Cpu noise

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.
Ever since I've o/c'ed my e6600 there has been a weird buzzing noise coming from it whenever it does any noticeable work, especially in games. Besides just being plain annoying, I'm worried if the cpu is being/has been damaged. Any ideas why it's doing this and how I can fix it? :-/

Are you sure it isn't coming from your PSU (Power Supply)? It might be because that after you overclocked it, the strain on the PSU is larger than before, and might cause some of the capactiators to whine (that's what you call it)

I agree

Your CPU fan doesn't usually whine unless its broken or if it "howls" beauseits pushing too much air.

your cpu never makes any noise whatever... it has no moving parts, only electricity flowing through it basically. probably your power supply as has been suggested

Hmm... so do I have to be concerned about this or is it normal to just leave it? (Thanks for the quick replies btw.)

Concered.

It could damage it.

ANd if the capacitors are strained long enough it will cause them to be destoryed

I think this noise is probably coming from one of the capacitors next to the cpu. They buzz and whine at odd times on some boards.

Edit.....I would ram that motherboard if you can determine that the noise is coming from one of the motherboard caps.

I totally agree with these guys, it's not your cpu. It's your psu, or as said, sometimes a component on mobo's can whine or buzz. Like a few people with the asus commando, who experienced these noises. Some of them were able to mod and get rid of it. I've never heard a peep from mine though. You could try when you're hearing the noise, to maybe put your finger (touch your case to ground you first) on some of the components for a second, gently of course. You may be able to determine where it's coming from. Or also, have you put your ear up to your psu outtake, see if maybe it's coming from there. Sometimes it can be deceiving though where a sound is coming from, due to cavernous effects and how sound travels. But it's most deffinitely not you're cpu itself.
