PC and monitor making weird popping noises after gpu/cpu overclock

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello here are my specs,

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.50 GHz Six-Core AM3+ CPU 6MB L2 Cache & Turbo Core Technology
FAN: Asetek 550LC 120mm Liquid Cooling CPU Cooler - Extreme Cooling Performance (Single Standard 120MM Fan)
HDD: 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Single Drive)
MEMORY: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory (Corsair Vengeance
MOTHERBOARD: * ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AMD 970 ATX w/ GbLAN, 2 Gen2 PCIe x16, 2 PCIe x1, 2 PCI
POWERSUPPLY: 600 Watts - Standard 80 Plus Certified Power Supply - SLI/CrossFireX Ready
VIDEO: AMD Radeon R9 380 4GB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card

First of all, I tried setting my asus bios settings to asus optimal (the max performance setting) to see what I could get out of it. My gpu fan stopped running automatically so I set it back to normal settings, had to install msi afterburner in order to set the fan back on. I have to run it every time or else the gpu quickly goes up to a dangerous 95 celcius. So afterwards I tried overclocking my cpu to 4.3ghz using a youtube guide that had the same motherboard and cpu (I admittedly don't have any clocking experience, was just curious see if it would work and didn't really think any permanent damage would happen so easily). It worked, I ran some initial tests to see if it was stable and it seemed so. I'm not sure if the popping noises started then, but then I tried to overclock my gpu using msi afterburner with another overclock guide. I ran the Heaven benchmark and it started having pink and blue artifacts/blotches so I looked it up and realized that my mVolt probably needed to be upped. In between the first time I tried the gpu overclock (where the artifacts appeared) and the second time where I upped the core voltage by 10 mV I played some games and it seemed to not make sounds. When I upped it by 10 mV the PC started making noticeable popping sounds (this was late last night), so I resetted the gpu overclock, and even though the power was off I could still hear the noise (Maybe I was just hearing it in my head, but I don't think so). This morning I disconnected everything but the monitor, resetted the cpu overclock and I could hear the monitor making popping noises. When the monitor was disconnected I can still hear occasional pops from the pc. I tried plugging in the pc to my tv vid HDMI to check if it was just the monitor, but the connection must've overloaded something and the pc crashed and restarted itself.

I haven't a clue what this could be, is the tv just not compatible with the voltage of the computer? Or have I really screwed something up through the overclocks. Looking back, I now realize how dumb I must've been to have attempted overclocks by just using other peoples guidelines and not doing it little by little. Not to mention not running a comprehensive burn in. Is the power supply insufficient and is burning out? etc.

Also the temperatures during it all were normal besides the fact that the gpu fan stopped working and I had to manually set it through afterburner.

Help is appreciated, please and thank you.

PS: It might be more "clicking noise" then popping noise. Could it just be the hard drive?

Please list the PSU brand and model as wattage does not tell us anything.
If you have a Corsair CX or a OCZ ModXStream Pro get rid of it.

And please leave some more space between what you are typing as your wall of text is very hard to read.

Sory but what you have there is ancient outdated and all around not very good.
And its not a 600 watt unit either.

You should not run such a power hungry system on such a PSU.

I see, what kind of power supply would you recommend for my build?

Depends on where you are and where you want to buy from from how much you want to spend?
Does it have to be modular either semi or fully or is non modular good enough?

mm I really have no idea about psus, would modular/non modular be easier to set up? Is there a significant price difference. I'm in Texas USA

Modular means you can plug the cables you need in and leave the the ones you dont need in the box so they dont cluter and takes up space in your case.
Non modular means the cables are fixed and cant be removed.

Modular cost more but also looks nicer as there are less cables you need to try and hide.
Where do you want to shop from? is newegg fine? and how much do you want to spend?

Just to be clear you are not going to get anything that is good for less then $60 and even then the options are very limited.
Not trying to be rude towards you or anything like that but please dont buy another junker if you can avoid it.

Best deal for less then $60 is this from newegg
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438059&cm_re=EVGA_GQ-_-17-438-059-_-Product

Its okey but its ripple suppression is not all that great.

Newegg is fine, maybe a little over 100$. Yea I know now looking at what others have said about it being very unstable, fell for the cyberpower sale free upgrade and didn't realize It at the time. I'll be more careful now. Modular would be nice if there are any good ones in the price range

Also do you think that the power supply is what's causing everything? Since my gpu and cpu temps stability etc. seem fine.

I just hope I didn't fry anything

Dont know if the PSU has something to do with your problem for sure but as i said its old and its not very good and its by far the worst part in your system.
So no dont keep it, and $100 is more then enough in fact some of the best options around costs less

You can get a fully modular EVGA SuperNova G2 550 watt for $70 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438053&cm_re=EVGA_SuperNOva_G2-_-17-438-053-_-Product

If you want to add another video card you are going to need more wattage no matter what you do.
You are looking at a 750 watt unit if you want to add another 380.

$100 after rebate for the 750 watt.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1N83U90889&cm_re=EVGA_SuperNOva_G2-_-17-438-017-_-Product

I have the 750 watt G2 myself.

As for the clicking noise where does it come from?
Take the side panel off and try and find where its coming from.
