Hi
I noticed this morning a weird issue when using photoshop.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0cioRSsl-Y
My pc makes this grinding noise when working with it and moving itemps in PS. It's not doing it in Indesign or Illustrator.
I really don't understand !

Thanks

That's way too much TV time for you, Trevor. You need to get out more 😄

 

Being a level-headed and rational person, I'd start by opening the computer case and check the video card fan. Blow out all the dust and cobwebs while you're at it.

 

Do you have a spinning hard drive in there? Noise means imminent failure. Get everything off it and replace it ASAP. Photoshop writes to disk like crazy, much more than Ai and Id.

I don't have a hard disk anymore, ony NVME and SSDs.
I clean my PC every week and the noise seems to come from the motherboard vrm actually, it's not the disks, not the pump or the fans, i'm 100% sure of it.

It is probably just coil whine. You sometimes get it from VRM or GPUs. 

For a technical explanation look up magnetostriction.

Can't tell if it's the same thing ... but yeah, since ever when I start moving stacks of layers, or playing with adjustment I hear this subtle noise coming from the pc. Heard that back then with older PC, still hear it now with brand-new PC at work.

I'm not worried, but I was curious.

Too noob to really understand what he said, but I guess it could be that.

If you are a Windows user, open up the Task Manager Performance tab, and then Resource Manager, and look for what is being pushed or maxed.  The GPU is at the bottom of the list under Performance.  Actually, I'm pointing that out because it scrolls off the page for me as I have a lot of drives and that probably won't be the case for most people.

 

We tell people that CPU clock speed is king with Photoshop, so it is most likely that CPU usage is being pushed causing turbo speeds to max, temperatures to rise and fan speed to increase.  I've never seen Photoshop come close to maxing the GPU over multiple systems.
