I am in a quandary here. I recently posted a topic regarding a high pitched noise coming from my hard drive... Which I thought was this issue, however, I was wrong.
So, with that, I am back again to restate my problem knowing full well what it is now.
I just got done putting my computer together less than a month ago... Everything I purchased was brand new from www.newegg.com.
Anyway, the high pitched noise that I am hearing is definitely coming from my Power Supply Unit.
Which is a:
1.) CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850W --- Corsair PSU
However, here is why I am stumped. I have used several Power supply calculators, and according to them the 850 wats of power that this unit gives is plenty for my system.
Also, the PSU does not make the high pitched noise when I am starting my computer up (Or when I am in BIOS). It only begins once I am at the Windows login screen, and inside of Windows.
In addition to this, I read some other forums regarding this issue and followed some of the provided steps to narrow down the issue (Of whether the PSU is faulty or not) and one of the
tips given told me to enter into Windows Safe mode w/ networking, and see if the PSU made the noise there.
Well, upon testing this for myself.. Once I was in Windows Safe mode w/ networking I could not hear the PSU making the noise that I have been hearing all along..
This leads me to believe that the PSU unit itself isn't faulty, but instead, that there is something in Windows (Normal Mode) that is causing this issue to arise.
Anyway, if anyone has any tips or helpful comments regarding this topic I would greatly appreciate them.
Thanks in advance,
