Hi
There is a squeaky sounding electrical type noise coming from around the CPU/RAM area in my pc. This is annoying in iteslf but i noticed quite severe stuttering in games, which directly correlates to the sound.
Whenever I boot up a game the noise will start and be constant, and i notice whenever I get a stutter (every 1 or 2 seconds), the noise will completely go for just that split second during the stutter.
Recently I have also been running into some crashes with games (not full PC), where its always either something to do with cant read files or certain files cant be reached. I thought maybe the RAM so I swapped it with my brothers identical kit and nothing changed.

I've seen from other threads possibly a motherboard or PSU related issue, but also some say its coil whine from GPU but that it shouldn't be stuttering.

My PC isn't old and I originally had to RMA my motherboard once because of RAM not being detected day 1

any thoughts or help would be really appreciated because I'm completely stuck
Thanks :p
