iNDiCA024 Posted March 3, 2013 Share Posted March 3, 2013 I just bought a GS 700. I installed it and have noticed the chirping noise. It's hit or miss, but it does happen regularly... it sounds like a hard drive reading/writing at a higher pitch. Here is a youtbe link of exactly what mine is sounding like: It appears it is the fan trying to kick on and not being able to keep it's rotation going. I have tried everything in the sticky (I didn't see any of those power saving settings in my BIOS and nothing appeared to be set for power saving). I did force my nVidia Vsync to On (was on Application Controlled), which didn't help or hurt the problem. In looking at the fan when it does rotate, it appears to be off balance. I bought this at Best Buy, so I am going to attempt to exchange and try another unit. I will update this post once completed. If this is just how the power supply is, I will be buying another model/brand, as I cannot take this noise. When you have a gaming rig, your power supply shouldn't be the loudest hardware from the PC. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
