Sould I try sprying it out with Dust off? or could it be a loose screw I tap the side of the PSU and it stops for about a few seconds. m 0 l XMSYellowbeard a b ) Power supply October 19, 2009 4:17:14 PM I suggest NOT opening the PSU case as that voids the warranty.

If the problem persists, we'll replace it. http://www.corsair.com/helpdesk/default.aspx m 0 l blackpanther26 October 20, 2009 12:19:31 AM nvm it's not the PSU it's the one of my CPU fans going on my monsoon LT III m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
