He just means he has to open the box, and is worried he can't return it after.

the new psu
post #13 of 17

Still no one ever encountered this noise?

in few hours im gonna change the psu, just gonna make sure first to find a way to force the sound on! So i can be absolutely certain that its the psu! just sucks if the place i bought the psu's at will get back a working psu and therefor demand to get a fee in terms of the technical service they do, to test the psu, and demand that i take it back without a refund.

Just started the pc. And as before, it dosent do the noise right away.

BUT. Just because i want to be extra certain now. I put my head down around the case, entered a game(in this case settlers 7) AND i can now clearly hear that theres some coil whine!! (finally a sign of hope!) so i just did a coil whine search on youtube, just "coil whine" and the exact psu i have shows up many times!!

Now in terms of the other kind of noise i usually here, this coil whine acts exactly alike it, everytime i change something or when the game freeze for 1sec~ the coil whine sound changes/stops..

This is pretty certainly the PSU no, ye? just want some confirmation, even though I am pretty damm sure myself.

Could it be that coil whine over longer uptime, turns into the noise I have recorded??

First thing, I am not sure if its the same sound, I do sense a very distant kind of coil whine, so guess thats just standard when using power. the clicking sound have not occured yet.

Another thing that poped into my eyes is the "packets" under CPU Powers in my HWmonitor.

Before when i ran prime etc it sometimes reached 90w now it only goes to 56-57w - So ofcourse i check that out and according to intels side the cpu can only draw out 77w - Is it possible that the PSU have just pumped in more watt than the cpu can actually handle? or is this watt solely controlled by the cpu?Atleast it is "1 thing fixed".

Cant say more for now, gotta have it running for longer and play some more games to see if that special sound comes back, gonna be a bit harder to hear, as this XFX PRO650w xxx edition always have fan running! (Sound that im trying to avoid/fix: http://www.bigupload.com/en/file/83316/stemme0002.mp3.html)

Now i'm 98% positive that sound was your psu fan...maybe it was trying to spin at a lower power, but couldn't quite spin, producing that ticking sound?

Thats what i though aswel in the start, but the clicking sound could be on. And from fan not spinning to fan spinning would have absolutely no effect on the ticking sound, so i rulled that posibility out.

I still belive it was a capacitor, honestly I am still not sure, the fact that the new psu keeps the fan spinning at all time i might have a hard time to hear if its actually still their(the noise level diffrence is rather big).

I might have been trying to hear it too hard, and I do belive i heard the sound again after the new psu is in. But cant say for sure, anyways I decided to put a new and smaller layer of thermal paste on the cpu again refitting the hyper evo 212 that also gave me lower temps(about 10celcius lower in a prime95. Could also be because the new psu only delivers up to about 55w to the cpu)

After ive gotten the system up again, I have not yet heard the sound. But it still bugs me that I dont know what it was/is.
