I get a high-pitched whining noise during high cpu usage... Tags: Power Supplies Games CPUs Components Last response: December 16, 2012 10:02 PM in Components Share mike2012 December 16, 2012 9:57:42 PM Hey, Mike2012 here. Well, most of the time, when I'm just web-browsing and not gaming, my PC is very quiet. Even most games it's very quiet. But when I play games like BF3 that use around 80-90% CPU usage on my Dual-core, I get this really loud high-pitched whining sound. But this doesn't happen in every game, just games that constantly use over 70% cpu. The noise is really loud, annoying and only happens in CPU intense games. Is there any way to fix this? BTW, here are my specs: CPU: Pentium Dual Core @ 3.2ghz GPU: HD 7750 PSU: HIPRO HP-P3017F3(Stock 300w PSU) OS: Windows 7 More about : high pitched whining noise high cpu usage iceclock a b ) Power supply a c 133 à CPUs December 16, 2012 10:02:16 PM sounds like a coiling sound, thats not a very good ps, might be coiling or the gpu, one of the two id suspect as the sound. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
