Abs power supply buzzing

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My ABS 1050w is buzzing even with computer off, even when powered down. The noise decreses when pc powered off. Think I need a new psu, do you guys know if ABS power supply's share any of the same connectors as different brands? It's semi modular

If it is coil whine I would get that PSU replaced immediately. Your PSU should be virtually silent minus the fan.

if coil whine sounds like buzzing...

Anyways I found the solution without rewiring because ABS doesn't make PSU's anymore. Enermax

IDK if I should start a new thread but would this 80 Plus plat. 600w run two gtx 670's? I only have one 580 right now, other found a new home...

You would have enough power yes even heavily overclocked on the processor. Not a ton of room overclocking the cards though.

ooo, no, yea i like to overclock me some gpus, cpu OC sits around 4.2 24/7 stock v. so they have a 750w and 850w version of that PSU which happens, i think, to have the same connector so I don't have to rewire anything except the 24pin atx and 8 pin cpu wires

If you are talking about not having to redo your cables unfortunately each brand uses different layouts for the cables on the PSU side. IE you cant use one modular set of cables from PSU to PSU.

Also if you are looking at spending ~200 on a PSU like with that 600W I would suggest this: Seasonic Platinum 860

The connectors to the psu are different. I really don't have time to require the case frown.gif

Make the time, it will be well worth your while. The Seasonics are top notch build quality wise, and they feature single 12v rails instead of multiple 12v rails. The single rails give better OC headroom, better energy efficiency (as you load up all of your 12v on a single rail instead of loading several 12v rails partially), and are foolproof in that you don't have to balance loads across multiple rails. You would not regret getting a seasonic, and if you look on newegg, they are cheaper than that enermax!

850w. You will NOT need an 850 watt supply with the components you have, but you could go for that for less money than the enermax, or you could get something plus platinum in a 650-750W for the same price (and the 80 plus gold seasonic will be more efficient than the 80 plus platinum enermax due to the single rail design).


Also, never assume the connectors are the same even if they look the same, you could end up with a tragic wiring fault. You could buy that Enermax and get it and realize that the connectors are in fact, all wrong, or you could get it, wire it up, and realize they looked right and in fact were incredibly wrong. I had an Enermax EPS12v supply from back in the day that smoked out due to just that problem. I never even thought that they would wire in such non standard fashion.

EDIT: Just realized you want to SLI a pair of 670s. You could go for the 850W supply in that case, and it will have more headroom than your old 1000 watt supply did, and more headroom than the 850W enermax).
