Could my system be crashing due to too little wattage? It freezes and makes a buzzing like noise. I run dual GTX 470's, an i5 760, 4 sticks of ddr3, 1 SATA HDD, Antec 900 case, and quite a few USB adapters are plugged in. I think my psu might only be 650 watts. I'm just looking for someone to either agree with this or not.
More aboutenough power
Just verified I have a 750 Watt antec(EarthWatts) PSU.
An Antec EA750W should be enough and is a good unit. Where is the noise originating from?
Also, listen to the other parts of the system when it happens to make sure. Try a tube, like a paper towel roll, to localize the sound.
it comes out of the speakers for sure. It sounds like when an AMP has just been plugged into a guitar but continuously. And ya thanks for verifying that for me. I'll gladly take any recommendations from people for PSU's xD
Alright well I'll do a bit more research on this and see if I can find anything. If not then I'll try a new PSU but I honestly don't wanna spend any $ at all cuz Bulldozer and Kepler are gonna be out at the end of this year.
Would a MAJOR drop in performance for everything be fault to a failing psu? Since last time it shut off like that. I've had low framerate in games and a slower start up and longer loading times. Even when I open Chrome it takes about 5 seconds.
