might have a problem with my power supply,it is 550watt and when it has been on for a while(over an hour and running games or proccesser intensive programs(a crackleing noise comes form it,could it be over heating because if i stop using the pc for about 15 minutes then the noise goes it is only 2 months old

How do you know where the noise is coming from??

Get it sent back. Don't mess with it. You've paid good money for it, let the people who built it sort it. Thats what warranties are for.

Via Email,

"well i think the noise is comming from there,bit hard to tell,rest of pc is all new as built it myself,might well return it but lost the receit lol".

Have you got an other power supply to use?? Just to check if it is that??
