    Default Asrock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 noises.


    I registered to see if someone here can help me with my problem.

    At first i will post my system specs:

    Processor: Intel i5 2500k
    Motherboard: Asrock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
    Cooling: Swiftech Apogee, 360 Xflow rad, Liang with XSPC res/pump top.
    Memory: 8Gb Mushkin 1600Mhz
    Video Card: Sapphire HD6950 2Gb
    Hard Disk: Western Digital Caviar 160 gb 8mb cache
    Optical Drive: Samsung Writemaster
    CRT/LCD Model: ASUS 25,5" wide VW266h (2ms)
    PSU: Corsair HX620 modular
    The motherboard, cpu, ram, gpu are new few weeks old, psu is about one year old but never had any problems on my previous system.
    Now my problem. The motherboard makes noises. Squealing, clicking, rattling on load. I also noticed a very low squeal when i move my mouse.
    About 3 weeks back i removed the hardware out of my case to check the origin of the noise. It comes from the cpu area. Placed everything back and the noise was gone. Happydance! But i bought a new waterblock for the cpu so i had to remove the parts from the case again. (Yeah i know, should have done it the first time). But after placing the hardware back the freaking noise was also back. Now it's even louder.
    I don't know what to do and it's driving me mad. I also read the other thread posted here, and many people say it's the capacitators making those noises.

    Would be nice to get some info on what to try or do.

    Thanks for your time,

    check all your cables,keep them away from gpu and cpu area,most common cause of this noise is the psu interfering with the cpu power saving states its a very common issue accross all boards and all platforms inc my board x58

    heres just an example,but it happens on any manufacturer and mb platform
