I've recently built my rig about 2 weeks ago, and recently I've noticed that i have been getting a strange electric/static sound coming from the inside of my pc when
  1. I drag my mouse anywhere
  2. When my computer has to think about doing any tasks
  3. When watching videos and dragging a video time to an unbuffered location
  4. When in bios, the sound becomes the worse, as any mouse movement makes the noise

This is what it sounds like.

After listening to the sound carefully, using a piece of paper rolled up, i have pinpointed the sound to be coming from the motherboard, mainly where the cpu/heat sink is.
If this is to be coil whine, can it be potentially harmful to my pc? My computer is not overclocked, but i do plan on overclocking it soon. If its just an annoying noise, i can live with it, if it will not cause any hardware problems.

I remember your other thread from yesterday. :D

My opinion is still the same, BUT now that I know your build is new: this is definitely something you can take your motherboard back to warranty with.
It's not a good sign after only 2 weeks, that's for sure.
