So recently I've noticed that some noise been coming off my PSU (Thermaltake Smart Series 80Plus White) with 13 Months of usage.The noise sounds like a coil whine but could also be the Fan bearing although the noise goes off when the computer goes into high load (Ex: Playing a game) and only starts when I'm mostly idle or browsing the internet.I believe if its coil whine it shouldn't be a problem right?I'm trying to diagnosis the cause but that's what I have off so far.

The link is a private one.

In any case, this is a very low quality PSU, so if you're using a dedicated GPU, the PSU ought to be replaced anyway.
The GPU is even older than the PSU, I just wanna know if this won't bring me any problems in the future as I don't have any means to replace it right now,and if I do I'll probably get a new rig considering my parts are pretty outdated.

PS:The link should be public now
