How many fans are we talking about? An average system should use less than 350W so your PSU should be more than enough. Again, time to ask for a full build config listing.Vulgy2009 wrote:There was a high pitched squeek during start-up. I decided to disconnet each of the fans one at a time to see if this was causing the issue. It did not work as the system kept cutting out. I suspect that the Antec PSU 550 may not be capable of powering all fans
You sure the heatsink is seated properly? If you are on an Intel build, check the 4 push pins and make sure they are firmly in place with the click sound.Vulgy2009 wrote:however with the tower placed on its side rather than upright all the fans worked ( no squeeking) and the system booted up with no issues????? I am completely confused now!! has anyone come across this type of issue before and if so how did you resolve it?
