Hi,

I've recently started noticing a strange sound coming from, some component (not sure, it might be the power supply) that kind of sounds like a weird buzzing/electrical sound whenever the graphics card get's used, so pretty much anytime I open a game, this strange sound can be heard:

I tried manually controlling the fans on the graphics card and I couldn't hear it, but whenever I open a game, it starts up, again, my guess is it's the power supply, but I'm really not sure, I'm just wondering if anyone could shed some light on this.

My PC Specs:
Ryzen 5 3600
MSI B450 Tomahawk Max
16gb DDR4
PNY RTX 2060 Super
Corsair RM650i (I'm using the corsair link USB cable, if that helps)

I also have other stuff like a WiFi card, Elgato capture card and a SATA card, but I'm pretty sure I only started noticing this sound recently, so it seems new.

Thanks in advance :)
