I have a brand new computer (sig rig) and I have had a few issues with it. I have asked on one of my groups forums, and one of the guys suggested it might be my PSU.
My problem is, that I am hearing like a surging noise coming from the tower. Im not entirely sure if it is from the CPU though. I have had this issue for a while now, and has happened quite a few times. Today I went to save a picture, and my computer made a noise (I guess kinda like a buzz) for a second, then the computer froze for roughly 10 seconds. Not the first time that happened. After I saved the picture (this happens quite a bit) I started to get surging sounds from the tower. Ive noticed if I hit the top of my case, it stops, but this still happens quite frequently. Now with my Sig rig, Dell gave me a 425w PSU. The only thing I have done, is added the Razer Barracuda sound card. I was told that it may be the PSU getting a little overworked. All 5 of my USB ports are in use for various things, and occasionally I have my X52 joystick plugged in the front. Before I start to A) try this without my sound card, and B) swap to a 550W, I would like to know what anyone else can say about my issue.
