PSU chirping...

RE: PSU chirping...
Are you plugged straight into a wall outlet or into a surge protector? If you're plugged straight into a wall outlet, do yourself a favour and get a surge protector ASAP, I've lost count of the numbers of horror stories of people losing their whole PC to power surges.

If it's plugged into a power surge already, try plugging the power surge in another outlet. Also, see if there are other power-hungry equipment that are pulling power from the same 15A fuse from the electrical panel. Your PC alone can pull up to 5-6A at 120V, so that leaves a bit less than 10A (~1200W) for other equipment.

RE: PSU chirping...
First of all, Thanks Mathieu and everyone else.

I have it in a surge protector. I switched it over to one across the room and it stopped chirping. Odd, nothing else except the computer was attached. Anyways it seems that fixed the problem. Simple solution, I should of thought of that first...

Thanks.

Now I wonder if I should still have it replaced. Do you guys think the capacitors are damaged?

Well, which PSU are you keeping in the end? If you're still on the Antec 550W, I'd change it and upgrade it simply because that's too low to handle two GTX 460 in SLI.

RE: PSU chirping...
Yea that's true. My friend and I are switching power supplies because the 750W is overkill for his build, until I get one also. We're still going to RMA the Antec. By the way, should I be worried about my computer parts?

Nope, they should be fine.
