      so say -10% output tops if its been on a lot.

      are you sure you are not over loading one of the rails?

          just looking and if its one of the newer core models they are single rail

          if its your mate who built it idk how well you would be able to test the psu with the hdd running but out of the case just to check if it that making the noise

              well i rang my m8 up, and all of my hard drives are running of one rail, the case, which is a thermaltake level 10 gts, is a quick release hard drive trays, which have all sata leads together inbuilt, so it is all one wire. could that be my problem ?

                  I wouldn't want to disparage the folks at the Aria shop, but you do realise that they are there to sell stuff.

                  The default setting will be to shift another box. Maybe that is what you want to do anyway.

                  There are on-line reckoners that will work out how much oomph you need. But do note that they are also sales tools, likely to overestimate how much you should spend.

                  If the only issue is the noise, why get your nickers in a twist?

                    it is noisey which drives me mad, if i wanted a loud pc, i would of bought cheap parts, but nothing is cheap inside, thats why i want it quite, and running fine, and the other point is i cant run 4 hard drives at once

                      Noisy is nasty. I hate that.

                      Which is why I have passive graphics cards with crap specifications.

                      But the noises I hear are not that worrying if it is just disks and fans. Maybe my hearing is fading.

                      You seem to have eliminated the PSU. I would play around with the physical bits. Screws, mounts and what have you. You might be surprised by how much you can find by just putting a bit of pressure on the drives. They can suddenly go quiet on you, fingering the "grommets" as an issue.

                      Think physical before you spend any money.

                        see now you name your case i am back to thinking its vibration noise. a couple of moving parts is all it would take to get it humming.

                        some small rubber grommets for the hdd and fans might be all you need to fix it. if it is your psu loop 3dmark for a while and that should make it crash tbh and then you would know

                            Can you record a video of the noise?
