Athlon 860K, any one picking it up? - Page 203

For some reason few weeks ago, the whine skyrocketed and I was forced to put my PC in an awkward place in my room, just so I can minimize the sound coming from it.

I really can't be that unlucky to have a second board in row that emits the same noise, so I was wondering, is it possible for PSU to be sort of incompatible with certain configs and cause them to coil whine ?

Also, has ANYONE had any coil whining issue with their Athlon setup ?

Yes, it definitely can. The PSU you have listed in your build (if that is the one you're still using) wasn't very good when it came out 5 years ago and I'm sure time has not improved it any.

PSU was the only part of my config I haven't researched myself. I figured I'll buy one of the most expensive PSU's in the store, and it even came with recommendation from the sellers (they seem to have a huge hard-on for FSP products).

May I ask, what kind of PSU are you using ?

There are lots of good FSP power supplies, that particular model is quite old and while not dangerous to your system was pretty mediocre as far as voltage regulation and ripple. Right now I'm using a Corsair RM850i in my Skylake build, a Rosewill Hive 550W in my 860K machine and an Antec VP630 in my 7700k rig.

As I'm very cautious about picking the right PSU now, I will go with something you or someone other here has, thats confirmed to not coil whine.

So far, the closest one I can find that resembles the one in your AMD system, is ANTEC VP600P. I don't have a great selection of PSUs in my country. That PSU is, when converting to US $, about 62$.

I would appreciate some more examples of nice PSUs in other Athlon systems from you guys. I would really like to have a normal overclocked system without hurting my ears.

Are you ordering from a web store, or does the shop have a website you can link us so we could give suggestions?

The store I bought my current PSU from is pretty much all FSP, with newer more expensive models mostly, so I won't be doing my shopping there.

http://www.olx.ba/ This site is like amazon for my country. It has best offers and prices than anything here.


http://genelec.ba/napojne-jedinicec-196 This link is an alternate PC hardware shop, they have some nice CM PSU's (I think), but it's very pricey.

What country is this so I can figure out the conversions? Also, what would your budget be?

Is a Be Quiet Pure Power L8-700W 700Watt 80 PLUS Bronze better than a Corsair CS750M 700Watt 80+ Gold when it comes to overclocking?

It's Bosnia and Herzegovina. Here is the link to conversion.

My budget would be around 70$. Currently I'm looking mostly at used PSU's, as those that are new and from top three tiers (according to this PSU tier list) are waay too expensive for me.

Ok so I had it right, was just double checking. Yeah prices are quite high there. I'm having a hard time sorting through that site, but I would highly suggest you make a thread in the power supply section and ask, there are several people there that can get you good advice.
