(Help) Computer making high pitched, almost inaudible, noise.

Hello to all of LTT forum users. 

 

I recently bougth a new budget pc, and i've been tweeking some of its configuration; nothing mayor tho, i mostly just added some case fans and change the front IO position and cable management. 

Nevertheless, i been noticing that my computer is making a high pitched noise, that's almost inaudible, but is getting really annoying. I have umplugged all of my case fans thinking the noise was comming from one of them, but it didn't change much. I'm suspecting that it has something to do with the cpu fan, since i think its comming from that overall area. 

 

I would like if someone with more experience than me could confirm if it is coil whine or if it's something else i should be concerned about. So far, my computer has been working properly.

 

My specs are:

MOBO: Gigabyte b450m ds3h
CPU: ADM Ryzen 5 3400g

GPU: ASUS Gtx 1650 super Phoenix OC

Ram: 16gb 3000 mhz (Geil RGB x2)

PSU: Coolermaster 500w 

 

Heres a video of the noise it's making, (It's almost undetectable, but you can hear beetween the 6th and 10th second of the video)

 

 

 

 

Any help is greatly apprecieted, thanks.

It's not something you should worry about. But like you said, it'll be something that might just annoy the crap out of you.
