Odd noise from brand new PSU (OCZ StealthXStream 600W)
Hey guys I need some help. If it's not a serious thing, I don't care then.
But, this weird noise usually appears a bit after I turn my computer on or play a game. It's like.. a glowy noise. I'm not sure how to describe it. It fades in and out really fast. Like a glow... imagine a glow how it goes up and down in sound. I think it's coming from the PSU.
It's not like my old PSU that was dying, everytime I turned that one on, it made a loud obnoxious noise until I smacked it. This is just a faint glow, but enough to hear it if it's silent in my room. The glow noise is pretty fast paced, and consistent, can go slower at times though.
I upgraded and bought a OCZ StealthXStream 600W PSU and a 9600GT 512mb OC. Everything is fine performance wise, not hot at all. Cool in the back.
Any ideas on what this is? If it's just how the psu is, I don't mind. But I didn't hear anyone saying that in the reviews.. maybe I missed it?
Did I connect something wrong???! I just hope it doesn't die or something is wrong.

Maybe high frequency coil whine...that's a harmless noise. I'd go ask the experts at www.jonnyguru.com because they are mostly focused on only power supplies, and you'll get good answers from the guys that do ps testing
Another option might be a temperature-controlled cooling fan in the PS.
