Psu buzzing underload and crash after a spike when loading

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I got this enermax 850w 80+ gold and it makes a buzzing sound underload NOT a whine. So after checking it's not a fan problem nor is it underpowered. So any idea how I can fix it? I can't rma it cause out of warrenty and Don't have the money for a new one. But it only happens in gaming cause both benchmark and mining runs fine even with 10% overclock. under a smooth high load it only buzzes but won't shut down but when a spike in load happens it shuts down with a click.

If you've just had a power spike and it caused damage to your power supply, then be glad it's your power supply and not the rest of your system.

With a damaged or defective power supply, don't chance it - replace it as soon as possible. That's not some tongue-in-cheek comment. A damaged or bad power supply can literally catch fire, torch your PC, and burn your house down, despite its initial quality. For an idea of how a bad power supply (or a good power supply that's defective) can wreak havoc on your system, just look at one of JonnyGuru's gutless wonders. Seriously.

Ok.

 

Words matter.

 

So, which Enermax PSU is this?  What graphics card?

 

If it's one with a double forward topology, the buzzing noise may be normal.

That's an ANCIENT (in computer part years) PSU.  Just replace it.

 

Probably.. what?  Seven years old?

Live with the problem? I guess some buzzing is not a big deal, so you can wait it out, it may break at some point, then you can replace it.

 

Or you can be done with it and spend 45$ to replace it now.

Nope.

 

Never cheap out on the PSU.

 

So you bought a used PSU that wasn't very good to begin with.  Live and learn.
