    well that's definately a cheap PSU, and could use an upgrade regardless. But also double check which fan is really making the noise.
  2. Here's a tip: Geeks.com sells awful power supplies most of time. A good power supply is going to set you back probably around $50.

    I would open the case and listen to which fan is the loudest in the case.
  3. looks like someone got a EXTREMELY low quality power supply. good thing it didnt fry anything yet

    you need something like this. seasonic made and has a good warranty behind it
