HX520W's fan sounds like a cricket


Recommended Posts



I'm from Belgium so don't mind the bad english.


A year ago I bought a HX520W.

A month ago I decided to replace some cheap casecoolers with quiet ones.

Now I can't stop noticing the bizar noise the PSUfan is making. It's like a cricket, or the fan needs to be oiled :p:


I put a plastic pen against the center of the fan for a sec and the noise stopped.

Ok, so I have some questions:

Probably the PSU isn't broken, can I still get a replacement?

Will the new one have the same problem ?

What exactly is wrong with the fan ??

Do I need to contact the shop where I bought it, or fill in an online RMA directly?


Kind regards :):
