You're sure this sound is from your PSU? I'd blame your GPU Fan for that (The fan that is in-your graphic card)

thanks for your reply, iv'e tried to listen where did it come from and according to it, it sounds like the PSU but in some game my graphic card is so hot that i can barely touch it, but it sounds for me like it comes from the PSU.

Never heard of this before.
Try checking how hot your GPU are using software like SpeedFan.

Sounds more like your graphics card is overheating.

Check your GPU temperature. I recommend GPU-z from TechpowerUp, which will track it live. Watch the temperatures as you stress it, such as in a game or HD movie.

Let us know what the temperatures are. Anything over about 80C, and it could be overheating.
