I built a new computer recently
i7-3770, coolermaster 212 evo, antec 300 case, gtx 680, 8gb gskil ripjaws, 120gb sandisk ssd drive.
In any case, the computer has been running fine for two months, but now when I turn on my computer, I hear a weird clicking noise like "tk tk tk tk." The sound lasts for about a minute or two and then stops and runs normal from then on. If I reboot the computer, the problem doesn't occur. It only starts when I power on my computer from a cold boot. However, if I shut down my computer and turn it on a few seconds later, then it won't make that noise. In other words, it only makes that noise if the computer has been off for a few hours and then turn it on. I unplugged the fans and it still makes the noise. I don't think it's the ssd, because there is no moving parts. Everything is working perfectly, so I don't know what the problem is.
really good psu can also have faulty fans and power cords don't worry it's on the warranty you can return that one and get a new one just call them up if it doesn't fix the problem no sweat you have a new psu and that eliminates the psu out of the build flaw
hmm i don't think that the psu is the problem. i looked at youtube videos of faulty psus and they emit an obvious "something is seriously wrong" noise. maybe i should describe the sound better. it sounds like a 7200rpm harddrive accessing/transferring data, but louder. does this help?
It sounds like a hard drive access/clicking noise, but i don't think it's coming from the hard drive, because ssd's don't have moving parts. most of the forums that address noise problems deal with fan issues, but i don't seem to be having any fan issues. when using cpuid, all the fans are at a steady rpm and don't fluctuate. hm.... i don't know what to do.
