Ryzen 5 2600 cooler making high pitched whistling sound?

Ever since installing a new motherboard and CPU, I can hear this high pitched whistling sound coming from my case. It is not extremely loud, but is noticeably annoying since this was not present before. It doesn't sound like coil whine, and seems like it comes from the CPU cooler (stock cooler - Stealth). So, is it possible that the CPU cooler is faulty, and how can I diagnose this issue? Thanks.

I had a similar issue with a Wraith Prism and simply raised a ticket with AMD. I submitted a recording of the noise, they determined it was a faulty bearing and sent me a replacement cooler.
