Default corsair rm650x

i own a corsair rm650x , i have noticed that when the PC is shutdown , there is a low buzzing/high pitch/electrical sound noticible if i put my ear close to the unit. is this a sign that a component in the psu is faulty?

Do you live in a region of the world where the outlets are 230v? If so it is more likely to happen and doesn't mean the PSU is faulty.

Ya there is still power flowing to the PSU even with your computer off. In regions with outlets at 230v you are more likely to hear an electrical buzzing sound even while the computer itself is off.

in places I have been with 230V the general noise levels are more noticeable with a wide range of appliances

if you want absolute silence, use a power bar with a switch and then cut the power completely
