    hiho

    just installed a new cpu fan in an attempt to make my system silent but since i can hear a buzzing noise. its noticeable when the system posts / boots - when the screen goes on and off.

    i thought it was the gfx card at first but i can place my head in between the box and the monitor and it is definately the monitor. :o

    i have never noticed before, maybe because i had an annoying loud cpu cooler but is this a normal thing? now i have noticed it it's damn annoying.

    try switching your tft on and off to see if u can hear any noise if you dont mind and let me know, especially if u have the same monitor.

    thanks :)

    I don't have the same monitor, mines a Viewsonic VP930 and silent, but some monitors do buzz a little especially when changing screens such as in boot-up. Sometimes lowering the brightness or contrast a little will take it away.

    A faint buzz has been the norm on all he tfts i've had.

    I've had an Eizo monitor which at first it started off as a quiet buzz, but over time became louder than the rest of the system. It was partciularly notcable on colour changes. Turned out to be a wire to part of the backlight which had become colied up. Eizo sent a brand new monitor to me in under 24 hours :D

    If it's just a faint buzz i wouldn't worry, but keep an eye on it for if it gets louder, maybe have a word with Samsung if you're concerned.

    Regards

    Not good news that. I will ask my mate who has the same monitor to check for buzzing noise.

    I have a 930BF at home and haven't noticed any buzzing and I have a very quiet watercooled system :confused:

    But as you say it only happens when the screen goes on and off so I will listen when it goes to standby.

    Game - very bright - no noise
    Sport - bright and blue tint - no noise
    Movie - warm - no noise
