Defective PSU that making sound like an HDD?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, i built new config very recently and i have some issues which i cant determine the guilty

- I had numerous and random unclean reboot, it does not reboot properly, Windows says something you have been a modified material blabla, then i need to select boot Windows normally

- The PSU makes very strange noise, from the boot, it seems like cracking sound, very very similar to an HDD then i heard later a slight cracking sound every 20 seconds, sometimes it disappears


Here is my config

RMA it. It shouldn't be making those noises. It also looks like it's failing.

If you're having constant reboots with no apparent overclocks causing instability of some kind, and plus having those weird noises (which don't sound like coil whine), I wouldn't think twice before replacing the unit.
Return it for warranty and get a new one.

Shouldnt i use this new computer anymore until i get new one?
Could the faulty PSU damage other components?

It could. It does power up everything. I would RMA it ASAP. Can't be too safe with those things.
Frequent reboots, noises that are not regular coil while...... yeah get rid of it and ger a new one, a same one would be the best since those PSUs are excellent units, the G2 series is top notch.

The question of could it damage your brand new other components is always a yes. Power supplies are arguably the most important component in a build, especially the more expensive everything else becomes. No power supply should make "sounds like an HDD". RMA it immediately and don't chance this and cause yourself any more heartache.

Seasonic most of my life - the psu is like pushing blood round your veins , so important , never compromise on a psu thumb.gif

Years ago, a resounding yes when it comes to taking down other parts, but now they are better but not going to say it couldnt happen redface.gif
