Annoying Sounds coming from Power supply

I recently picked up an evga Supernova G1 Plus Gold Fully modular PSU for a rebuild I was going to do on my older x58 system.

Well I decided to upgrade, and got a 9700k and a Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Motherboard, 16gb ram, and running the same GTX 1080.

Trouble is, I can hear a slight whine from the Power supply that changes tone occasionally, and when in the UEFI I could hear this sound changing as I clicked around. This doesn't happen in windows, but I can still hear the power supply whining a small amount sitting in windows. Is this "Coil whine" ?

it also doesn't help that my Motherboard makes some chirps I am not used to, is this a new thing? remember I am coming from an x58 system. Anyway,

Is this indicative of a bad unit or bad power supply all together? This seems to be a decent power supply from reviews I read, and I didn't pay a ton for it, only around $75.

My PC is pretty silent, so the whine from the Power supply is... annoying.

thanks in advance.
