Windows 7: Coil Whine worrying me....

Coil Whine worrying me....

Hey! My Graphics card emits a squeaky noise that stops sometimes and then resumes some time afterwards. I have found it's a coil whine and that it's normal. Is this true. Have I anything to worry about? And will it cause my system to crash? Thanks!

Looking on google for coil whine shows a lot of hits and suggestions. One being that your PSU is not as powerful as it should be and another about some option in your graphics driver that you have to enable.

Corsair HX750 PSU coil whine after PC shut down
My Corsair HX750 PSU has the tendency to "whine" after I shut down my computer. It's very irritating and I need to turn off the PSU from the back for the whining to stop. It doesn't whine whilst my computer is turned on. Would/could this be covered under warranty and would I get a replacement...
