GA-M61P-S3 Making a hissing, sorta high pitch noise?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Any other owner of this board makes a hissing (not that loud but noticeable as it is somewhat high pitch), electrical/high pitch noise?
Or any other mATX board owners who use the IGP?

It's not a loud noise per se but it's similar to those high pitch PSU that gets to your head with the electrical frequency sound.

Nukie, does this "hissing" sound occur at idle or full load?

Good luck

Nukie, I've worked with that same GA board and did not remember hearing any hissing. All though I did not test it at full load so I couldn't confirm that. Perhaps maybe there is a component on the board that is lacking quality. Is the motherboard still within warranty?

Good luck
