I woke up this morning and noticed a strange humming coming from my pc that iv never heard before. Id compare it to coil whine but maybe a bit lower pitch. I immediately restarted my pc and the noise would go away in short bursts and then come back during the boot up process. I decided to take everything out reseat all the hardware and make sure the cables were plugged in all the way and now i cant get the noise to come back. Any idea what this could have been and if it should raise any red flags for me?

Have you disconnected your hard drives to see if that makes it stop?
I had a Seagate Barracuda develop a small vibration and it made annoying humming sounds when it resonated with the case.

Okay so the noise came back. Iv determined that its one of the case fans going bad. I appreciate everyone who gave me some ideas.
