    Angry Asrock mobo making horrible noise

    Hi there, my Asrock G41M VS3 R2.0 makes a very sharp noise while it boots and whenever windows is loading something. The sound does not come from the fans but from the motherboard itself, I don't know exactly what causes the problem. And I doubt this sound is natural.

    Please help me out, so I can decide if I should return it to the store to get a replacement.

    I uploaded this video including the annoying sound I stated before.



    UPDATE1:

    The sound comes from the PSU, not by the fan, as I made stop on purpose, more likely an electric connection to me.

    UPDATE2:

    Finally purchased the new PSU (ATX 600W 8cm, Over voltage protection: + 3.3v, + 5v, + 12v). Not a single sharp irritating noise, only the smooth sound of fans doing their job, I'm so glad! Thanks a bunch everyone, this forum was very helpful to pinpoint the issue.

    Here's a capture, I hope this PSU lasts longer than the old one.

    its not the motherboard!!!! its your psu,very common problem with all motherboards,go in bios and disable intel speedstep or eist c1e c3/c6 states then see if noise still happens

    you need to change to another brand of psu that doesnt make the noise,its caused by electrical interference(emi) by the cpu power saving

    That's so weird, my PSU didn't have that problem before I replaced the motherboard. The mobo I used before was intel socket too.

    Take you motherboard out and test on the bench. Then you can pinpoint the issue much better. I couldn't tell much as there was so much background noise. disable all of the fans. What make and model is power supply?

    Make sure everything is unplugged except essentials (monitor, video, keyboard, mouse)

    Is that an emachines computer?

    Good luck

    @MarkJohnson You couldn't tell??? The sound is sharp, like tiny sparks (you can't miss it), the rest are just fans.

    I just switched to my HTPC rig and now I can hear it much better on my stereo system. It does sound like the power supply. I would run it anymore until you borrow or buy a Power supply to test with. I do however recommend a bench test to help pinpoint the problem. Even take off the power supply cover and inspect the insides for any caps leaking black goop all over. It sounds like one leaked all the oil and the coil inside is vibrating making the noise. Just be careful. If that power supply goes out, it may take out your motherboard, cpu, memory, and everything else with it.

    Did you find out the Make and Model of your power supply?

    Good luck

    Comfirmed, the sound comes from the PSU, not by the fan, as I made stop on purpose, more likely an electric connection to me.

    VERY BAD SUGGESTION!!
    You will instantly void your power supply's warranty if you remove the the outer casing.
    You risk getting a serious electrical shock from the stored electrical charge that remains for quite a while after you have unplugged your psu.
