13561276
