Get a new one quickly and use you Pc as little as possible, ie, power off. Get a good brand, Corsair, Seasonic, Thermaltake higher end.

A bad PSU can cause other components to burn out starting with the motherboard.

yeah Buzzing isnt a good sign or electric snaps you can hear

Quickly follow the above advice and get a new PSU asap and make sure you have no component damage something like this would give voltage spikes and for sure fizzle your components dead

New PSU?

My psu has developed a loud buzzing noise, I have taken the safest route and aim to replace it, I was wondering what your recommendations would be on a new one in the same price bracket, I currently have a near dead Coolermaster 700w Silent Pro?

or should i just put the fault down to bad luck and get a replacement?

Many Thanks
Matthew

Corsair, Antec, or Seasonic is what I would look into.

A 650W should be good for your setup, or a bit larger depending what upgrades you may have planned.

Im am buying a new psu for my build (listed in specs) and was wondering if the above would be a suitable replacement for the Coolermaster 700w silent pro

Thanks

mc995599,
This calculator could be helpful, but in reality I would look toward 700-1000 watts modular and that Corsair will outlive many other upgrades and expand with you for years. The PSU is the heart of a great system and spending extra here is just good common sense. imho !

Antec, ASUS, Corsair, Cooler Master, Enermax, OCZ, ThermalTake... they all are good brands XFX introduced there line PSU's as well but i dont know about them yet but they might be good i assume.
