I recently moved my computer to a different house and a on and off buzzing noise has been occurring. Games freeze when the buzzing noise stop and I cannot determine where the noise is coming from. GPU drops down to 50% usage when buzzing noise stops during gaming. Temps and voltages normal.
CPU - i5-8400
Motherboard - H310M-PRO-VH
RAM - 16 GB DDR4 2400mHz
PSU - Aerocool 500w
Storage - 128 GB SSD and 1TB HDD and 3TB External HDD
Cooler - Stock CPU Cooler
GPU - MSI 1060 6GB OC v2

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you heaps. :)
P.S. If you need any more information please let me know, I am happy to assist.

If the problem started when you moved the PC I would open the side panel and check something didn't come loose. Reseat all the cards and cables, check the heatsink is secure.

Haha parts are extremely expensive. Thanks heaps for the suggestion. And for the GPU, are there any specific patterns I should look for in terms of temperature? Thanks

Make sure no wires are touching fans, test every fan by hand to make sure it's free spinning. If you have to, blow/use compressed air on the psu fan to make sure it's spinning freely too. There should be no clicking/buzzing while spinning.
