Hello!
I bougt good pc part by part in hope i can play every game i want, but it is not that right. After 15 mins of using the pc it starts to slow down, lagging. It laggs too oftenly and when it laggs it have sounds from psu at the same moment, Cpu, gpu, ram usage/temp all okay. And i cant turn off my coputer with command, only with the power button.
Maybe the psu is bad? Before i buy a new i want to be sure. Thanks for your time!

Yes, your assumption is maybe correct.

Audible sound from a PSU that obviously corresponds with some problems with decrease of overall functioning - I'll put the cause on either:
  • PSU itself.
  • Malfunction on some compoents on the motherboard, and then the voltage regulators (those thick integrated circuits - mostly with 3 legs - placed close to inductors and capacitors) in particular.
  • Physical damage on a major component (CPU/GPU, etc) that in turn cause the power consumption to rise close to to above the PSU (or the voltage regulators on the mainboard) maximum ratings.

Even though the Raidmax Cobra is a garbage PSU, this is not a PSU problem. Sounds like a motherboard problem. Maybe do try a BIOS update.

I have the latest update. 2019-11-05. It was updated after the windows install, is that okay?

Latest is okay. Made sure if there were necessary steps to go through you did? Some AMD motherboard makers ask to update chipset drivers first, which is always good to do, and might even require to install an in between bios.

It was not my psu, the problem still egsist, after a psu change.
What psu did you change to?

Might also be motherboard problem.
