    the installing ram and troubleshooting guide in the guides forum explains it all.

    RAM has nothing to do with whatever noise you are hearing. Unless it was beeps from the motherboard, but you wouldn't describe those as "harmming".

    you probably have either a noisy fan, or in rare cases a PSU that is electronically noisy. Both should be replaced. Some cheaply built PSUs "hum" at the power hertz rate - usually 60hz.
