    My tower has started to emit a very low-noise hum when in standby. Could it be the power supply starting to go? I've got an ASUS M4A79 Deluxe board and a 600 watt PC Power And Cooling power supply. The hum may have been there all along since I built it last year but I've just now noticed it. I don't think it's one of those bad-sounding hums, but I just want to make sure.

    PC P and C power supplies are good quality units and should definitely last more than a year. It could be nothing more than dust build up on the Fan. Have you used Compressed air to clean out your system lately?
