I have to say I've never experienced this working with these boxes over many years, but maybe I've just never noticed. OK, back to the OQ then. A couple of questions:

- Exactly what do you have plugged into the Soekris board? Ie, is it supplying power to other stuff? If so, what is the total load?
- What sort of case is it in? The standard box, or something else?
- If it's in a steel box, does the bare board (with any extras but minus its case) still make the noise or is the noise actually coming from the case?
