PSU: Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 600W (about a year old)

During hot days here, which reach around 28-30C + brutal humidity, my PSU starts to make clicking noise.

Usually happens when I'm running something intensive like a video game.

The noise reminds me of an electical clicking sound.

Judging from that evidence - do you think my PSU is about to fry/die?

Its definitely evidence that it might be, especially considering its not too great a PSU to begin with.

Are you sure it's the PSU making the noise and not a HDD?

What would be a good quality replacement PSU within the same power range and low price tag?

I'm pretty sure. I'll check next time to confirm when it gets hot again, which should be tommorow.

Best solution
