Default CX650M buzzing/vibrating sound


about a week ago i have built a computer with the following parts:

Motherboard: Gigabyte b150-HD3P
CPU: i5 6600 4x 3.30GHz
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1060 Gaming G1 6GB
Hard drive: 250GB Samsung SSD
Case: Corsair Carbide series 200R
PSU: 650 Watt Corsair CX series CX650M (Modulat 80+ Bronze)

All of the components are working perfectly fine except PSU which is loud sometimes (buzzing annoying sound) - wheter at full load (gaming) or idle.

I am wondering if this PSU is too weak for my other components? while it makes buzzing sound it's completly cool (not overheated), other components are also at normal temperatures. Should i be worried (can it harm my pc)? Should i try to find what is causing the prolem or should i simpy buy new PSU (better quality)?

Things i have tried to get rid of the problem:

disabled power saving features in BIOS,
opened PSU to check if there is something in the fan - it looks completly fine
i also have all latest drivers installed. - My system is running on win 10 64bit.
Problem must be mechanical as i hit my computer once and the buzzing stopped (for few mins).

I hope you can help me with this one, thanks.

Did you ever find any solution for this? I have the exact same problem it seems, with the same PSU.

i have the same problem with my RM850i when I set the fan over 90% of the speed. So, it could be either fan or sth close to the fan that produce buzzing of fan's vibration...
Sound stops after I decrease the fan speed below 90%.
