[SOLVED] New power supply is making weird noise

Listening again it sounds like coil whine, which is often the case with cheaper power supplies. But like I say, doesn't sound to me like it's going to do anything bad at this point. Definitely factor in an upgrade fairly soon if you can though, because that's all you'd need for now. Rest of the system looks okay if you're happy with its performance, which I expect you are.

I'd say so, just a slightly noisy fan. Doesn't sound like it's about to do something bad. I would look to upgrade it at some point though given you have a 30 series card, you want something of decent quality running that. Maybe something to save for over a few months, but certainly worth doing for long term peace of mind.
