Recently my PSU has started making noticable electrical noises under load
(similar to the noise of plugging in a speaker, or turning on an old TV, if that helps)
I was wondering if that's OK.
I did overclock recently so it could be it's just trying to keep up.
Note this is not a high pitched noise and the fan works fine.
Also I didn't experience any strange restarts or crashes.
Thank you in advance.
Overclocking changes the max TDP - that is why only some motherboards are capable of overclocking. Turn changing everything back to original speed and see if the problem persists if it does, RMA the power supply.
I'm not sure what you mean by OK voltages.
I did monitor everything and the values are fine on both compoments (I overclocked both CPU and GPU).
I also monitor it on screen and while benchmarking, so voltages are just as neccesary.
So to clear things up, as long as nothing unusual happens I'm OK?
I'd rather not RMA it unless I have to as it means I'll go at least 2 weeks without the PSU while it's being inspected.
and thank you all for the quick responses, by the way.
I used prime 95 and Realbench for the CPU, and Furmark for the GPU. Everything ran OK so I guess I can relax.
My case is different. The GPU ran fine for the last year (though I never ran at full fans before) .
The sound mine makes is a static buzz like noise (like astronauts and military radios in the movies, if that helps)
Temps are same as always, though, and nothing is loose...
