PC hissing noise

My pc fans are making a hissing noise... they are apevia 12l rgb fans. IT 100% ISNT THE GPU! the noise was happening and the gpu fans weren’t spinning. it happens every time i open pc building simulator. any ideas?

One comment I would make, the GPU fan's spinning or not spinning would necessarily relate to coil whine you may be hearing. Given that game is unlikely very demanding, you could likely be hitting a very high FPS number from the get go when launching the game which in turn can mean more coil whine.

A hissing noise? Are they spinning faster when you open that app?

The noise starts right away, but the GPU fans take a minute to get spinning. btw i had a saved part list but that’s not the same pc.

Ok, but are the case fans running faster when you start that app? what's different that causes the noise? I've never heard a fan make a hissing sound...

The fans do spin faster over time, but the noise starts as soon as i open the game. I’ll make a part list of my specs.

I'd be tempted to unplug the apevia fans just to make sure that they are really the cause. Then if possible plug them back in one at a time. How are they set up? If intakes and exhausts are very unbalanced, they may be flowing more intake than the exhaust can handle (or vice versa), such that the hissing is actually airflow through various case openings. If that's what is happening, you can either rebalance the fan directions, or just live with it as it's not necessarily bad.

There are only 2 fans (prebuilts make me mad) but it’s a push pull so the airflow is very good. it’s a modified P400 called a P418x which has 2 vents on the front panel. I personally think it’s the hard drive.
