Did my first test boot . Everything went well, except for a high pitch whining noise when it's turned on. The sound is coming from the CPU area. What could this be? I've read about this and people say it's not a faulty mobo and some people say it is. Will this go away after I actually use it (just did a test boot without any drives) What should I do to fix this?
And you started the board with the CPU installed, and no CPU fan? Not a good idea.
I really don't think it's a problem seeing it was only off for a test boot. (10secs). Plus I'm waiting for a h100 so I didn't see the sense in installing the stock CPU fan for a test boot then taking it off and installing the h100.
