You can look at different reviews of whatever PSU you're think about getting to see about the fan noise. If the PSU hasn't been reviewed here, I recommend checking out jonnyguru.
It's coil noise in this one, krazyups - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coil_Noise

OP - Crappy buzz man, a lot of high end PSUs get coil whine probably because the experienced engineers are old and cannot hear those high pitched sounds anymore. Allowing the PSUs to go into production. Need some young guys in QA I say.
