CX450M making an annoying sound


Recommended Posts



I've been hearing a rather annoying sound coming from my PC and after some inspection I found out its my PSU. It's making this (see video) sound and it's louder than most my PC components. Should I be worried? Return it? Sell it pretend its all fine?

Pray to shrek?


Thx in advance




You might have to turn up your volume

I have the Corsair CX 650M and it's making the same noise. Nothing in the system is anywhere near as loud and it's driving me crazy. The power supply is mounted conventionally with the fan down towards the ground, and it has perfect clearing as the case is placed on a hard foundation.


The whole system is completely new, I built it under a week ago and the fan noise has been there from the start. I am concidering contacting my retailer, but it would be great if there were an easier fix to this.


The system I'm running is:


Corsair CX650M, 650W

Asus ROG Strix Z270H Gaming

Asus GeForce GTX 1070 ROG Strix Gaming

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4

Intel Core i5-7600K Kaby Lake Processor

Samsung 850 EVO Series 500BG
