PSU Ticking sound

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
When I oc my graphics card I hear I ticking sound coming from the PSU. It also smells like burnt in a way when the air blow out from the rear. And I have checked and it is the psu. Also its only when the Gcard is overclocked. I learnt that my power supply is good for this build. Aparently my system uses like 700w when oc'd.

My psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438028&cm_re=evga_750_bronze-_-17-438-028-_-Product



Here are the specs:
8350@ 4.8
Gigabyte ud3 990fxa rev 4
8gb sniper gskill 1600 ddr3
Sapphire 290x tri-x
Evga 750 semi modular bronze PSU
Nzxt phantom 530
EK L360 2.0
Samsung 840 250gb sad
2x 350gb hdds

oh and sorry if this tread is posted in the wrong section

It's not the ticking sound I would worry about so much as the ticking sound when it stops! devil.gifbiggrin.gif

Seriously though, remove the power supply or at least check it to make sure the fan is clear and spins freely without any issues and also see if you can pinpoint where exactly the noise and smell is coming from . I honestly wouldn't use the power supply at all if the noise and smell can be isolated to the PSU and would look at replacement or RMA if possible.

Good Luck, thumb.gif

Get a nice bright LED light to shine in there and look for anything as above posted. If it is under warranty see if you can get it exchanged out for same or larger + cost.

Any unit can be bad out of the box. All it takes is one fault.

The ticking is unusual, I have both a 850 B2 & 1300 G2 and they both make a buzzing noise but no ticking, I'd send it in for a replacement just in case.

Ok thanks you. I will check it out later this week. It seems only when the gpu is overclocked though so its weird. I will take it out and see and I will check out the warranty.

Thanks thumb.gif

Well you have the power cable to the GPU card and it may be pulling a load. Remember the PSU is the from line of ALL you components and life of it. Should it get bad power and ripples you components will fail much sooner. It stands good reason to select a quality certified PSU. For what you link showed you can get a better unit for that price and maybe a bit more.

Good Luck..
