High Pitched Noise near the CPU or from the CPU itself
I just built this rig 3 weeks ago and I decided to update my BIOS because it's not compatible with Spec Ops: The Line, the game worked but the mobo/cpu started making these high pitched noise. I'm pretty sure it's not coming from the PSU because its at the bottom. The sound is not consistent but it's really annoying when I hear it, do I need replace it or is there a way to get rid of it?

Have you tested the CPU to see if it's overheating?
Older Spinpoints have had this issue. check for a firmware patch that reduces it.
