HX850W making noise and smell?


Recommended Posts

Hello guys. I have an hx 850 but im a bit worried about it.


This is the clicking noise its making.

About the smell, is it normal it smells a bit? It smells like hot electronics, dunno how to explain it. Its not a smell like smoke or anything. You can smell it more when gamming.


I've tried disabling C1E and IEST as suggested but the noise persists.


Should I be concerned? RMA?

Yep sounds like somethings wrong with the fan bearing which doesn't sound like the relay clicking sound that disabling C1E and IEST would address. The smell is either slowly cooking grease on greased fans or slowly baking plastic on greaseless models. RMA time.
