Now im a little worried.... I removed the ram and graphics card plugged in and powered up.... the front fan turned blue and I thought "woohoo here we go" ... however, this went off but then it powered itself back up... for longer than it had this morning.
To my horror however instead of a nice smooth whirring sound I got a much slower spinning and what sounded like something getting grated I also got a very worrying smell kind of like something burning but not quite that smell? I switched off immediately.
Whats confusing me is I left the pc running orthos overnight after I had overclocked it, when I went back to the loft this morning to check on it I could kind of smell this smell in the air however the pc seemed to be running fine. I immediately shut down and switched the ram as i've previously said and my problems started from there.
