Normally I just hear the normal hum of the power supply and fans spinning plus the occasional HD grinding or CD spinning.
Well, recently I have been hearing what sounds like a fan quickly slowing down, reversing, and spinning back up. This whole process takes about 2 seconds, from spin down to spin up. It also makes my computer go completely quiet when it is at the bottom of the spin down and ready to (what sounds like) reverse itself. This sudden silence makes me think it's the PS since it makes the most noise normally. It will all happen when the computer is either idle or in operation, it doesn't matter. It is not consistant either.
Could it be my power supply fan or the PS in general? Maybe the video card fan? I don't know but it's freakin me out!
Is there a way to test the power supply, case fans, video card and/or Aquagate for malfunctions?? If I need to open my case and sit there staring and waiting for something visual, I will.
