i have a ryzen 5 2600 cpu and a gtx 1660 gpu. i know little about pc's so i'll let you guys ask any other questions.

note that once i apply pressure, the sound from my psu just stops or gets less loud.

Xilence PSUs are poor quality. I advise you to replace it before it fails and damages something.

Replace it with a Seasonic, Corsair or EVGA unit.
Thanks! im going to buy a seasonic psu with 650w instead of 500w which the XILENCE one has. i hope i wont have to hear god awful noise again.

Xilence has some good units and some bad units.

Your problem is not solved with higher wattage. That's a waste of money.

List your full system specs.
