ToFFo Posted October 28, 2010 Share Posted October 28, 2010 Hi all. I really am in doubt here. There seems to be coming a whiny noise from my PSU. Or rather, from the plug where i plug-in the power cord on the PSU. Sometimes it just goes away for no apparent reason. But its mostly when harddrives are loading something it starts to get noisy. Not noisy as in loud. But its a high pitch sound thats hard to describe. A whining grasshopper or something i don't really know. But i bought the AX850 to get a silent system and all i hear is that damn whiny noise. I'm not sure if its coilwhine or not. I have checked out numerous Youtube videos that show coilwhine on several AX PSU's. I just installed the PSU yesterday, and i am rather disappointed about this. I'm not even pushing the PSU! The fan doesnt even spin because it runs so cool. So question is. Is this due to the PSU or the power thats coming into the PSU from the power cord? I did not have this problem with my old Tt toughpower 750w. I already filled out an RMA case. But now i am in doubt wether its coilwhine or not. I don't want to waste the Corsair workers' time if theres nothing wrong with the PSU. Also, If i am to RMA this PSU, i will be without a PSU for an unknown period of times. Which is probably several days. Since i have to send it outside the country for RMA. And i JUST bought it! Not the quality i expected for such an expensive product.
