R9 270X defective or not

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,
recently i purchased a new Gigabyte R9 270x video card.
I took out the old 4870 vga and install the new one by updating with the new catalyst siftware.
Right now i face a really strange situation.
When i use pc for net surfing (except watching youtube) i hear clicking sounds from my psu.The sound is this.
When i start watching videos it stops.Even when i play Call of duty ghosts in full settings everything is ok and there is no sound.
My pc configuration is this: Cpu i7-2600k Mobo GB Z68-UD4-B3 Gpu GB R9-270X Case CM690 Ram 8gb Corsair Vengeance Psu CoolerMaster 700 Watt HDD 128Gb Corsair SSD, 150Gb Raptor, 3 HDD 750GB, 2 Optical Drives.
Do you have any idea what is happening?

If your PSU is making clicking noises, then it is having trouble delivering the power that is being demanded (or having trouble due to too SMALL of a load!). I wouldn't blame the GPU in this case. 700w should be plenty, but it could be old or defective. I'd swap it. I have some PSUs in my collection that make that very same sound.

The psu is 4 years old.But in full load there is no obvious problem (stability,noise etc)
Let's say that it has problem with small load of GPU,is there any way to increase the "idle" load of gpu so i can test if everything is ok?

If your PSU has multiple rails, it's possible that one of them isn't loaded enough. That clicking sound is definitely suggestive of underload in your scenario.

Try moving some HDDs to different connectors to try and level the load out.

Not sure about increasing idle load of GPU though. Download this and run it in a small window perhaps, to put a tiny load on GPU.

I don't know if my problem has been solved but i formatted my pc and for 2 hours now doing several things the noise stopped (except 1 single time).
I'll monitor the situation and let you now in the next few days if the problem persists.
