How To get Rid of Squealing Noise?

How do i get rid of the so called "whine squeal" or whine buzz something, from my computer? The high pitch noise.

I have a naxt phantom, intel i7 950, sapphire 2gb 5870 eyfinity with a Arctic cooling accelero extreme plus, and a Gigabyte X58-USB3 motherboard.

Thanks

  1. Coil whine? Coil whine is when electricity it passing through components (I think?) and something you shouldn't be able to hear unless something is wrong (again.. I think?).

    Are you sure the sound is not your HDD or GPU fan etc?
  2. coil whine can come from the psu.

    it can also come from gfx card and mobo. take the case side off and pinpoint the location.

    it can also be caused by a failed capacitor in the power supply.
    this can damage psu or other components.

    but coil whine in any component is not harmful, just annoying. its usually caused by electronic frequency between components, for example psu and gpu.

    okay i found it its from the GPU or GPU cooler, right in that area, but its not the PSU for sure, because it did this with my old PSU also.
  4. its the gfx card then- it wont harm anything , its just annoying. its the voltage regulater circuit for the gpu...
