You want to fix it yourself? I'm left to guess why you didn't.

The problem is where the noise is coming from.

As I can not see and hear the power supply I can not tell you exactly what to replace. And I don't want to upset you but since you are there you would know what the noise is coming from and would replace that. If you are currently learning PC repair and you are at the point you can only replace the power supply and not a fan then you replace what you know how to.
