Continuous beeps inside the PC

Hello.
I have a PC with a major problem.
When I start the PC, after the Windows Login appears, I can hear a buzzing sound coming from the inside the computer.
It's like from the GPU or PSU (or even Motherboard), somewhere between these two parts.
When the PC is in Idle or even when I play games I can hear a buzzing sound all the time. It started like 7 or 8 months ago but I didn't care about it.
The buzzing sound came after 1 week when I changed some of my PC parts. I changed the: CPU Cooler with be quiet! Pure Rock Slim, the case with Deepcool Tesseract BF Black, the HDD with Western Digital Blue 1 TB 7200rpm and the PSU (a 650W Spire, very cheap one).
A week ago I changed the PSU and GPU because I thought that will fix the problem. I purchased a Corsair VS650 (650W power supply) and a Inno3d Geforce GTX 1060 3GB. However, the problem still persist.
I saw some minutes ago that when I run Prime95 on: 'Blend (tests some of everything, lots of RAM tested)' ; 'Small FFTs (maximum heat, FPU stress, data fits in L2 cache, RAM not tested much)' and 'In-place large FFTs (maximum power consuption, some RAM tested)' the buzzing noise is gone.
I will leave you the PC details before I change the components 7 / 8 months ago and what I changed a week ago.


The PC Specs before the changes made 7 / 8 months ago

CPU: AMD FX 6300 3.5GHz
CPU Cooler: Stock
Motherboard: ASUS M5A78L-M LE USB3+
RAM Memory: 1x HyperX Savage Red 1600MHz
GPU: (AMD) Gigabyte HD 6850 1GB 256-bits GDDR5
HDD: 2007 old Samsung 500GB
Case: 10 years+ old RAIDMAX Case
PSU: Spire 650W (a cheap psu)

The PC Specs after the changes made 7 / 8 months ago (when the buzzing noise appeared)

CPU: AMD FX 6300 3.5GHz
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim
Motherboard: ASUS M5A78L-M LE USB3+
RAM Memory: 1x HyperX Savage Red 1600MHz
GPU: (AMD) Gigabyte HD 6850 1GB 256-bits GDDR5
HDD: Western Digital Blue 1TB 7200rpm

The PC Specs after the changes made 1 week ago (thinking that will fix the problem)

CPU: AMD FX 6300 3.5GHz
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim
Motherboard: ASUS M5A78L-M LE USB3+
RAM Memory: 1x HyperX Savage Red 1600MHz

I want to mention that the CPU ; Motherboard ; Memory are more than 1.5 years old!
I recorded the buzzing / hissing sound coming from inside of the computer. If you need and I'm allowed, I can put on Youtube the audio so you can hear the sound.
I have all the drivers, BIOS updates and Windows Updates up to date.
Thank you!
