PSU going bad???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi

I have a 7month old PSU (antec truepower ns 750w), it makes a weird noice, it's like you can litterally hear the electricity going through the PSU.
I googled & youtubed it. It's called coil whine noise and alot of A-brand PSU actually have this "problem".

Do you guys have experience with this? Is it really a problem??

Any comments would be appreciated

It's something that can happen yes, a lot of PSU's have it.
Wether it's acceptable or not is a different matter, especially when it's at such a high frequency that it becomes annoying, but in most cases you should barely be able to hear it.

But it does no harm.
My PSU doesn't create the noise but my videocard does it when under load, i can't hear it unless i put my ear close to my case though.

Yes, it's called coil noise and is perfectly normal(although unpleasant).

I have the same issue coming from my 560-ti card... It started after i re-thermal pasted the gpu and i thought i had broken something, but after some research there is nothing to worry about! *thank god*
