Hi, I recently rebuilt my rig and just changed the case and mobo however since then my PSU has started making a clicking noise every second, but it only does this when the CPU is idle, when the CPU is under load, the PSU sounds fine, and its definatly the PSU making the noise. please help!
coolermaster realpower m700, mobo asus p5q se plus, core 2 quad q6600, memory 2 x 1gb corsair xms2, and gtx 460 graphics card.
Its definiatly the PSU as the noise is coming from there and not the hard drives as iv flipped in another 1 to make sure. What I find strange is why it does it when my computer is idling and with hardly any load maybe like 0-5% load on each core of the cpu but when its at load its fine.
Mine clicks too. Green LED below the power socket flashes in time with clicks at about 2Hz. This is after being away for 5 days. HP T540. Do PSUs have a faulting lock-out? Temperature lock-out? Other? Thanks
