I've put a new system together and used my old Corsair GS700 and the HDDs. In the new system the power supply makes a buzzing noise and causes the drives to make an annoying sire-like noise that's barely hearable. No noise was present in my old rig. I think I have no choice but to buy a new power supply, do I? I dug through Corsair forums and found lots of threads with the same problem. Apparently the GS series is crap.

The most important question is - is the power supply causing any damage to the system or to the drives or just nothing more than noise?

Yes, a bad PSU could damage the drives.
Strange/funny noises from the drives is not good.

Shut it down!
