    If you know the PSU is some generic piece of crap, why even bother asking?

    If it works, it works. If it doesn't, it doesn't. But it's not going to damage your new card.

    If it doesn't work, RMA it.

    They don't test the returns.

    But a replacement PSU is going to do the same thing.

    I don't know why you trust me on this. I see this every day.

    That's actually not a bad idea. When the PC is in standby, it doesn't need the battery. But the CMOS battery could be dead so the BIOS has to reconfigure at every power on. Test that CMOS battery!...

    i never said the problem had anything to do with the PC being old, new, whatever. I said that it's a 50/50 crap shoot. Some boards do it more than others.

    Why? Why are you disconnecting your PC from the wall?

    This is what's happening: You have an ATX PC which is meant to "stay on" all the time, but in standby. When you unplug it from the wall, the...

    The people that are saying this is the PSU are wrong. That's not the PSU. That's the motherboard.

    Well.. the PC isn't "off". It's in standby. There's always power going through that coil. Just at the lower loads of +5VSB, the frequency of that energy is at a lower, audible frequency.

    You don't have to call it "black label". There's only one generation of CS-M.

    The CS-M is much better. It's the same LLC D2D as CX but with Gold efficiency.

    Yeah. Pictures don't tell anyone if your outlets are grounded. The outlet has the proper pins, but who knows if they're actually grounded on the other side of the wall. To find out, you actually...

    Not if the voltage of the bulk cap is high enough, it doesn't matter.

    Type 4 is the same as Type 3 for the SATA and PATA, so it should have been pinned correctly.

    Yes. Bulk cap failures are VERY rare. And usually point to a defective cap or bad PSU design.

    Any idea what make/model bulk cap is in the PSU in your picture?

    I don't think OP is getting his part number correct. Maybe he's not reading it off the PSU itself.
