HI guys,

My coin miners AX860 PSU seems to me making a Chirping/Zapping/BZZTing noise when I use the mouse/keyboard when the system is under load. I have never noticed this before. The system is about 1 month old.
The sounds happen more when I use the computer as it is under load. But they happen intermittently even when I am not.

CPU: AMD Sempron 145
Mobo: Gigabyte FX990-UD3
Ram: 4gb PC12800 Corsair Vengeance
GPUs: 2x MSI 270x, 1x Asus 280x
The 270x cards re running +100mhz over stock memory clocks.
The 280x is running 100mhz under stock memory clocks.
I have not played with voltage on anything.

This sound is rather defined when I do hear it. I'm worried that it will explode into a fiery calamity and incinerate my family as we sleep. Are my worries unfounded?

Thanks for your time!

Any kind of noise that is not electric sounding is never good

Any chance you can record the sound or make a video on youtube?

WAS THAT CLICK THE PSU?
EDIT: Sorry, but I would shut the system down instantly. Not worth risking the other parts.... That sounds like raw voltage jumping or something.... Like discharge
