    Recently hearing strange noises from my PSU... its like a fan hitting some sort of paper but it sounds more like electrical...
    I checked the PSU fan and all the other fans, there's nothing blocking or in the way of all the fans... Then I tried removing my gpu then turned the comp on... the noise was gone... it seems that the gpu is causing the noise from the psu...
    What should I do now? RMA it? or Tolerate it since nothing serious is happening yet?

    I could still use my comp normally, play games, watch movies, etc.... but that noise is kinda annoying...

    PS could be going bad. Noise could be coming from capacitors or coils when PS is hot.

    Contact your supplier.
    They will take you through any tests and will RMA if necessary.
    If they dont make sense, let us know.
