What do I replace
Should this be a worry for my other components because in a few months I will be upgrading the PSU and Motherboard

You have a solid system there, but I would seriously question your power supply if you experience rebooting during stress tests. That is not a good sign, especially if you aren't even overclocking anything.

I tried to stress test my system and after about 20 seconds it restarted.
Processor Intel Core i5 6400 2.7Ghz
Motherboard MSI H110M Pro VH
Graphics Card Sapphire NITRO Radeon + RX480 8Gb
Memory 8GB DDR4]
Power Supply: Thermaltake Litepower 450w

Literally before a few hours I've fixed the terrible demonic loud coil whine sound my brand new Hiper PSU was making.
I started banging my head where that come from.
I guess my presumption that it's from newly installed hardware got me in the right direction.
I've removed my new NZXT Fan controller and the coil noise is completely, 100% gone.
I don't know if that has anything to do with it but my fan controller made my LED fans to flicker non-stop.

Google brought me here. I'm glad it did.
I noticed my PSU whining today after unplugging my machine to install some SSDs into a 5.25'' bay. I would test the whining by logging into Diablo 3 and playing. Within seconds of warping to an area and fighting, the whining would start.
I have a modular Corsair PSU, so I figured perhaps a fuse with the slot I had my cable plugged into was bad, so I moved the cable to no avail. I unplugged the cable I had added, still whined. I unseated my PSU to verify it was the issue and not my GPU. I installed the program the OP linked, ran it for about 5 mins, the whining stopped, and I just played a little bit of Diablo 3 and no whine

From my understanding, it kind of reseats the coils if you will. Coil whine is produced by the vibrations in the coils and often happens when the coil isn't originally spun perfectly. Agitating it by stressing it for a long period of time can cause little shift and will help reseat the coils.

I just got a new Seasonic X-460FL2, and I can hear a buzzing noise coming from it which is audible even over the fans. Unfortunately, enabling EuP like suggested in that thread made no difference.
Edit: it did make the PSU completely silent when it's turned off, but still connected to power (there was a slight hum before in this case). It does this by disabling all those wake up functions ( which I don't need anyway). But the problem in the first place was the audible buzz when it's in use.

Yeah, thought OP was talking about GPU whine, my bad.

That's for the GPU obviously.
