Hello, I just built my new computer yesterday and all seemed fine until I tried playing Minecraft. I wanted to test it out and see how it dose but when I got into the game I noticed a fairly load screeching noise coming form my computer. It seems like it is coming from the lower end of the motherboard but I'm not positive. I have not tried any other games yet and I am quite worried
does it sound like it is coming from the northbridge fan? you know that little 1" diameter or so fan on the motherboard? they have been known to go bad, you might just have had bad luck. if its that then you can get an RMA and a new board.
or see if its another fan if that is not the case.
thank you for the reply, but i have found the source of the noise. it is coming from the graphics card... I shut down my computer and removed the card I'm using the on board video at the moment and the screeching noise stopped.
Is there a reason or a fix to stop the screeching noise and is it bad?
yes of course, the card came with two 6 pin too molex adapters but I did not use them and I used two 6 pin plugs directly from my power supply. I did this because both of the adapters required two molex connection each (for a total of 4 molex connectors) but my power supply only has 3.
