  • PSU fan going bad?

    Hi all,

    I recently (march "14) replaced a Micro-ATX power supply in my shuttle pc, the PSU, an ARIAnet 500w micro-atx PSU, is now starting to chirp.
    If I place my hand on top of the case, the chirping continues, a quick tap sorts it out for a while before it starts again, usually on cold boot.

    Is this a sign something is about to go, and if so, what can I do about that, because this PSU is no longer stocked and was only bought in march.

    Chirp?

    Sounds like it could be a loose fan?

      Sounds like it, I'll have to wait and see.
      Any recommendations on better quality power supplies?

      Edit.. looks like I'm in for a PSU and case upgrade if this PSU does go south.. does no-one stock Micro ATX PSU's anymore??

      Edit 2.0
      Sodit, I'm gonna upgrade anyway. My shuttle case just doesn't lend itself to being a good server case XD, only have one drive bay being a major limitation.
