Power supply fan noise only when computer gets hot. Why??
Posted on 2006-04-24
I have a pretty good fan cooling system for my computer and I also have a temperature gauge to monitor the inside of the case. Anyways, the normal day to day tasks temperature reads about 30 degrees. When I start playing CPU and graphic intensive games, of course, the heat goes up. About 37 degrees. At this temperature, the computer starts making noisy clicking sounds. It seems like it's coming from the power supply or the power supply fan. Upon quitting these games, the temperature lowers and the clicking sounds stops.
Does someone know of this and why it happens? How can I fix this?
My computer specs: Athlon 64 3500+, ASUS A8N-SLI, 500watt power supply, 1.5 GB RAM, Windows XP pro.
Thanks in advance. :)
