Default Why My PSU Making Weird Noise?

Hi,

Few Weeks ago I bought Corsair VS550 - 550 Watt Power Supply. I installed it and its running fine I am using core i7- 2600 with Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WINDFORCE OC 3G Graphic Card And PC is Dell Optiplex 990.

I am just facing this Weird Noise which is coming from Corsair VS550. Here you can also hear this sound at: https://clyp.it/pp3rjap5# the recording of that sound.

I can only hear this sound when I keep my ear close to PSU only. When sitting on chair I cannot hear it. Is this a normal sound or its a fault in Corsair VS550 PSU? I am worried that if its a faulty PSU it can easily damage the motherboard and GPU of my computer. Please let me know. Is there any thing to worry about or its a normal sound?

To my knowledge it's normal coil whine which you cannot repair. It will not damage any components. Coil whine typical for electronics. My RM1000x also has it.

coil whine is caused mostly by noisy power lines
