A few months ago my alienware started having problems. The computer would freeze and make a buzzing noise while gaming, and gpu temps got to 86 Celsius. This became more progressive and I contacted alienware. I was sent replacement gpu's of my 980's (triple sli). This seemed to fix the problem until the other day when the old problem returned. Screen frozen showing last image displayed, loud buzzing noise. I was asked by a dell rep to try and verify where the buzzing noise was coming from. I had planned to do that today when I tried to turn on my computer and it will not post. There is a clicking noise which I believe is coming from the psu every 3 seconds. My keyboard rgb lights are on but not my rgb mouse or game pad. The monitor says entering safe mode. I am at a loss of what to do from here. I have had the new gpus for 3 days and the problem has only gotten worse.
