Faint High-Pitched noise from PSU when Stress Testing

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Pretty simple. I turn on OC scanner, and I get a high pitched tone from my PSU. Just faint enough to hear, but becomes crystal clear when I press my head against the back.

Initially panic'd because I thought it was my 570(I was trying to hit 925core at the time), which I dont think it is anymore. Surefire sign it's dieing? Or just normal wear-n'-tear?

Inductor whine. Not a huge concern, unless the noise irritates you.
