psu squealing! silverstone strider 850w gold - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
the fan is quiet when it was working. seems that it doesn't like the silicone lube as now the fan is even louder than it was before i took it apart frown.gif
I had the psu by itself and jump started it while having it in different orientations/with the fan plugged in and without and it's definitely the fan that was making the sound.
I searched high and low for a 135mm fan to replace it with but nothing, seems they dont want regular consumers taking apart stuff and replacing parts. oh well, i'll use this as a backup and install the corsair once I receive it.

le sigh... i just can't win frown.gif
my ax750 arrived today. i installed it and turned it on to the delight of fanless operation. that is until i open firefox, itunes, pdf documents etc i hear coil whine. scrolling pages with mousewheel is fine, but manually scrolling with side bar and left click makes a constant whine as i pull the mouse either up or down. seems like this one will have to go back as well D:
