Default Is it normal...

.... to hear the PSU "wind up" when an application produces a lot of
graphics such as 3dMark 2005? I can't even make it thru 3dMark
without a crash...

Some PSU's have a thermal controlled fan, so it spins down according to the
temperature. And since the gfx card eats more power when its stressed, its
normal it "winds up".

Ought to be enough. Try open the case or apply extra cooling. Maybe you can
set various fans in the pc to run at full speed despite the temperature.

But the networks had it changed to "an elephant makes love to a pig".
Which is kind of silly, because if an elephant was on top of the pig,
it wouldnt be making love to it, it would be ****ing it ! [Trey Parker]

You know? I've just boxed up an Enermax coolergiant 480w. for RMA!
It couldn't run my A8V and 6800GT if I connected more than 3 drives.

Not good... put in an Antec 550w true and all is well.
