Lenovo Thinkpad X1E Coil Whine

If you have the X1 Extreme I'm just curious as to how often or how audible can you hear the coil whine in laptop? Mine varies for several seconds when I boot it up, when I listen to music sometimes, to long stretches upwards to a minute or two when on idle. The level of sound ranges from time to time but it's generally on the low side. Noticealbe in a slient room but not so much when there's other sources of noise around. I've look around to finding various post where it's pointing to the speaker settings, to undervolting, to just being a common issue in most laptops.


Just curious as if do all Thinkpads X1E have this, does yours, and is there a way to reduce or remove it completely?
