maybe this should have been put in the newcomers forum, but there
doesnt seem to many complete system posts in there so im starting here !
currently updating an evesham axis 1900+, this is whats done so far,
AMD ATHLON XP 1900+ / 2400+
ASUS HS / QX-70 HS
80GB MAXTOR / 120GB MAXTOR DIAMOND 9
512MB / 1GB RAM
STOCK 250W PSU /Q-TECHNOLOGY 350W PSU
COOLER MASTER / STEALTH FAN + FAN MATE
HERCULES 8500LE 64MB / ASUS 9200SE 128MB
STOCK CASE / ACUSTIPACK DELUXE
hit a slight hitch with the above, the psu was purchased before i had chance to read the info on these boards !, and its fan/air noise was silent, but the coil whine was terrible, so i have sent it back after only one day of use, they assured me it shouldnt make that noise and are going to replace it, but im not convinced !
should i save the bother of receiving another unit and try another brand ?
dont mind a bit of air noise (no more than a controlled case fan),
but coil noise is unacceptable for me, it was silent in bios but started to
whine in windows with pitch changes following every action,
a scroll of the mouse = burst of noise
a program = prolonged noise
im not into overclocking and never play hardcore games, so it doesnt need to take much strain.
can anyone help or advise with this ?
