    Default Powersupply: Asus Z87 deluxe purchased from newegg in 2013

    I have now completed most of the hardware build of the computer noted in the signature below. The computer is intended for video editing and CAD CAM design.

    I have been getting the hardware installed for about a week now. In its present iteration I now hear the powersupply clicking during off, on and power-down. Sounds like a heat expansion or cold contraction sound.

    The wattage may be an issue (PSU installed is 750w) as in underpowered system.

    Here is why I think I need to upgrade my PS. Yesterday I installed the HDD cage in my Lian-Li pc9f case with all HDDs mounted and cabled. I started the computer (cold boot). No light on the start button. Psu was plugged in and on. I fiddled around with the MB power plug and realized that had neglected to plug in the modular side of all the HDD plugs. Did that and the power supply spazzed out. After a bunch of reboots and windows 8.1 pro hang ups during the start sequence the machine is now stable.

    I want to assure all readers of this thread that the fan clicking is NOT a fan issue I checked and diagnosed it as either relays or expansion contraction sounds (from circuit heat).

    In reflection I have a supported idea: I might upgrade the power to at least 1000 watts.


    Please those that read this and have an opinion, what is the latest thinking on manufacturers and models of PSUs for this motherboard and build as noted below! I realize the PSU needs 4th Gen Haswell Cert.

    Currently (no pun intended) I've a corsair hx750 purchased in 2013 from new egg. Cost is not a factor until well over 200 USBs. So my budget is around 199.99 USD.

    Give me a heads up please as to youtr thinking.

    Thanks to all in advance,

    Certainly not an under powered system whatsoever. That does not exclude a PSU problem.

    Normally the graphics card is the most power hungry component in the mix, but yours (if the model number you included is right) is only an 80W card. Does it even have one connector for a PSU cable?

    http://www.nvidia.com/content/PDF/da...3_NV_US_LR.pdf

    Your CPU without an OC is not power hungry, at 100% usage it is about 60W at stock clock.

    DRAM memory takes two watts at most per standard speed DIMM. Your storage drives, 50W max being liberal.

    You're not even using 50% of your PSU's capability at maximum power draw for all your main components.

    But connecting whatever those HDD cables were with the PSU on was not a good move.

    The sound from the PSU is not a relay, if one is switching what is the result? You should be able to detect something happening. Sorry but fan noise is my bet, very hard to pin point.

    A Haswell certified PSU only means it can take a load of zero Watts on the 12V rail. You have four HDDs and a graphics card using 12V power all the time. Any case fans run from 12V power, even if on a fan controller, so if you have but one, your 12V rail is loaded.

    Otherwise, disable the C7 C State in the BIOS to keep the CPU from drawing nothing for a few milliseconds, many times a second. No Haswell PSU issue.

    Hey, if you want a new PSU, go for it, get a Seasonic Platinum model. All you need is the 660W version, and could get a smaller one, but the 760 and 860 models are great if you want power over kill. Fanless mode on, fan rarely runs, not needed. Ignore that your Corsair PSU case is larger with a bigger fan, smoke and mirrors for the bigger is better crowd.

    Thanks Parsec, for the prompt reply. I've been dealing with getting this build stable. For the last 2 days it's been good. I have one question though. I bought the evga supernova 1200 p2 and installed it (to replace the corsair). Something weird happened; after cableing-up => power on, the motherboard LEDs on the power and reset buttons would come on, stay on for 2 sec, then fade off for 2 sec, then come on for 2 sec, then fade off for 2 sec ad infinitum ........
    Nothing else was indicative of power. The case power button never lit up nothing. No codes nothing. Called evga and they had no help to give, no similar reports. We decided a) the power supply was bad or b) incompatible with the MB. Put the Corsair HX750 back in and no problems whatsoever.

    I am RMAing the evga back to newegg. Funny story . . while I was talking with the newegg rep, my dobe chewed-up the evga motherboard power cable. Newegg was cool, no problemas.

    The reason I want power is cad cam 3d modeling in solidworks and the video editing in Premier Pro.
