Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

When posting a thread of troubleshooting nature, it's customary to include your full system's specs. Please list them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

include the age of the PSU. The specs will tell us if your PSU is short of delivering the right amount of power to the entire system. FYI, that unit isn't exactly built with the best of components. You might want to roll up a sheet of A4 paper into a cylinder and hold one end to your ear while the other is used to probe for the source of the noise. You might be experiencing coil whine which isn't a good thing, most of the times.

Since you posted this thread in the overclocking section, I'm curious to know what sort of an overclock you've performed on the platform(?).

things it could be.....

fan blades coming in contact with wire or something else

if there's a laminated core transformer or inductor the laminations might be vibrating (those parts are pretty rare these days)

a relay that's 'chattering'

other than that, can you post a sound file or video of the sound?
