Overclock when coil whine?

As my topic says i am wondering if its safe to OC my inno3D GTX 1080 TI though it has coil whine. The coil whine is only noticable at very high FPS in games.
At the moment the only OC i made was putting power limit to max, 116 in my case. And then 50MHZ oc on the core. Giving me 2050MHZ on core and 5700 on RAM when i run Furmark.
Also games crashes at a mere oc of 100MHz on the core and nothing on RAM.
Im skeptical but should i unlock Vcore and mess with that.
Kinda dissapointing sitting with an expensive custom water block and the temp hits 50c max but I cant OC much

Air is for breathing, water is for cooling.

it is safe, most gpu's have coil whine at high fps or when you draw lots of current ( my 980ti was doing this while drawing 400w)
Try to set vcore to max and see from there what stable oc you get.
