Yesterday I finished building PC and after I turned it on, my PSU is making extremely loud ticking noises. My CPU fan is Intel i5-3450, Mother board is MSI ZH77A-G43. GPU is the EVGA GTX 660 and the PSU is the XFX 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply. I'm really worried because I don't want to have to put up with the very loud ticking noise.
Also, I would have put this thread in the PSU section if I knew the sound was coming from the PSU awhile back.
It should tell you in the PSU manual not to overtighten the screws. Does your LED on the front case flash in time with the clicks? Also it's always worthwhile to double check your wiring, everyone's done some silly things by not wiring it up properly.
EDIT: Also update the main post on the thread so it's easier for people to see and try to help
Never mind, it still hasn't made a difference and is still making loud ticking noises from the PSU. Name of the PSU is the "XFX 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply". Not sure what to do.
i have an possible cause, but for poor PSUs.
PSU fan wiring hitting the blades
i get some crap psus with this problem
but never an "BRAND" PSU
No wiring is near or touching the blades. I'm not sure if there's a problem with the bearing or if there's a problem inside the PSU that I can't fix. I'm guessing my only option is to try and get a replacement (which I don't want to do cos of time consume) but they may not find a problem in their end which would be annoying...
