Ok so this is a weird one. I'm used to troubleshooting things like this one myself, but now i'm rather stuck.
Just bought a new PC with RTX 2080 & Ryzen 7 2700X. All good, runs smooth and rather cool. While gaming i have heard a weird buzzing noise coming from my PC. I tried to locate the sound and it seems that it might be coming from the PSU (all components are new).
Here comes the weird part: I tried reproducing it instead of having it show up randomly by stress testing my CPU and GPU at the same time. I figured if its a PSU problem while gaming then it should show up while stress testing (especially since no game has challenged my CPU & GPU at the same time so far). Ran it for about 10-15 minutes. No buzzing.
The noise can also be heard very briefly (and at a lower volume so to speak) randomly. Last night i was watching a movie, it heard a low buzz and its not the first time. Now i'm in a game (ATLAS) and SOMETIMES it starts buzzing.
Any tips on how i could troubleshoot this ? All temps are fine, no PC freeze, no BSOD, no errors at all of any kind, yet the buzzing sound is there.
I must add that i just bought a UPS because i needed it and i also thought it might be because of my houses electricity "bouncing" (not very good at electrical stuff). Nothing changed.
I also managed to record it here -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7O7np_p6fU
You can also hear the fans, but the sound cant be missed (also a bit louder since i was recording near the source).
Any tips? Thanks!
P.S: Not sure if the
hardware-failure tag is fine since nothing failed so far, but i'm unsure what to use.
Edit: Forgot to mention, i checked task manager while in-game when it started buzzing. Nothing was even near 100% and my HDD was at 1% (the one the game is on).
Edit2: Added voltages.
Edit: Finally found the source of the buzzing! Its the GPU, but its not a fan. I think its the GPU case that is buzzing. After 3 days i managed to get the buzzing while my case panel was off. I tried slowing down one of the fans, the buzzing stopped while my finger was slowing the fan. Then i tried another fan, same thing. And then FINALLY i simply touched the plastic case on my GPU and the same outcome -> buzzing stopped.
From this i assume my GPU case is actually buzzing due to FAN vibrations ? My card doesnt seem to be 100% in place in the PCI slot (its rather big), but i dont think that has anything to do with it (its a not a perfect line so to speak). Any tips on how to fix the buzzing now ? I'm attaching a picture of my GPU for ref.
You can see that its not perfectly aligned if you look at the MB port. By touching the case and it stopped i mean the grey case part on the GPU that you can see in the pic (bottom of GPU).
