Default Help regarding noise coming from HX750i

Dear people of the forum, I am a first time poster and newly-converted to the pc-gaming world. Glad I made the big move!

In regards to the issue I am here submitting to you, I haven't been able to find a solution via personal research on the net - so here it goes (link to the recording can be found at the bottom of my post): every time I boot up a game, depending on how demanding it is graphically, a high-pitched, cricket-like buzz/sound starts coming from the PSU area. It is constant, and aside from being rather annoying per se (I built my pc with the intention of it being as silent as possible, plus I work as a professional cellist and I am rather sensitive in the hearing department :D ) I am afraid it may be the sign of something being wrong, potentially leading to any amount of damage to the internal components.
The recording was made while running Shadow of Mordor with fully maxed settings, and as you can hear it almost completely stops at the ending when I close the application. The sound is also hearable when I open Chrome (or any big image from my library even, if only for a brief moment) or during intensive benchmarking with Valleybenchmark, as well as during play with any other 3D game. The more intensive the GPU work it seems, the louder and more constant the noise.

What is your take on it? is it normal? should I be worried or just disappointed that the proclaimed "silent" build isn't silent at all? what should I do to try and solve the issue?

Lastly, here are the specs of my build:
- OS: Windows 10
- CPU: i5 4690k
- CPU cooler:Corsair H100i GTX
- MO-BO: Gigabyte z97 gaming5
- RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro Series 2133Mhz, 8GBx2
- GPU: Gigabyte GTX 980 ti
- PSU: Corsair HX750i

Thank you everyone in advance for your interest, and the help that may be provided!
