Hmmm....just installed a new Silverstone SFX power supply. been running it for a week. Using a mini itx with core i3 and GTX460
Everything running fine. Randomly today the PSU started making a very faint crackling/buzzing sound. Very odd! It didnt happen under load, the PC was in standby mode at the time. So no the mobo or any other parts, definately the PSU
Unplugged the back cable, unplugged the wall cable (its a 4 way extension) and still messing around.
Shut it down, left it for 30 minutes, moved the cables around. Now it is running fine
Somebody said this may not be the PSU, may be an "unstable" power supply in the house. But it has never happened before, now i'm a bit concerned
The sound has gone now, but what if I go to work with PC on standby and it fails blowing my whole rig
Thoughts.....is this ok, or does it need to be RMA'd (bearing in mind no issues now, and could be the supply instead of the psu)
Incidentally, it only happened today.....when I installed my new 22" LED LCD. Running of a power pack plugged into the same extension lead
