For the last few weeks there was a loud buzzing sound coming from the area of the PSU, I didn't think too much of it first but then I noticed when the buzzing would kick in and cut out - it got much much worse whenever there was a heavy graphical load on whatever game I was playing at the time - especially when there was heavy post processing taking place.
I replaced it with a new Sharkoon WPM600 600W PSU and the difference (to me) seems extraordinary, I swear fps are increased, no slow downs, incredibly 'snappy' responsiveness.
My question is: is it really possible for a new PSU to have such such effects, and equally, a PSU going bad to screw stuff up like that? Was it really worth swapping it out or am I imagining it?
