  1. ever since i got another S ATA hard drive for my pc the PSU makes a very hard to belive noise. It sounds like its sparking! Could this be because its over powering the PSU with the second hard drive?? It only starts doing it though when ever i open a big application or a game like COD or Unreal tournament 2004.

    Thanks for your time

    Yes it does sound like a PSU upgrade is in order.

    Go for a quality PSU like Enermax or Antec etc about 400 to 450 watts should be fine.
