    Hello, Im getting a nasty noise from my pc at start up, never on restart. Ive had the cover off and tested the PSU but its fine ,also replaced fan on heatsink, it made no difference. Its definitley coming from the heatsink or CPU, very odd. Luckily I have a new motherboard bundle waiting for Xmas! Everything backed up. Cheers.:confused:

    Stop each fan in the system one at a time. Use something like a coffee stir stick to hold the fan blades. Insert the stick before you pw ON not after.
