Power Supply Problem?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My brand new 3 hour old power supply just started doing the same thing my old antec 850w did, which was this odd vibrating noise that only lasts for about 5-6 seconds. It occurs every so often (basing it off my antec 850w). I sincerely hope it's not a problem because I just dropped $300 on this unit.

Do you think its the fan might just be needs some bearing fluid.

Worse case is you will need to rma it but I don't think that is the case I think it will be fine

I agree with ryan, sounds like the fan.

I don't know why I said vibrating I actually meant buzzing.

Hmm, sounds like inductors.

Does anything else coincide with this happening? The reason for inductors/coils buzzing is typically because more current is being sucked through them and they're creating a stronger magnetic field in themselves.

edit: stop telling people capacitors make noise! they don't! only in very rare cases when you're using tiny ceramic capacitors which have a piezoelectric effect...but all large caps in PCs are electrolytic.

Strangely enough, it happened when i was browsing youtube. Is it anything to worry about?

First of all you should correctly identify the noise source.. what you're describing is coil noise.. but the fact that two very different power supplies make the same noise in identical scenarios makes no sense whatsoever.. I'm pretty sure it's not your PSU, most likely your VGA.. and no, coil noise is not something to worry about, it's just irritating

I highly doubt it's the vga. It's been happening since I first purchased the older psu. Ergo, i've had many different video cards in it's life span, so it has to be something else or it's the psu itself.
