Buy yourself a UPS [aka battery backup] - unless you mean that your computer is shutting itself off randomly while doing the above task at different times during the day, then that would be a different story thumb.gif

No my problem is power outage only .
UPS is an excellent idea but my system already shutdown many times should I check my SSD ? if yes how ?

You can pull up command prompt in administrator mode and type "chkdsk" which will check for errors.

sure it is from the SSD and not PSU or gfx card or mobo cause that is coil whine most likely.

Thanks Sean Webster
The sound appeared only with "Company Of Heroes" !! I tried Far Cry 3 all settings Ultra and High but did not heard the sound.
I tried to set a provision using "Samsung Magician" the sound is gone ! but it take 23GB. I am really not sure if this solve the problem so If you want me to try something tell me.

the noise if coming from the SSD could be from the change in power from the PSU to SSD on the SSDs side when it is under load. ive had it before with a crucial m4, I don't think i is an issue.

Sorry forgot to tell my config: I have PSU CM 850W Pro, i7 860 @ 3.7GHz, 8GB RAM, MSI 460 1 GB (will upgrade to 660 soon) + 2 H.DD and 1 SDD so I think this PSU is more than enough
