Weird noises coming from Silverstone OP750

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a Silverstone OP750 (750W) PSU and I have finally narrowed it down to the cause of some strange noises that have been coming from my PC lately.

I have had it since last July I believe and it has not given me problems. But after having my computer in a box for a few weeks (waiting for a MOBO transplant) I have resurrected the computer and since then it has been making strange noises. The noise is a faint "click click pop pop" of sorts.

I thought it was some fans or something but I finally narrowed it down to the power supply. It is not the fan on the power supply. When the PC is shut down I even get this noise. When the PSU itself is shut down (switch turned to off on the PSU) it still makes the noise. The only time the noise stops is when I pull the power cord from the PSU altogether.

So is this a sign that my PSU is dying? I really do not want to go through this right now after being without my mobo and video card for 2 weeks and just now having to RMA my new memory. I hope Silverstone has a good warranty.

Sounds like the regulator switch might be going bad

I would RMA that PSU before it fry's a couple components
