My PSU sings??

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've been using my sig rig for nearly 4 years and since a week or so, i've been hearing loud whistling sounds from my psu and am also experiencing crashes(no BSOD's but just a screen pause)...i doubt two things one of which is my RAM(two of whose golden contacts got burnt about two years ago->still worked fine) and now, i doubt it as my PSU...what do you guys say??

It might be crapping out; if the voltages drop below what's acceptable, the system might crash. I'd replace it with a higher wattage one from a well known company.

Sounds like it's going bad, I'd replace it ASAP, you don't want it taking anything else with it when it goes.
BAM!

i doubt youll get more than 220
but if you already have someone wanting it for your price your all set

btw, you should replace it before selling it, or they will force you to give a refund when it fries within a week or 2 of them having it

as everyone is saying its the psu, not the ram

the problem lies there my friend, the warranty periods of all my parts are over(except for my HDD and Processor)....and second, my CPU fan is broken and i've modded it with a 92mm fan and its just running fine(since you said the PSU is the problem)...and what about my processor running 50C at load???.....my motherboard reports its critical temp as 60c.....any chances of my processor being the culprit??

Running games demands more power from your PSU, it is going bad, replace it ASAP.
