    First of all, make sure that there aren't any cables stuck in the fans.

    Open the case and see.

    From the fan in the PSU? Sure? That's not good!

    What was the other fan you're talking about, if it's just a regualr 80mm, check to see if it's nicely in place.

    Man, if your cards are hot, and your PSU is making noise, turn it off!

    My old computer, from years back, used to make that noise as well. Just go pick up a new power supply (with higher watts).

    video cards will always get hot. that's normal. even lan cards and anthing with a chip on it can get hot. unless it's causing lock-ups or whatever, then no big deal.

    you could pick up a new power supply, if you're the rich/lazy type... or just remove and open up your power supply and, at the most, replace the fan in it.

    Dunno, my vid card gets warm, and my other cards somewhat cool. Then again, it's all my fans :)

    what kinda card? and you ever hold your finger on the area directly on the other side of the gpu? every card i've messed with has gotten pretty hot. but never to the point it hurts or anything.
