beleaf Posted October 12, 2010 Share Posted October 12, 2010 I’ve used my Corsair PSU (VX-550) for the last 3-4 years and overall I’ve been very happy with it. It was used in my main desktop which for over a year now I use as my HTPC in the basement, where furnace and projector fans take over the noise levels. Yesterday I’ve decided to swap Corsair PSU and put it in my main machine to replace failing Antec SmartPower PSU (+5Vsb rail is going). To my surprise the Corsair PSU is very noisy and I don’t remember being that noisy when I used it in my HTPC as main machine. It is much nosier than Antec PSU… Also at one point yesterday after shutting down system, all drives/fans where shutdown, however there the PSU was still going. BTW.. my computer is going through UPS (cyberpower) and cyberpower software reports my system uses about 150W at idle… so I’m sure PSU is not being overloaded. I don’t play any games on that PC and use IGP8200 (on-board video)… I’m planning to take PSU out of my case to see if the problem would still happen. Also I’ll test all the voltages using my DMM… Are there any other tests/things I should try before going RMA route…? TIA Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
