Hello, I built this computer a year ago now and I built it for Gaming and heavy usage. My computer screams every time I play a game and am wondering if its normal or what. My specs
CPU: AMD Phenom 965 Black Edition 3.4 GHz
Graphics card: ATI HD Radeon 5770 1GB DDR5 Memory
RAM 8GB DDR3 G.Skill
Power Supply: 850W
OS Windows 7 Ult 64-Bit
This should be able to max out a lot of games and it does when I play, I have no in game issues, it's just my computer screams when I play these games. I do have 3 Fans running but I obviously know when the computer is actually screaming or if it's just the fans.
open the case, listen to where the sound is coming from.
Stop the fan(s) (by unplugging) and listen. Don't do this for a long time or you might burn out your CPU.
If you are not tech savvy to poke around in the innards and don't know about static discharge take it to a professional.
Depending on your computer you might have 2 -3 fans, 1 that sits on top of the cpu, 1 that is at the back of the case and 1 in front of the case (in some configurations a fan might be on the side of the case or on top).

Its been doing this for a year?
In that case I'd say its pretty normal for your computer...
If its just started you can safely assume it is NOT supposed to be doing this
Have you double checked to make sure its not your speakers? They tend to make a weird noise if not plugged in properly and you listen to loud stuff (ie games)
You should not need to unplug the fans - you will likely hear where its coming from just by opening the case if that is where its coming from
No im sure its something to do with the fans. Because as im typing right now its extremely quiet and only when I play a game I hear the computer start to scream. If the fans are supposed to go faster and maybe make a noise like a loud fan then ok. But im just afraid that if I do this for long over and over something might just burn out in there. i Have a see through side of the case and I dont see anything wrong. I actually am thinking its the CPU fan cranking up but idk if it's normal to be kinda loud. This is my first Gaming rig.
