Sounds like a motherboard or GPU problem rather than a PSU problem.

My laptop whines and screeches like crazy when I turn it on.
I know exactly what it is, have had my old PSU opened & a tube next to the coils & caps with my ear up against.

Is what was causing this to happen was the hard thing to work out.

I should have swapped the SSD earlier & would have found out a lot quicker, but 'assumed' it was my GPU causing the problem.

Now all I can do is try & RMA the SSD & or replace it. If I have to, go back to a velicoraptor.

I get lots of Coil whine on my Tagan PSU - has always done it - and with all my GPUs - from a 4890, 570, 480 etc - different pitches with different cards and different levels of load

I get more - or more annoying coil whine when the graphics card is running at high frame rates, and yes its definately the PSU - and again did it with all of the graphics cards

I'm guessing flash could be using some form of 3d acceleration, and the GPU may be seeing it as very high frame rates, thus causing the whine

Yes Buck is very frustrating, and interesting youve had it with different set ups. Is this with the same processor?

I know its the SSD now causing my issues I swapped it for an old drive I had & the whine disappeared.

I tried replacing the PSU again today & no difference. (3 PSU's)

Only options now is go back to normal hard drives, which would be a big come down or try an Intel set up & sell my AMD, maybe the CPU change might sort the problem..

Basically I am desperate & willing to try anything.
