Under standard operation, it's totally silent. If I run a game however (stressing the CPU with Prime95 didn't seem to do the trick) within a few minutes I can hear a very faint tapping sound (as in the video) then the fan spins up and the noise goes away temporarily. It spins down very shortly after however, within a few seconds, and then the noise kind of returns till it spins up again a few seconds later. It does that continually until the system load is reduced. I find it highly unlikely that myself, a poster in here and the person making that YT video (as well as a few commenters saying they had the same) would have the same defect in the fan? If the system is warmer (on/or activate for a long time) the noise seems to reduce slightly. But that may simply be because the fan is spinning up more often. My system is a new pre-build btw. Anyway I wanted to get a response on this as my system is only a week old and if I need a new PSU I want to sort it with the place I bought the system from (the thread I replied in already seems to have died).
