Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
A week ago, my 3 year old motherboard goes on an acid trip. Throws CMOS errors when it even bothers to post, etc.
I buy and a new motherboard, CPU, RAM. I'm going from an old Athlon X2 64 something-or-other to an Intel i7. Antec's website has a power supply needs calculator, which recommended a 435 watt PSU. Mine was rated at 550 (3 years ago).
New equipment was installed today in the old box, with the old equipment (cards, HDDs, etc.)
The power supply began to make strange little hissing noises moments after the first power up. The noises are semi-intermittent, occasionally louder, occasionally softer.
The only thing that I can think of was that while cleaning out the case with a can of compressed air, I shot the air into the PSU's fan outlet. Could this have caused any problems?
