    Question My PSU makes a soft humming/buzzing noise. Cause for concern?

    It's hardly noticeable, but if you listen for it, you can hear it. It becomes more apparent when you put your ear directly next to the unit. It doesn't really fluctuate in pinch like coil whine, it's more just a constant hum. It seems to change slightly under load, but I can't tell for sure. I'm...

    Question Need help with new power supply please

    Hi, I currently have a Cooler Master MasterWatt 550W and it has really bad coil whine. I have read this model is common for coil whining. I’m not sure if it’s because I have it paired with a RX590 or what it is. Can anyone recommend a good PSU. My budget is around $100 thanks

    [SOLVED] Msi Gtx 1050ti coil whine

    My graphics card outputs a fairly audible coil whine noise on idle from around a meter away. What would be the cause of this? poor quality components on the card? or just age?
