My computer makes a very annoying high pitched noise when i run games. It sounds like its coming from my graphics card and its almost pulsing noise. I could very well be wrong. (the reason of the category Other Components)
Here is my PC setup:
PSU: AZZA Alpha 700 watt power supply (my computer uses about 350 watts)
CPU: AMD FX 4100 3.6 Ghz OC'd to 4Ghz
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6670
RAM: 4GB 3333Ghz GDDR3
HDD: 500GB 7500RPM
Any way you peeps can figure out where the noise is coming from and how to stop it?

Open up your case and inspect all the fans, one of them is crapping out, or has a wire rubbing against the fan blades. :)

Well its not one of my fans... i used the overclocking to turn each one off but nothing changed. (ofcourse i didnt leave them off, that would be stupid :D ) But both those sounds sound like mine... I think it is the power supply though, thanks! Is there anyway to make it go away though? its driving me nuts!
