recently i built a new system and it runs fine but there is this strange sound coming from it.

it kind of sounds like when you turn on a gas cooker. After a while the system becomes completely silent.( how it should be) i tried to pinpoint where the sound is coming from but its hard to identifie.. I think it's either coming from one of my hard drives or the power supply. any ideas?

It's probably coil whine. Nothing to worry about.
