    Gigabyte 2060 Super, fans keep turning off and on

    Hey everyone, So back in 2019 I bought my stepson a 2060 Super, the GeForce® RTX 2060 SUPER™ GAMING OC WHITE 8G (the all caps edition apparently) It has worked well for him, but it is has slowed him down lately and it was time for an upgrade. So, as is customary in this house, I am now down...

    PowerColor Hellhound RX 7900 XTX spectral white - noise

    I just got this today and I installed it. It works fine but I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing the small noise under a heavy load? I put it under heavy stress (heaven benchmark) and it starting making an annoying noise. The noise is kind of hard to explain but I've slightly read...

    SSD Sounding Like Hard Drive When Tested in Samsung Magician

    When tested Samsung EVO 850 emits whirring and low-pitched noises akin to those that hard drives make. Noise doesn't come out of speakers but from within laptop's chassis. I didn't have this problem with other SSDs.

    Seagate Exos X10 Constant Seek Noises at Idle?

    So, here is a little bit of an unusual one (at least for me) I've been running large storage arrays for years, but never encountered this one before. I am one by one replacing my old 10TB Seagate Exos X10 ST10000NM0016 drives in my main storage server with newer, larger 16TB Seagate Exos X18...

    Hard drive makes noise and is not recognized

    Hello, I haven't used my hard drive for over a year. It was in my cabinet all that time. It's a 2.5 inch hard drive from laptop that I put into external closure and connected with 2 split USB cables (one is data and another is power) It makes some weird noise and is not recognized in Windows...

    Pump Vibration Isolation

    So, The main reason I went with a custom water loop a couple of years ago (build thread here) was because I longed for a no-compromise solution. I wanted the best overclock I could get, with absolute silence. I know this was never going to be fully achievable at load, but I figured during...

    Gigabyte RTX 2080 Windforce - Weird fan noise

    My gpu makes that noise in the first fan but only with a low speed, if I leave my computer horizontally, it does not make any noise regardless of the speed of the fan. It only happens vertically, and it does not seem to have any bad adjusted fan. I do not have any problem with the gpu, it works...

    Server needs better cooling - What options?

    As the title says I did the (probably big) mistake of buying 2 x Supermicro SC825 TQ-R740LPB 2U chassis. One at the moment is equipped with a X9DR3-F (one socket not working, I will probably need to check for bent pins) and the other with a X9DR3-LN4F+ (both sockets working). Both boards are...

    How often do you replace your case fans?

    I upgraded my case about a year ago and transferred over a few fans I had in the old one - so currently have 2 stock fractal 140mm fans and 2 cooler master 120mm fans in the case, plus 1 stock cooler master CPU fan.. that means 3 out of 5 of the fans are about 7 years old. I do blow the dust...

    Hi guys, I thought about posting this in the NCase M1 thread but decided to open a new thread instead... I'm in the market for a new GPU and have decided on a GTX 1070. My build is in an NCase M1 so I'm not sure which of the many available models of 1070 would suit me best. I know that...

    Help w/Audio interference from Graphics card

    Hello there, After days of googling and trying out different solutions I've come to a dead end.

    Old seagate barracudas making siren like noises

    I've put together the new system recently and salvaged my 2 old drives. ST3320620AS Barracuda 7200.10 if I remember correctly. Maybe they made such noises before but I couldn't hear it in the chassis. They make a siren like squeaks (not like those loud siren ones you can usually read about). I...

    Noise test suggestion

    I've had a quick check of a couple of video card reviews and they don't detail the audio setup. So I've got a suggestion for an additional noise test I'd like you to do if you're not already doing it: how loud the GPU is to bystanders when playing games. The noise of playing a game is going to...

    Another "For the love of god help me get rid of buzzing/mic noice!" thread

    So, I have quite a lot of noise on my microphone and to not annoy those I talk with I'd really like to fix it. Sadly I have no idea how. The noise is either from all the stuff I have connected in my living-room or from the power outlet as it is a problem in both my PC and my PlayStation 4 (same...

    xfx pro 650w noisy

    I've had xfx pro 650w for 2 years and it was fine, recently it gets really noisy, especially when playing games, it's by far noisier than the r9 380 fan at 50%. It's noisy also when using the integrated hd4600 meaning it's not stressed in any way, there could be something wrong with the fan...
