Hi since today getting awaful sound it's not coming from cpu fan or graphic card 1650 super as I just removed the card . I thought it's coming from card initially. It's coming from somewhere else don't know where..
Looks like coming from PSU.

Please help!!

Make and model of the GPU in your build? How old is the PSU in your build? Also, the PSU is mounted atop of the motherboard, your camera/phone is aimed straight at the GPU, so the noise should be coming from the power delivery area found on the back or the front of the card. Might want to take a sheet of A4 paper, roll it into a cylinder and then hold one end of the cylinder to your ear, the other end can be used to probe for the source of the sound.

Might want to also inspect the card for any dirt/dust/debris that might be impeding the fans.

i ended up cleaning up the gpu, cpu fan putting new thermal paste, and psu also i ended up opening, since was main cause of it, one of the most difficult part in my life i have encountered to deal with.. to open and assemble it back. Took whole day and almost night to get it done, i spent probably 8hrs to 10hrs on this yesterday.

i used some wd 40 to lube psu fan bearing it has reduced the sound but it is still there @ 20% . Any fan i can get for it which is super silent and efficient ? SEASONIC S12II 520W, i am not sure of fan size..
but i don't wanna get into soldering etc. though direct plug and play fan for psu would be better!

current psu fan is this: is it 120mm or 140mm?
