Coil (not capacitor) whine is an issue that can occur with any PSU and any hardware configuration. Though it can be annoying, it's also not harmful.
I have an M12D, I got it for 120 and free shipping so I jumped on it. It makes a high pitched noise when my computer is off, not crazy loud, but loud enough that if I listen for it I can hear it. Are you saying that the power supply is perfectly fine functionally despite the whining? I was planning on upgrading my case soon and I was going to use the time to send my PSU back to get a non-whining one, but it sounds like you are saying that the new one will probobly whine as well due to my hardware, right?
