Hello.

When I start any of my games a weird whining noise starts. If I AltTab out of the game, it stops. Its probably coilwhine but I cant figure out which part makes it. Can it be PSU cause the GPU is like 2 months old.
GPU : RTX 2060 Super
PSU : Lepa MX F1 (500w)

The coil whine can come from either the PSU or the GPU......but most of the time....when it is heard mainly playing games....it's the GPU......because that's the component you are really stressing.

But....it's possible the GPU could cause coil whine in the PSU because the GPU draws more current when its working hard.....and thus makes the PSU work harder as well.
