Well i got a pc from pc specialist about a year ago. I added an ssd (intel 520 - 120gb) and installed windows 7 onto it, i use my old wd 1.5 tb drive for music, files, etc.
The pc is working fine except some component seems to be running strangely and making a noise (its hard to explain noise) kind of like somethings working fast.
This noise wasn't there before i installed ssd. At first i thought it was a fan going slowing down then speeding up really quick but having disconnecting them all its still there, i took the cpu cooler off got the dust out no luck, checked the ssd & hdd weren't vibrating. Also checked psu but the sound doesnt seem to be coming from there.
Now i have a feeling it could be a graphics card, i have amd radeon hd 6950 x2 (crossfired) but crossfire is off whilst im not gaming. I have checked to make sure they are connected and there fans are running smoothly so im not sure but thats where noise seems to come from.
Anyone got any ideas, i have updated most drivers including graphics card. The sound isn't really loud but its annoying because i can hear it and to me it seems loud now lol.
Just wondered if anyone had any suggestions on the issue, could it be a certain driver needs updating or something?
Is it some sort of like squeal sound, only when you load a game? I always get that sound on my 5850 loading GTA4 and a few other titles, But I read somewhere that that was normal, even my old 9800GT did that with GTA4.
