  1. Thanks all. Definately something for me to think about. I HAD tried the 'put a penicil in each fan' idea... which is why I am targetting the PSU. Appreciate the suggestions above. Thanks again. MIB
  2. I recently built 2 new identical PC's using the configuration listed in my Sig. However I am very disappointed in the 'fan' noise I still hear. To date I have replaced the onboard Fan and the Graphics card Fan thinking that was the problem. It wasn't. I decided to try a stop and listen test to identify the culprit by temporarily halting each fan for a second to see if the noise went away. It didn't. This has led me to believe it must be my PSU. I have looked around the websites and found this: Nesteq Semi-Fanless ASM PSU, 520W. Can any one tell me if these are good for the MoBo I have? Thanks MIB
  3. I have recently rebuilt my PC as per my sig, however I am a little dissappointed with the noise it makes....fans etc... I am looking for a recommended Chipset Fan if it proves that is the cause of the noise. I am replacing the G/Card fan with a VF900-CU Quiet Dual Heatpipe VGA Cooler, as this may be the main culprit. Any suggestions?
  4. Also all 4 power connecters are connected: Floppy Drive Power Hard Disk Drive Power ATX power +12v Power
  5. I did switch the card out with the working PC. Got the same results, so can rule the card out.
  6. Power supply is a 520w Colorsit Switching Power Supply. Came with the case. As to GA Card its Inno3D GeForce nVidia 7900GT PCI-E 256MB GDDR3 Card. I'll update my sig with that....
  7. Hi all, No doubt you are sick of seeing this problem arise here. I have read through the site and haven't been able to nail down the problem with my system... I am leaning towards RMA unless something I have missed appears.... History: I upgraded my original PC with the specs listed in my sig. In fact I bought 2 of everything, so I could match my kids PC to mine... One is up and running fine, but the other: ZIP. On power on, the system LEDs count down to just having 1 displayed then the long beep followed by 2 short beeps (it maybe 1 long and 3 short beeps but they are pretty close), then the fan slows and stops. I haved cleared CMOS to no affect (effect?). Tried the minimum install, moving RAM around etc to no avail. Even tried the idea of swapping Graphics card and RAM with working machine to rule them out.... they all work fine in the first PC. The second one still repeats the problem. Moved the GA Card to another slot and stil ZIP. Any last minute suggestions? I am leaning HEAVILY to a MOBO issue on the Graphics Card interface.... Appreciate any ideas to try....
