So i know that this is a bit older stuff than you gentlemen over on these forums are used to, but the 20 year old PSU in my Compaq Deskpro now makes a peculiar "double click" when it shuts off, it sometimes even makes 3 clicks. I understand that there are some relays there but are they supposed to make a huge "CLICK CLOCK" sound when powering down? the PSU seems to be otherwise fine and dosent make any weird noices, apart from the possibly worn fan bearings. But even that noise could be coming from the CPU fan.
