Hi,

Ryzen 5 1600 @3.7.
B350m Mortar.
16gb Corasir.
Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super.
Corsair RM650X.
Monitor: 27" 1440p 144hz.
Games played: World of Tanks, Witcher 3, Destiny 2.

Recently replaced my 1080 with a rtx 2070.

Reason being my 1080 died......warranty no good cos i had kraken g12 on it.

Now, the 1080 began making a slight buzzing noise under high fps, but i thought nothing of it and kept going. The buzzing became worse and in the end I ended up with game crashes and green lines and a death. Its with Asus now to see if they will do anything with it.

My new rtx 2070 super has begun doing the same buzzing. Gigabyte say this is normal but I have my fears that the same thing is happening as my 1080.

Should I begin swapping pats out to see if it is the PSU/moboard or just sit back and relax?

Thanks for listening.

It was only a single 1080 that has broken, and now my 2070 is having the same symptoms.

Amazon are sending a new 2070 out to me which is great. Just trying to figure out if it is the PSU.
The RM650X is only a couple of years old.
Maybe I should buy another one to test it.....

Can you recomend another PSU that would do the job solidly?
A 750W maybe?

Thanks.
