    Hey guys,

    My system has been running for 3 days staright without making these noises, and it's been really quiet. Now, it's making loud noises, occasionally stopping, then starting again... any ideas what's causing this? It sounds like a jet engine....

    As far as I can tell. I'm not entirely sure, but the PSU fan isn't pushing any more air out, and the only other fan is the CPU. I'll check in BIOS what the temps are.

    Temps are 41C... I think I fixed it, there might have been a cable in the way...
