Strange noise while running ATITool 0.0.22

    Hi, I've got a slight problem with ATITool 0.0.22. It's probably nothing to worry about but when the 3d view is opened and the cube is spinning i hear a strange noise like a fan sruggling to spin (a squealy type noise). This ONLY happens when the cube is spinning not while it is stationery. I haven't got a clue why this happens but i think its my CPU fan but it never happens while playing games/benchmarks or any other app. I'm totally stumped!! Any ideas?


    System Specs:

    AMD Athlon XP 3000+ 333 FSB
    1 GB Samsung DDR 400
    Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 (Rev 2)
    Sapphire 9800 Pro 256 MB Flashed to Sapphire 9800 XT
    Soundblaster Augidy Player
    Windows XP S/P 2
    Cat 4.9 Beta drivers

    this sound comes from the voltage regulation circuitry on the video card .. in certain situations the coils start emitting sounds - this is nothing to worry about. in theory it should happen to every card, just in different situations (varies between individual cards)

    for some reason my x800 pro with a silencer 4 on it makes that sound all the time (at all percentages). It aint the fan cuz i stopped it with my finger for a split sec and the sound continues. Is there a way to get rid of the sounds? Other then shutting the fan off :D

    with 3d marks 03 my PSU 550W superSilent makes such a noise...intervalls of "little pieps"...must be different voltages working hard when staring a Benchmark or other heavy Apps...but it's only with 3dMarks03...
