New build , weird buzzing sound. Tags: New Build New Build Systems Last response: January 27, 2013 7:14 AM in Systems Share bigplays January 24, 2013 10:47:46 PM So i finally set up my new build and everything runs extra smooth apart from one minor yet very annoying thing. I hear a low but high pitched sound from inside the case and as far as i can tell it's fan-related. I tried stopping the case (nzxt 410 phantom) and gpu fans while working but that didn't stop the noise so it is probably the cpu heatsink. It is a new i5-3570k fan that i just installed. I already tried re-assembling everything yet the sound is still there , also ran bios and lowered fan speed a little bit and that did indeed lower the noise but it is still noticeable. Do you guys think i should replace it with an aftermarket one, or is there an easier solution that i didn't think of. Right now i'd rather get a 40 euro heatsink like hyper evo 212 than sending back the whole cpu just for a fan replacement since it is the only pc i have in my place. Thank you in advance.

Go for it and don't forget to buy some thermal paste. bigplays January 24, 2013 11:26:33 PM jnkweaver said:The hyper evo 212 is a fine choice and stock cooler noise is one of the reasons people use it.

I will probably order a CM evo 212 come Monday , any other advice is more than welcome.

Allows for overclocking too! bigplays January 26, 2013 8:54:27 AM Rechecked everything , i am quite positive the sound is coming from my psu . It's a new TX650M v2. maybe i am not used to the sound but i have to admit it is a bit annoying. Gonna try and get in contact with Corsair support for any advice bigplays January 26, 2013 8:41:09 PM Bumping . So i checked my psu thoroughly and it's actually not the one causing the whiny noise. I have excluded every single fan in the case even though the persistent character of the noise suggests a fan problem. Anyone has a clue what could be causing that continuous sound? It seems to start when i stress my computer a little. Could it be from the motherboard?? A broken standoff maybe? Thank you in advance ArcticWonder January 27, 2013 4:21:42 AM Could it be coil whine from your motherboard? Just an idea. bigplays January 27, 2013 7:14:04 AM It probably is a coil whine . I am getting a technician today to find out which part is at fault so i can RMA it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
