    Thanks for your reply. It looks like the main culprit is the OCZ PSU. I find myself really outdated with the latest development of computing stuffs. In this THREAD, some people have the similar problem with the following PSUs:

    OCZ 850W GameXStream PSU
    Corsair TX850W
    PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750W
    Thermaltake Toughpower XT 750W
    Corsair HX650
    Seasonic

    I bought the PSU from Aria PC Technology two weeks plus ago. I'm not sure if they allow me to return my OCZ PSU and exchange for other brand PSU. My budget is less than 80 quids. Do you think which PSU should be compatible and will not produce such annoying noise?

    Do you think my graphic card 8600GT, which is less power hungry I presume, will cause any "noise" problem like your (especially the ATI X1950)?

    Before I purchased the system, I read your comments in this forum. I told myself that once I got the system I will come back to this forum to have your advices on how to overclock the CPU to 3.2GHz. Once I'm ready, I really need your help to overclock my CPU as this will be the first time I overclock a CPU.

    Thanks.

    I disabled the following:
    RUN -> MSCONFIG -> STARTUP -> Uncheck "ETcall C:\Program Files\GIGABYTE\ET6\ETcall.exe"

    Is it the same?

    Thanks.

    i cant recommend a psu as im as much in the dark about what brands produce mb squeal and what brands dont,as for your gpu its best leave that untill you try a different psu as its mostly that component that causes it,again it still could be the mb but from what ive read on the net its a very common problem with gigabyte i dont know about other brands but id assume there the same,ive known it affect x58/p55/h55/h57 mb's aswell so you could rma and provided they find/accept your fault you still might recieve a mb that does this,cheap places to look for a psu in the uk are Cheap laptops, LCD TVs, Netbooks, PC Monitors & more | Ebuyer.com Computer Supplies and PC Components from Novatech and Overclockers UK ,you need to ask around or scour the forums to find someone who has no mb squeal with their psu as my brand of psu makes the noise

    Yes, ETCall is EasytuneVI Service

    Don't use Msconfig though, use the program I linked you to, MSConfig should be left alone (Defaults) unless you are troubleshooting

    Hi Lsdmeasap...
    Since you're quite sure that the noise problem I encounter is not due to the motherboard but poor power supply, I'm considering to get a new PSU. What do you think about FSP PSU? Is THIS compatible with GA-X58A-UD3R? In fact I've been asking a few times which PSU that you will recommend or Gigabyte will assure it will work harmonious with GA-X58A-UD3R. I'm still waiting for the answer and I think many who wish to buy this board and who has known this issue would like to know as well. Since Gigabyte is so confident about the motherboard, they should be able to provide a list of PSUs that they have tested and do not produce the noise. Otherwise, I would say that Gigabyte knows it's a design flaw and they do not have the solution and keep giving "stupid replies" to customers, which is very irresponsible and should not be done by a big company like Gigabyte. If Toyota dares to admit there is a design flaw in their cars, why Gigabyte does not have the courage to do so... If it's the PSU issues, why so far I have not heard any ASUS X58 (e.g. Asus P6X58D-E) motherboard got the "noise issue".

    I posted on page 2 what PSU's I use and have zero issues with

    It could be your board is faulty though, but I wouldn't send it in until I could test with a known PSU that did not do this, or at least a few other larger ones.

    Thanks. I'm aware of your post on page 2, the Ultra X3 and X2. Unfortunately, after I did a Google search I could not find an online shop in UK that sells this PSU. In other words, that power supply may not be a popular choice here. Most of the users here buy Corsair, OCZ, Seasonic, Thermaltake, etc. But many with those PSUs have reported the same issue with GA-X58A-UD3R. I don't know if any user wants to buy a Toyota car if Toyota insists that their cars have no problem with Shell fuel and the engine will produce some funny noise with other manufacturer fuels because Toyota claimed other fuels are not good. It looks like now it is the customer to be blamed for picking up the so-called wrong PSUs. If it happens with one PSU then probably we could blame the poor quality of the PSU but if so many PSUs (branded and decent) have the similar issue with the motherboard, I think there must be something wrong with the board.

    I wish I have another PSU at the moment but unfortunately not. The problem is I should send which one (PSU or motherboard) back for RMA. After RMA will the problem be solved?

    Seasonic should be good, they make great PSU's

    I get what you are saying, but I can only tell you what I know/see online. Your PSU Brand may be fine, you might just need a larger one is all.

    I think only less than 2-3% of users with these boards have this issue, and only less than .05% of that is actual faulty boards.

    Not sure if RMA would fix either, if both are fully functional and not faulty then neither would help. Only way to know for sure if the PSU is to blame or faulty board is to try a few other PSU's, larger or different brands.

    If you refer back to this post, user with Seasonic also has the similar problem.
    Gigabyte may think that we (novices) give false comments, but the very senior forumer here, wazza300, also raised the same problem with his system. The difference is either they know the work around, they don't bother, or they don't even know about it.

    You may try Google search for the following:

    "Asus P6X58D-E" & "squealing noise"
    "GA-X58A" & "squealing noise"

    The searched result tells itself. Still a PSU problem? It's not convincing, in my opinion. What do you reckon? Thanks.

    i have a cheap psu though,and it makes the noise even less with my new gpu,it makes the noise at start up and more in windows xp when watching a movie but its hardly noticable,updating lan and audio drivers help lessen it aswell as for asus mb's ive heard it affects those too but i cant say for that particular model you mentioned
