psu:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... got it from superbiiz

had it for 8 months just started making this noise..on start up it will make it for about 5 seconds sometimes not at all and then stop..

but when i play games like Tera the cpu usage goes to 50-60 and the noise will come back.
after i quit the game and let it sit idle for 10-20 minutes it'll stop

The power supply should not be making that noise. (or any noise except for the fan air movement)


It may or may not continue to function correctly, but when I come across strange PSU noises I always replace the component before it leads to further issues.
