I still can't figure out what this noise is

    The noise happens randomly throughout the day. I checked all the fans. It sounds like it's coming from the GPU.

    I just checked all the fans including the PSU fan, they're not making the noise. Like I said, it sounds like it's coming from the GPU or one of the other components.

    I guess it's some type of intense coil whine?

    Well, it's only happened twice since I made this thread and it's happening as I'm editing this post.

    This whole time I thought it was faulty pumps on the two AIO's I had. Oh well, I rather have an air cooler anyway.

    i'd say fan bearing too.

    *Edit
    you touched each one with fingers to stop it?

    Yes, PSU fan included. I turned on zero fan RPM in AMD adrenalin really quick to stop the fans on the GPU. Not that either.

    **EDIT**

    I don't have any HDD's.

    I would take the side of the case and disable one by one methodically the fans that you can. Obvs that will leave the gpu, cpu and psu. That should help pin point the nasty noise.
    Also yer gpu when below 50 c the fans should not spin.

    Good luck, you will figure it out I'm sure. :)

    It's the chipset fan. I put it on a lower fan curve preset and the noise stopped. I didn't hear it until I restarted my comp and all the fans ramped up. I'm going to have to work on replacing it.

    @Cronik
    WOW, I have not seen a chip set fan in years. The last one I saw was on socket 939.
    Maybe I have spent to much time under a rock. :p
    Anyway, glad you are on the way to sorting it out.

    Clean the fan blades perhaps, sounds like whirring, little dust caked on fan blade rubbing against something.

    I never knew a tiny fan could make that much noise.

    South bridge or whatever it's called.

    **EDIT**

    Here I have it circled in this pic.

    I'm going to clean it out this weekend. It's actually one spot that I've never took the canned air and hand vacuum to.

    Is air inflow filtered for your system?

    I say a bit. I don't think it does much.

    I have a Phanteks Enthoo Pro

    Well, the front panel isn't that well filtered. I say any actual filtering is done by what looks like a window screen on the front. There's also gaps on the side of the front panel which have no filtering at all. The bottom has what me and probably most people consider proper dust filters.

    This is the reason why I canceled my order of an X570 board (it has a chipset fan) and ordered a B550 instead after a friend warned me about the annoying noise :p

    Dunno how legit this random youtuber is, but apparently you can simply replace the fan:

    Yeah, but every body said "hey, those fans will never ramp up, don't worry about it!" [the reintroduction of chipset fans for no reason].
    Glad you sorted it out @Cronik

    So far so good. No noise since yesterday.

    Even though I planned on cleaning it out I still sent a support request to ASrock for a replacement. I might keep it at the standard fan curve preset from here on out so I'm less likely to run into problems in the future. I'm guessing running it at the highest fan curve preset wore it out.

    **EDIT**

    I'm literally glad it isn't the PSU fan since that was already replaced and gave my older brother my back-up PSU.
