I'm not sure what section to post this in, but it seems to be effecting the power supply the most so here it goes. A couple weeks ago, I started folding and my power supply started making a screeching sound, and it went away a couple days later. Just a few days ago a couple buddies came over and i loaded up Codename Eagle (old game, but hilariously fun) to play over the LAN, and same deal, but even louder. The weird thing is, newer games like Unreal 3 and BF2142 run just fine with noise to be heard. Crysis will make the sound only in the menu. I'm really stumped. My 8800GT also made the sound a few days after I installed it (it would only make the sound running the cube in ATITool), but it seems to have disappeared as well. I don't think my power supply is being overworked, as I only have one optical drive, one hard drive, 2gb of ram (@1.8v) and my 8800GT. I didn't have the problem with my 7600GT or 7950GT, so i'm leaning toward the power supply, but i have 29 amps on 2 rails which is more than sufficient, right? I'm really stumped here.
