Hi guys recently I started noticing this weird sound when turning off my computer.

I changed my psu to a better one about a month ago but I'm pretty sure this has nothing to do with it.

It's definitely the sound of something that got its power cut. It's a similar sound you get when a TV gets old. It pings or clicks as you kill the power.

Any ideas?

Big question - should I be worried

Hi thanks for your response.

Not it's only when the computer shuts down.

I removed the really old hardrive and just left my 2 SSDs and my WD 4TB HDD (about 1 year old) - and i still get the sound :(

Can I assume that it MUST be my 4TB hardrive?

This wouldn't be a noise from a fan or graphics card?

Hi guys,

So I have isolated the sound to the psu. It's a corsair 650w.

It was highly recommended on Amazon and forums.

This is really making me angry because I only bought this psu a month or so ago to replace an old faulty psu.

I've no idea how this could happen so quickly. Is it faulty or is that an OK sound for a psu?
