Default Power Steering Whine

Hello, first time poster, and I know there was another thread of the same name from 2012, but it wasn't the same issue I'm having.

So a few months ago I had a leaky power steering hose replaced. The leak was fixed and all was good until I took a couple hour road trip, at which point a low pitch whine appeared out of no where. It started very quiet and grew to a medium volume whine, loudest at about 1000rpm, and seems to changed volume as I turn the wheel. Is it possible that little bit of pressure increase plus a long trip could have affected anything in my PS system? If so, would it be anything to be concerned about? The noise started at least 3 months ago and hasn't gotten better or worse since, and the PS fluid leaks almost imperceptibly if at all.

Another thing maybe worth noting, on that same trip, after I noticed the noise, my clutch pressure hose sprung a leak and I had to rev match the whole way back. That issue has since been fixed with no change to the noise at all.

Any feedback is appreciated

Did you replace it with an oem line or aftermarket?

There is a sensor also with the PS line, did you change that too or not? It regulates the flow with the speed and turning of the steering.

I’ve heard that after market lines will always have a whine to it

I never changed it and it looks to be stock.

Sorry I took so long to respond, I thought I would've gotten some kind of email notification

E: Just switched to my laptop and realized I misread it.
The line was from ACDelco off of Rockauto, so aftermarket

E2: Also fixed my settings so I now receive instant email notification
