Well in so far as it makes a PSU like mine go crazy, I'll try that too, so far hitman gets 1700-1800fps in menu and makes my PSU do the kettle whine

Google brought me here. I'm glad it did.

I noticed my PSU whining today after unplugging my machine to install some SSDs into a 5.25'' bay. I would test the whining by logging into Diablo 3 and playing. Within seconds of warping to an area and fighting, the whining would start.

I have a modular Corsair PSU, so I figured perhaps a fuse with the slot I had my cable plugged into was bad, so I moved the cable to no avail. I unplugged the cable I had added, still whined. I unseated my PSU to verify it was the issue and not my GPU. I installed the program the OP linked, ran it for about 5 mins, the whining stopped, and I just played a little bit of Diablo 3 and no whine smile.gif

Literally before a few hours I've fixed the terrible demonic loud coil whine sound my brand new Hiper PSU was making.

I started banging my head where that come from.

I guess my presumption that it's from newly installed hardware got me in the right direction.

I've removed my new NZXT Fan controller and the coil noise is completely, 100% gone.

I don't know if that has anything to do with it but my fan controller made my LED fans to flicker non-stop.

Good luck. thumb.gif

You have a solid system there, but I would seriously question your power supply if you experience rebooting during stress tests. That is not a good sign, especially if you aren't even overclocking anything.

If it's not hot enough to hurt when you touch it, then it's very cool. - TwoCables

What do I replace

Should this be a worry for my other components because in a few months I will be upgrading the PSU and Motherboard
