  • 700W Mushkin Joule Noise Issues?

    My friend is running a 700w Mushkin Joule PSU and he's noticed that every now and again when he first turns on his computer it is really noisy but if he reboots it will be back to normal.
    What could be causing this issue?



    Here is the PSU: http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=48432

    Noisy as in loud fan noise, fizzing or screeching?

      Pretty sure its noisy fans...
      Waiting for him to confirm that it is dust free/screwed in properly...

        If its noisy fans, theres a strong chance its either his CPU or GPU cooler making the noise as (depending on the cooler & gpu model) they can spin up on full for a few seconds until the system has posted, then they will reduce RPM.

        Some of the AMD 7-series cards do it as a dust-cleaning function too.

          That's what I thought at first tbh but he's convinced that its the PSU. He's running an AMD 6-series card, do they have that cleaning method too?

          Cheers for the help.

            Not that I am aware of but I could be mistaken.

            Ask him to take out the graphics card and switch the machine on without the side panel on. He should be able to hear the location of the noise alot better.

              He's not very good when it comes to computers so I think I might have to pop around to his house and give it a listen myself... I've got him to download afterburner so he can check the GPU fan speed when it happens next.

              Turns out its coming from his graphics card.
