High pitch noise coming from psu

So recently I started noticing a very high pitched noise coming from my psu. Even when the PC is turned off. The noise only goes away when I flip the off switch on the psu itself.
The psu I had was ax850. I installed a new seasonic 850 today and the noise is even worse! Its driving me insane. I tried different power outlets and the problem still persists. Faulty psu AGAIN?
