1000HX Electrical Noise

Recommended Posts

I just replaced my power supply with a 1000HX, and the first thing i noticed was that i could hear an electrical whine through my headphones. I have no idea if this is related to the power supply, but i did not have this problem until i changed power supplies. I did a fresh intall and wiped the cmos just in case it was something there, but the problem persists. Anything i do, such as moving the mouse over internet links, or changing songs in a player produces electrical hiss. It is also present in games, but difficult to hear over gunfire. Could this be power supply related? (Its also not the headphones)

I would suggest plugging the PSU directly into the wall and see if you still have the same issues. Also, do you only have any problems when you are not running a 3D application? Do you have an add in sound card or do you use the onboard sound?

Plugging power supply directly into wall does not help. Still getting electrical hiss.

 

If it is loud enough to be bothersome and you are sure that the noise is coming from the PSU, then lets get it replaced. Please use the On Line RMA Request Form and we will be happy to replace it. Be sure to check the box that says “I've already spoken to Technical Support and/or RAM Guy.”
