Unsolved How can I make my motors more quiet

-Sorry if this gets double posted, my first try didn't seem to work..
As the title says..
Please see my config file, I have tried a few things that I've red here but none seems to make it more quiet, sorry but can't recall exactly what I did try.
I rebuilt a Monoprice mini with a V6 hotend and fitted an 8*8 leadscrew and runs it with a Mini 5+.
X and Y motors are the original ones and those are really quiet, for the extruder I bought this one: https://www.bondtech.se/product/nema17-pancake-stepper-22mm/
And for my Z: https://www.bondtech.se/product/nema17-pancake-stepper-25mm/
They seem to be very much alike to my ignorant eye and they both make a sound that reminds of the belt-fan in your car when it starts to slip but with a pulsating pitch.
I did try with a motor from the extruder from my Prusa (on my Z axis) and that made it even worse witch I didn't expect since it is quiet like a mouse in my Prusa printer.
Another peculiar thing I noticed when I tried different e-steps for my extruder was that is was totally silent when I used a value of 395, iirc, and with the value of 413, that I need to have, it makes a relatively loud noise.
How can that be?
As you surely can tell I don't have much experience with this so any help and/or suggestions are much appreciated.
