Noisy i7-9750h buzzing / beeping

HP Recommended
Pavilion Gaming 17 -cd0033na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an unusually loud beeping/buzzing/screeching/whining coming from the i7 in my new gaming notebook - I’m sure that it is coming from the CPU (or associated circuitry) from my testing.


when sitting at idle with nothing open the cpu sits at about 3% utilisation but spikes up to between 4-5GHZ clock - which is where the noise is loudest it seems, as when I limit the maximum cpu level through the power options the noise reduces the more I limit the cpu and it sits at much lower clock rates between 1 and 2GHZ - if I limit the max to 40% the noise is completely gone.


the noise is also less noticeable when not plugged in to power - I believe because if the lower clock again - that happens automatically for power saving


I have also tried disabling idle processor and this also works to stop the noise (but results in the cpu having 100% utilisation) and hence the fans kicking in  

I know all laptops produce this sound - however it is often very quiet and mostly unnoticeable, it is unusually loud on this model and is rather annoying as it can easily be heard when using the laptop at a desk or are standing a couple of feet away from it. Ive never been able to hear the whine as much  as on this laptop - 

Currently I have to limit the max cpu level inside power options to 70% whenever I get annoyed with the constant screeching/beeping and then swap it back when I want to do more intensive tasks - however I don’t think this should be nessecary so does anyone else have this issue + a solution for this issue
