Now, nobody seemed interested in it when I posted on the building thread. Maybe it was because I was in the wrong thread, maybe it's because it was as long as the bible. Nonetheless I never got a response like I used to when I came here years ago. Anyway, I'll try to make it short and sweet this time.
My build uses the Corsair CX500, and I THOUGHT it was fault due to all the batcrap crazy sounds it was making. Moaning, whirring, buzzing, clicking, croaking. Then I switch to one of the "newer" outlets in my house and bam, the only sound I still hear is whining, which might just be my refurb gpu.
My question is, will an ungrounded outlet REALLY cause problems like that? My dad had his Gateway plugged into the same outlet for 8 years! (Which may explain why it acted up as it got older, or may not.)
Another question is IF my PSU truly WAS making these sounds and doing this crazy thing where I wake up and my rigs blinking on and off (Front fan, side mobo light, speakers),
If bad power actually causes things to go wrong,
How many bad reviews are due to people using an outlet that had a shoddy wiring job done on it?
I know we can't get a realistic number but I'd imagine the amount of people claiming a faulty drive, is actually due to their own house hating them, is amazing.
I'd love to hear anyone's opinion. Maybe anyone who works in or just knows/learned about electrical can comment?
Thanks everyone for your time
