More about sound coming
  1. How can it be coming from your CPU but you think it's power supply? Do you just mean computer?
    Anyway, was this system custom built? Did you buy it from a company like Dell? What brand of PSU is in there?
    EDIT: Also, have you dusted it?
  2. I am by no means an expert but I don't think that a sound like that could come from the CPU.
    My guess is that it is coming from the hard drive.
    Try unplugging your hard drive (or one of them) and then starting your computer.
