High pitch noise (not psu), help to diagnose please Tags: Power Motherboards mistersharpey April 23, 2013 3:57:32 PM I found another thread about this subject which is now closed, so I'm starting a new one as advised by a mod on the other thread. AMD 8210 FX Asus M5A78L-M USB3 AMD 760G motherboard When on standard power setting for "Processor idle" - enabled (default), means that when the CPU is idle, it emits a little rhythmic squeak every second, like it's crying for power. If I set this option to "disabled", the noise instantly goes, but then the cpu idle temp of 19-22c jumps to 45-50. Nothing in the BIOS has been tweaked (although it has LOADS to twiddle with), and the power setting is on balanced in Windows. Any suggestions VERY welcome Carl.
