Shuttering when gaming and psu grinding noise

A few months back my old 6850 overvolted and i decide to buy a new gpu asus geforce gtx560ti DirectCUII top oced to 900mhrtz and another 50 hertz my self.
My psu is a Apevia 700 watt. Since i switched to a new gpu (560ti) my screen shutters when gaming. It shutters really much when playing games like Warfighter and or Battlefield 3. My psu is making a strange grinding noise when gaming. I checked the fans and there was nothing hitting it. It seems like when the screen shutters when gaming my psu follows the shutter by making a grinding noise. Everytime the screen shutters, psu makes the grinding noise with it. The more stuff i have plugged into my pc the louder the grinding noise when gaming. This only happenend when i switched to a 560ti.
Specs:
Gpu: Asus geforce gtx560 ti DirectCUII top
Cpu: Intel i5 2500 (Non k)
Mobo: Gigabyte z68ap-d3
Ram: Adata 4gb x 2 pce
HDD: 2tb
Psu: Apevia 700watt

  1. Well that 560 Ti need 14A + on the 12V rail for its self.

    Check the voltage on 12 v rails.

    And download drivesweeper. remove drivers and reinstall them. Also check for HD 6850 old drivers
  2. yes i already checked the rails. I also removed all the old 6850 drivers
  3. What are the temps and usage of both CPU/GPU
  4. When playing bf3 and or warfighter i get temps like 150F and 140F the lowest temp for bf3 and the same for warfighter. THe usage of the cpu would be 80% and ram would be 50
  5. the shattering happens rarely, lets say the percent it will happen 1 to 10 it was be 3-4
  6. Apevia is junk.
  7. i bought my computer at cyberpowerpc and that was the time i really didnt know anything about pc.
  8. Well try changing the PSU just to see if it happesn again .Also what kinda click is that in the PSU ? Can you explain better that noise ?
  9. ok imma upload a video of it. Please read the description of the video too. Video is upload and will be done in about 4 mins
  10. Well to me seems like the fan. Try stoping the fan slowly and see if the noise goes away ?
  11. would it be ok to put my computer side ways and stop the fan?
  12. Lol just insert somwthing not to far just to stop the fan. One of the PC i reparied made that noise. I just replaced the fan . But the noise was only during cold boot and high loads
  13. I would put money on the PSU being fine, and that the GPU is overheating, throttle and hence stuttering, and the noise is the fan kicking in, can't see why the fan would not be working at a lower temp. I would suggest the fan is broken, and only rotating when at 100%.
  14. what? the gpu is overheating?? the gpu isnt overheating
  15. if you say so , the symptoms match

  17. wait so thats overheating prototype18?
  18. No its not .They are normal . Heating is above 80C

    agreed mine games at 80-83 (GPU)

    but is the OP sure those are temps during fault condition.
  20. If i set gpu to default mhertz it will still shutter sometimes and the psu will still make that smae grinding noise when gaming
  21. Well try as i said .Change the PSU just for 10 minutes :D
  22. Lol i dont have another psu haha
  23. Well borrow it ?
