I'm trying to figure out if this sound is caused by a failing power supply, or graphics card.
GPU is EVGA GTX 580 and PSU is Corsair TX750w. The sound (which was recorded using a highly sensitive microphone to best capture it) occurs shortly after turning my computer on, and is persistent for as long as the computer remains on.
When I play a graphically intensive video game, the sound is reduced as the GPU fan increases in RPM.
I'm leaning more towards it being the graphics card, especially since this power supply shouldn't even have the fan enabled until it goes beyond a certain wattage. Plus, since the computer is always receiving power, shouldn't this problem occur at all times if it were a psu issue? (standby/sleep)
Alt sound source so you don't have to download the mp3.
