I just purchased my computer from BestBuy a couple days ago. Its a CyberPower pc. When the computer is under load and/or the fans are spinning quickly there is this vibrating noise and sound. After a while of playing a game for example like New World I hear this odd buzzing like noise that comes and goes. It is a AMD Radeon 6700 xt xfx gpu. When I put my hand on the case I can feel the vibrating and it feels like it is coming from the graphics card. My best way to explain it is a " VRUM.. VRUM..VRUM..VRUM..VRUM" noise constant and after a bit of playing comes the buzzing noise with it. I am not sure if it is 100% the gpu or maybe something else and if I should be worried or not but would love some advice and help.

Could the power supply have anything to do with it?? This is the one that came in the pre built pc. > https://www.amazon.com/Apevia-ATX-PR800W-Prestige-Certified-Compliance/dp/B07NWZZXHQ

Any other information anyone wants just let me know I will also add the link to youtube video of the sound.

Ya I figured the noise in the video was coil whine what about the vibrating sound?? I wasnt able to get it in the video but could something be wrong with one of the 3 fans??
I'm not there to hear it first hand, the video is not enough experience to tell what the noise is. Could be a rattling fan?

Okay so Testing it rn and when the coil whine like sound happens i can stop the sound by lifting up on the gpu a bit and holding it. I can feel the gpu vibrating into my hands. When on New World the sound only happens when uncapping the fps. I got a video of the vibrating I just recorded it I will link it.

Notice the sound is past the fans and is pulsing.

ok so when the card is under pressure by your hands then i guess it must be somewhat loose, maybe you could tighten the screws but that would mean loss of warranty... .So maybe get one of those stands that raises the card so it doesn't bend. Or else just live with it?
