Question Custom Built Computer problems

Jul 3, 2020
So recently I’ve been having trouble gaming due to my computer. I’ve factory reset it and it still doesn’t run as well as it used to. I have a intel core i5-4690k CPU. At first I started having large amounts of ping so I rocked it a little to see if there was anything wrong inside which was my mistake. Then I took off the case to check inside, but everything looked fine until I turned my computer back on. Then it started humming near the graphics card so now I don’t know what to do. I’m almost 100% certain it’s the hardware causing my gaming issues but I can’t exactly pinpoint what except for the graphics card.
