Hi everyone,

So I built my first ever PC a few days ago. The first thing I noticed when turning on the PC was a faint high pitched sound coming from the PC, I didn't know what this was but it turns out to be "coil whine". It didn't bother me too much until I plugged in my speakers and the same high pitched sound that came from the PC was now amplifed tenfold and is coming through the speakers. If I plug in my headphones, the high pitched buzz is coming through them too! I also recorded some MW gameplay, and that same sound is even coming through the audio on the video. I don't know much about computers and have know clue how to fix it. I'm lost. How do I know if it's my GPU or PSU? Did I wire everything up correctly? If anyone could give me any insight or solutions to this, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Update the Bios of the motherboard within bios by using m-flash menu and a pen drive

Which exact psu are you using?

How did you connect the speakers?
Gigabyte Geforce RTX 2060 OC

I connected the speakers through the green aux at the back of PC. Headphones I connected through the front panel. No matter how I connect an audio device, the sound somehow leaks through into headphones/speakers.
