Been a fair while since my last post Glad to be back!
At approx. this time last year i built the system found in my sig. All things are going well except i am concerned about the reliability of my PSU. I purchased A cooler master 700W PSU which i thought was a decent PSU to power the components in my system ( i like to have a little overhead so not to overload the PSU). The concern i have is that when i start anything intensive i.e gaming or 3D Solid Modeling the PSU begins to make a high pitched whine. Its quite loud and rather annoying even when watching a DVD.
I understand that at times electronic components do this but should i be concerned? At the end of the day i spent approx $3,000 Australian dollars on this machine when the i7 was just released and i am more than happy to spend more on replacing the PSU if it means that the computer will be protected. I am also running a power filtered surge board.
Anyone have any opinions on Cooler master Power Supplies?
Anyone have a favoured brand? Why?
Also in the near future i will be upgrading my graphics card to something with DX 11 so im thinking i might as well purchase somehting with a bit of grunt to be able to handle SLI if thats where i want to go. Im thinkning somehwere between 850 - 1000W?
Thankyou for your opinions.
