Coil whine

Hi guys!

So after building my new rig which consists of the following

P9x79 Pro
i7 3820
2x Asus GTX 670 DCU2
16Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz
Corsair ax 860 Psu
Thermaltake Chaser MK1

I notice that when gaming the motherboard Starts to make a strange humming/buzzing sound, sure enough i found out that it is coil whine. It doesnt bother me because when i close the side pannel on my case its not that audible i would have to literaly stick my ear to the pannel to hear it + i game with headphones. My question is, whether this noise can affetct my components in any way to case damage the noise really doesnt bother me i cant hear it. It only makes the sound when im putting some GPU benchmarks on it or gaming, and im sure its not the GPU coz i switched lanes switched cards and the whine is still there i managed to isolate it to the Motherboard.
