PSU making weird sounds when under load
Hi everyone I'm having some potential issues regarding my PSU.
It seems to be making some sort of grinding/clicking noise when under load.

For example when I'm playing EVE Online it makes this weird sound after a short period of time.
The sound seems to immediately disappear when I alt tab out of the game. I tried checking my other components since I at first thought the sound was coming from my GPU but after close inspection the sound is coming from my PSU.

Does anyone know what could be causing this sound?
The name and model of the PSU are: Corsair TX 650M.
Other than the sound I am not experiencing any performance related issues.

Thanks for the reply! I'll clean it out with some air duster spray and see if it makes a difference.
