My AMD Phenom 9500 Quad Core Processor 2.20 Ghz works fine until I push it a little and then suddenly it starts making this chirping noise. It happens every time and is driving me crazy. It does it whenever I am trying to convert a music file to another file or whenever I am doing something that is requiring the processor to be pushed to its limit. Please tell me if there is anything that I can do.

Thanks

Are you sure, it is the CPU? It could be the PSU or a voltage converter on mainboard, near the CPU.

How can I be positively sure what it is? The reason why I think it is the processor is because it only makes the noise when I am doing something to push the processor. Is there any way to check if it could be the PSU or a voltage converter on mainboard? Are there any tests that I can run that would isolate the problem? Thanks

If the cpu is making a "chirping noise"its hungry,lol!!,sorry just a bad joke,it sounds like the fan on the heatsink,the more you stress the cpu the harder the fan has to work,ie spin faster,you might want to replace the fan or the whole HSF.

hi there Joseph - I too have a 9500 and have pushed it pretty hard with 3DMark03 benchmark utility - and no chirping here!

I Think Moorhen is on the right track - you may have a bearing on its way out on one of your cooling fans.

I had a similar problem on another PC and found the dodgy fan by stopping each fan in turn. Be careful here - if you stop it too long, something may fry.

Just push on the centre of the impeller with your fingertip - there is not a lot of torque and you can stop most fans very quickly and painlessly!

This is also how I spot "the noisiest fan in the box" with a view to reducing overall noise output.

If you cannot replace the fan, let me know and I will send you details of what can usually be done to get it going again in the short term.

HTH - regards - richard
