Windows 7: Buzzing noise from the tower

Stock standard system. I took it apart again and reckon I might have overdone the application
the first time
Cleaned it up again with iso alc and just put a pea sized dot in the middle. Started her up and got about halfway through a conversion but the temps gradually got up and alarm went off again. Maybe I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed but this is giving me the irrits!
Possibly change the thermal paste? I wanted Arctic silver#5 but the only stuff I could get in a hurry was Coolermaster V1 IC

Iffoar,
I think it's time for a cpu cooler upgrade. Open the back of your case and if the hole provided exposes the CPU back plate then you'll have a easier time for the swap. Many great coolers both air and sealed water available. I run all water coolers and they are amazing and quiet but many swear by air !

Be aware of the clearance in the case to your side panel and also the height of your ram modules and location in their ram slots when looking at air solutions. Look at the case manufactures website for water cooling solutions in radiator size 120mm/140mm 240mm 280mm locations and consider the largest that fits.

Consider a popular 240mm rad. it looks like your case will take it with ease.

Thermaltake Chaser Series A41 VP200A1W2N Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com

This system will rock your world with cool temps and near silent operation !

Corsair Hydro Series? H100i GTX Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm - Newegg.com

I've also used Thermaltake's sealed water systems as well as NZXT's they're all fantastic so if pricing is a concern then look and compare all three systems.

According to post #7 you also have power supply problems.
Your 3.3 and 5.0 volts are very low.
A poor power supply can also make noise when under load.

Thanks to all for your input, bit the bullet and went and bought an aftermarket cooler! Just a cheapie but it's done the job. Installed it and walahh, temps are now in the 50-56 degree mark when under load converting videos. Damn computers, always something Thanks again fellers

Hey guys thanks for filling in while I made dinner! Glad you picked up where we left off and solved the problem.

Iffoar, listen to LB about the power supply.

Now back to rendering another video slide show project in Video Studio X8.

LB, psu doesn't make any noises and everything seems to be working OK. Is there something else I should worry about? The psu was new when I got the comp built only a year or so back.

Just to hop in ;
Regarding voltages in post #7,HWMonitor is known for not properly showing voltages.Try with HWiNFO or BIOS readings.

Power supply buzzing is maybe coil whine (high pitched sound emitted because of physical vibration of coil caused by variable magnetic field ) which is normal but leaking condensator will also produce similar noise.

I see what you mean. This is the HWinfo read and sure looks a little different. BTW I had no noise at all coming from PSU or no apparent fault with it. Comp is running well with the new cooler fitted, did some heavy processing last night and stayed cool enough............ Well, the grandkids are up (4am xmas morn) so to all, have a great day, eat and drink heaps and be happy
