Very common thing... My initial card (TiHD) had it. I can hear slight buzzing sound with my STX when the video card throttles to 3d clocks. My Xonar DS PCI doesn't have that because it's further away from my video card.

BTW TiHD and STX were right beneath the video card, so that could explain the buzzing sound.

I had a Titanium HD directly below my Radeon 5850. I thought it was too close to the Radeon's fan, but it has never caused any problem whatsoever.

Here is something to consider: I had an OCZ 850 watt power supply that worked great over a year. Lately, I have been hearing a lot of buzzing in my headphones through the front panel jacks. I thought perhaps the Radeon ramping up with games was causing it. On a fluke, I switched to a friend's Silverstone 1000 watt PSU, and no more buzzing in the front panel jacks.

This may not affect you, but its just a thought.

Cheers,

You have absolutely nothing to worry about. It won't cause any damage though I did notice my tiny GT240 would idle higher due to the TiHD and STX blocking the airflow to the video card's fan.

is this with MKV files with DTS-MA audio you getting the noises? Sometimes a poorly written audio driver can produce this, sometimes the soundcard is picking up voltage from something, sometimes its a MIDI device in a distant rack with a bad cable. Check IRQ resources make sure they are different for each card.
