Is my PSU unable to provide more energy?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so my PSU is a Cooler Master Silent Pro M6 and I seem to run into a problem when I play high end games like COD :MW2.

So whenever I play COD, or any other high end games, the psu seems to be buzzing ( like a bad caps ) but when I exited the game to my desktop, it suddenly disappeared and when I go back in, it starts buzzin' again....

Should I RMA it ?
Or
Is this NORMAL??

or is my PSU unable to provide the power needed ??

With a single GTX 460 your load is <350w so unless that M600 is faulty, it should be just fine.

As for the buzzing, if it's loud then I would RMA it.

But if I use a multi plug extension, will it happen because a plug already shared energy with the monitor

i also am sharing a mutiplug with psu+speakers although mine psu does not make sound while gaming but in furmark i can hear a slight buzzing....so i also wanted to clear out whether sharing the psu plug inlet with something else has some adverse effect or not....and btw with a single gtx 460 a good 600 watt psu should not make any noise at all........i also have a gtx 460 that too hawk it eats more power than ur gtx 460 still i get no buzzing from my psu......so it might be that ur psu is not of good quality or it is a defective unit......
