Hi there

I just got my new Zephyrus. I'm loving it although it does make this sort of humming clicking noise almost like a hard drive which is weird since it's a SSD. Is this normal? It's not really loud but in a quiet environment, it is very obvious and annoying. I don't think it's the fan...?

The link below includes videos of the sound, the first is when it's on idle, the second is after playing some VR.

Update: I've isolated the area a little, it's coming from the left hand side of the computer (facing the monitor). I don't think it's coil whine as it's there even on idle.
