  1. I am marking this thread as solved. I couldn't bare worrying that something might be wrong with my power supply, even know I had been told clearly by those who clearly know more than me about it that it is fine. I ended up getting a replacement, and low and behold it has the exact same sound. Lesson learned, listen to what you're told and don't always give in to anxiety haha. Thought it would be worth me sharing my experience just in the case someone else has a similar concern as well. It's normal, just like I was told!
  2. Okay, that's relieving. I didn't notice it on the older version of the power supply I had, so I got a bit worried. Thank you. Thank you for clarifying, has given me a strong sense of relief. And yes, I get very paranoid about this sort of stuff. I am diagnosed with OCD so that is probably why.
  3. I can confirm that I definitely did notice a completely different internal with the older one I had. This may be the reason for the new sound I have noticed. Was just hoping I could get some clarification on it, perhaps someone else has a similar model.
  4. So I just got a new replacement Corsair RM 650x power supply which seems to be working completely fine, apart from this strange sound I am noticing when turning the PC on or shutting it down. The best way to describe it is like a switch inside the power supply switching on/off accordingly. I am not touching the actual power supply switch, so I am not sure what this is. Could someone please clarify for me whether this is normal or not? I have attached a couple of videos of the sound when turning on the PC and turning it off. In the on clip, the first sound is just the button on the PC to turn it on. The second sound in the clip is the one from the power supply. On.mp4 Off.mp4
  5. So just to confirm, it is normal then? The main reason I am worried is because I don't recall noticing this prior to recently. But with that, I am not 100% sure. I just feel as though I would have noticed in the past. And I have been turning it off every night by the switch because I was not aware of the BIOS setting for the RGB lighting. Since yesterday I will now only shut it down regularly every day without switching the power supply off. So that is not a worry no more. So now it's just me worrying about this crackling and whether or not the continuous switching of it somehow wore it down and caused this.
  6. Because I was stupid and didn’t know about a simple BIOS setting, for the past year I have been switching my PC off by the power supply everyday so I don’t see the RGB lighting at night. Recently I have noticed that when I flick the power supply switch off, I hear crackling/static from the switch area. It is more noticeable if I flick the switch slowly, but can still be heard most of the time. I don’t know if it has always done this or not, I’ve only just noticed it and I feel as though I would have noticed it earlier if it had always been like this. Is it possible that I have worn down the switch from using it so often over the past year? Or is this normal? I am considering submitting an RMA for it for a replacement, but am not sure if I even need to do that. The power supply is a Corsair RM650X Gold by the way. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  7. Just gave that a go but still no luck.
  8. Just gave it a go, but unfortunately it did not make any difference.
  9. Just an update in regards to the stutter when loading Facebook. It seems to only happen if there is a video at the top of the feed and it starts to play automatically. Around this time, it stutters for a split second. If there are no videos at the top and instead just photos, the stutter does not occur. I have tried turning hardware acceleration off in Google Chrome, but it did not resolve this issue.
  10. I just found another way to reproduce the stutter. Simply by loading my Facebook feed and moving my mouse around as it loads in, after a couple of seconds of the feed becoming visible a stutter occurs. I have checked the event log and cannot see any issues in there.
  11. It is an ASUS card and I don't use any software or tools for the graphics card so that wouldn't be an issue. As for the HPET option, I checked your guide and found that the option isn't showing on my computer, so I don't think it has that option. So I monitored my GPU speeds and temperatures and couldn't see any issues or changes when the stuttering occurs, though I will continue to monitor it just to be sure. I did perform a stress test on the graphics card and my computer ran fine with no crashes or noticeable issues, so that is just another reason that is leaving me confused as to the cause of this problem. You stated some raytracing features were backported around this time. Is there some way I can disable these features or something? I notice these stutters when I am not playing any games, so I'm not sure how else I can ensure it is not caused by an issue with the graphics card.
  12. Exhausting myself of ideas at this point. Have brought this up here before on the Linus Tech Tips Discord and have received help from other uses which I very much appreciate. But I am still experiencing the same issue so just want to see if anyone else has any ideas. For several months now I've been experiencing completely random stutters which I notice as my cursor freezes and jumps ahead slightly for a split second of time. Any audio that is playing is not affected at all, I just notice it from my screen. It seems to occur while running any program, I even notice it on the Windows 10 login screen occasionally when I start my computer up and move my cursor before typing in my password. Other times it's on Google Chrome browsing Facebook, on Discord, etc. Weird thing is I can reproduce the exact same sort of stutter simply by launching the Netflix app, or loading Netflix in my browser. It might be when some sort of network activity occurs, but I am not entirely sure. I noticed that if I turn my second monitor off, the stutter does not occur at all, or at least not as bad. I have tried everything. Updating BIOS and all drivers, monitoring hardware load and temperatures, stress testing, reinstalling Windows... etc. I did notice that rolling back to Nvidia graphics driver v419.17 seems to stop the stuttering completely or to a degree where I don't notice it, which is quite strange. It is also worth noting that this computer is less than a year old, with all brand new high end components, so I didn't expect this sort of thing to happen. I would very much appreciate any assistance. If anyone has any questions for me to help understand the issue, please let me know.

  13. So it's because of my high download speeds that is causing it? Is there anything I can do to fix it or is this normal behavior?
  14. In what way exactly? I have probably the best most stable internet I can get in Australia.
