Power Supply is making whistling sounds

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys--

 

I moved from my apartment recently and went to start up my computer today and nothing turned on. Not a single fan, light, nothing. Then I heard a faint squeeking or whistling sound coming from the PSU. Definetely sounds like the PSU got shooken up a bit. I checked all the cords, made sure everything was seated properly. What do you guys think? New PSU? It was an XCLIO 450.

If youve got a spare, definitely try that. Im pretty sure XCLIOs are re badged Antec which have been known to have leaky caps. If your stuff is no longer under warranty and you can pin the blame on the PSU I would carefully crack it open an have a look for anything suspicious.
