When i run stuff that's graphics intensive,my computer starts making a warning sound. The second i quit these games the sound stops.
I'm running stuff like bioshock,half life 2 episode 2 and nfs carbon both on max and low settings and experience no lag or sluggishness in both, its just that irritating sound.
I do use silver thermal paste on the heatsink and the temps seem ok.
I'm postin a shot of them anyway.
I use the following
Intel Q6600 2.4.GHz, Asus P5NE Sli, XFX 8800GTS 640MB, Cosair 2 x 1GB ddr2
and a CoolerMaster 500W PSU .
The sound i hear is different from the sound made when i don't plug the 6 pin connector into my graphics card. A friend uses the same PSU for his 8800GTX which draws more power.
I'm thinkin it's either the psu or the cpu temps although both seem to be ok.
Any suggestions ??
Thanks in advance
