Difficult to make, but the chirping sounds like coil whine. Nothing to be worried about.

It does have that annoying buzz and its very much audible.
First off, would like to thank everyone in the forums for using their time in helping others! Really appreciate people going out of their way to try and help here. I've been lurking here since 2015 but this is my very first post.
Been trying to find a post similar to my problem around the forums but no luck. I've been experiencing a little different type of noise than others.
I bought the motherboard more than a month ago, but the sounds started 10 days ago. What i'm experiencing is that I can hear the electrical components 'beeping' or emitting some kind of electrical buzzes. Really hard to explain as others have posted 'coil whine' noise, and that noises I heard isn't the same as mine.
The noise comes around the processor area of the motherboard near the rams and above the GPU. I've been trying to isolate it as much as I can.
I recorded it with my phone and uploaded it to youtube here:
The noise becomes clearer at 10 second time in the vid.
When I start my pc up, it doesn't produce the noise, once I go into my programs/games etc.. I start to notice the sound more and more, and becomes more clearer.
Maybe I'm overreacting to something normal, I'm having one of those high sensitive irritating hearing, it's just that I want to be assured that its working and that nothing is getting damaged.
Reason i'm being over cautious is because I just lost my old x99 deluxe motherboard alongside my intel 5960x processor (processor overheated while the motherboard goes into a loop bios restart and shutting).
Hearing sounds emitted near or around the processor area of the motherboard, above the GPU. The sound becomes more clearer the longer the PC is in use. Is the noise normal or should I start thinking of a replacement? It's starting to become annoying when my PC is in idle state on desktop.

- CPU Cooler: AiO Kraken x62
- Graphics card: Asus strix 1080 ti
- Rams: Corsair vengeance 32gb (4x8gb) 2666Mhz
- Power Supply: Corsair HX 750w (2017 model) 80+ Platinum

- SSD: Corsair Force LX 256gb (for OS)
- HDD: Seagate 3TB 7200rpm

Sidenote: I did order 2 new SSDs (500gb samsung 860 evo for OS, and 2TB samsung 860 evo for gaming collection) to replace my old storage (I took them from my old rig)
I also bought new ram sticks:
G.skill trident z RGB 16gb (2x8gb) 3200Mhz
As maybe my old rams from my old rig are causing it.
Also one of my case fans (Aer nzxt fan) makes a vibration sound whenever the radiator fans increase in rpm. But that's another case as I might just replace it. Thought maybe it might be related to the use of power.
