Default Corsair PSU Buzz, I need advice

I bought a new corsair TX550m and installed it properly on my system. First day of using it everything is completely normal, and next day when I turned it on, it emits a buzzing noise coming from the back of the PSU. I also noticed that it also transmits its buzzing noise to my speakers connected to my PC. I think after 3-5 minutes the buzzing goes out and will be heard again after a few hours, I only notices it to emit those buzzing noise for about 2-3 times a day only.

Is this normal for a new PSU and will it eventually go out? or should I ask for a replacement?

My system specs are:
Ryzen 5 1600 (OC'd to 3.7Ghz)
2x8Gb DDR4 Ram
Gtx 1070ti
1 SSD
1 HDD
4 case fans

Additional info: My PSU still buzzes even when it is turned off from its switch, It only goes out if I wait it out or I pull its plug from the socket.

Thanks

Check that your outlet is properly grounded.

Sounds like it might not be.

Okay, got it, I think that's the problem. Will update again if it happens again, for now I'll try to install a grounded connection to our outlet. Thanks

You can tell that from a buzzing sound?

The buzz at the PSU AND the fact that there's a buzz in his speakers typically points to a poor ground. If it was normal magnetic buzzing (i.e. Coli whine) you wouldn't hear it in the speakers.

Thanks for a cogent explanation.
