    I have since noticed an electrical buzzing
    I never focused on SSD's before but I do hear some electric buzzing when sometimes the CPU or most of the time the GPU is active. (rendering, processing, using 3D...) I don't hear this on all computers but I find laptops more prone to this since the casing is close to the board components.

    Might be the coils as was already mentioned, I suspect when a lot of electric current is drawn, this buzzing seem to occur. You can use some tools like HWMonitor to see, usually when the CPU or GPU spikes, the electrical current (in A of mA) the motherboard uses also increases.

    Run a CPU, GPU and SSD benchmark, you can better pin-point the buzzing that way.
    I'd go with some benchmarks but you can also unplug the SSD and reboot, maybe boot from a USB stick instead, and see if the buzzing is still there.

    Regarding the SSD health, if the Crucial tool reports its in good health; then you have nothing to worry about.

    Well there you go! Awesome, i'm just going to assume that this is what's going on and when I button the case up I won't hear it.
    I back everything up so if it does go south it's not a big deal.
