I recently purhased a new PSU for my computer. I purchased the coolermaster Realpower 700w (modular) and when I installed it and turned, it started making a clicking noise. After checking all the fans in my computer for obstructions (my case has a lot of fans), I can be fairly certain that is not any of the fans, even the PSU fan. The clicking seems to be some sort of electrical spark but i havent yet seen a spark, even with the lights off. It happens 1 or 2 times a second and only occurs when the computer is switched on, otherwise the computer works fine.

Please can anyone tell me if my PSU is about to die and wether i should send it back with my warrenty.

Thank you in advance for any replies.

It should not be doing this. I would get them to swap it.
