RM1000x - clicking noise

Recommended Posts

It's been quite a few years since building a new PC and I haven't been keeping up with all the new tech so I wasn't sure if this was normal operation for the Corsair RM1000x PSU.


After the PC has been under load for more than an hour (usually playing games), I hear an audible clicking noise from the PSU. The clicking will persist until after I'm done playing, exit the game and use the PC under light load (or idle). After about 3 to 5 minutes, it will stop until my next game session. I also notice that the fan is not spinning even while the game is running. Can anyone tell me if this is normal?


My worst fear is that the clicking is the PSU trying to turn on the fan but it's not working, hence the clicking/switch type noise it's making.





**Update** After watching the video several times, I noticed that the fan slightly moves every time a click is heard (can see the movement better during the 2nd half of the vid). My worst fear is starting to weigh on my mind.
