Hello
My power supply which is: EZCOOL 650W ATX 24Pin Super Silent PSU makes weird noise like cogs.
It also overheats quickly.
Another question is: when I run SpeedFan while everything is Ok around 30-50 degree Celsius my AUX temperature whatever that might be is 130 degrees Celsius.
It seems I do not have a AUX fan but the temperature is very high?
I also don't have a system fan or AUX1 and AUX2 but those temperatures are ok.

I don't know what a cog sounds like, but if the PSU makes noise ocasionaly, check to see if the fan is hitting something. It could be bent or out of alignment and striking the grill. It would then slow down and cause temp rise.

the cogs in power supply means fan is in trouble that why psu overheat the fan do not cool it,for your speedfan the aux temp refer to a amd board or intel board

The thing is that when I stop the fan the sound is still made. I have asked on other forums and they said that the PSU is basically crap, but I would like to know what is happening

What do you mean, 'when you stop'... when you shut down the system?

No I mean when I physically stop the fan.

Replace the psu,you're just asking for trouble.
Crappy units have nasty habits of damaging other components when they die.
A decent,reliable psu with a 3yr warranty costs @$50.
