Noisy computer sound

In the last week I have noticed, especially when using video conversion software, that my PC is making a God awful noise. It doesn't seem to lead the PC to crash but seems like a worrying sound none the less. I rebuilt it to a Windows 7 build 64 bit about 2-3 months ago so I don't believe it could be this. When I pause the software, the noise stops but soon comes back when resuming. It seems hardware related to me as there are no errors in the Window's system logs. Any idea what could cause this as the PC's hardware is fairly new and I would hate it to be MOBO related.

Any ideas would be gratefully received.

Hi Space,

It seems the sound is heat related. When the processor is with heavy load, normal with demanding software like video conversion software it gets hot and the cpu cooler need to run faster to keep the CPU cool.

Did you assemble the computer your self? If you bought it on a store you should ask to check if everything is normal.

Hello space sapien

Are you using a HDMI port on a video card to connect to your display.

Can you provide us with the brand and model name or number details for the following items please;

Case
MB
Ram
Video card
PSU

It will also help if you tell us how many HDDs you have and whether or not you have any other add on cards fitted.

The PSU is a good quality brand and has ample output for your list of known components.

I would check your fans especially the CPU and GPU to see if they are worn. I had a cpu fan that only made noise when it goy hot. It needed to get to a certain rpm to cause wobble.
