I put together this entire new system last week. However I've started to encounter a strange noise, I think I pinpointed the noise to come from the PSU.
Is this something I should be worried about? It's really noticable when no sound is playing through my headphones.

I found some videos online which has the same noise as mine. These are not my videos but it's a good example

I know it's not your video, but is your PSU the same as what's in the video (a Corsair HX850)? What are all of your other parts? Graphics card? USB devices? Does it make the noise when idle? When there's no load? When gaming?
