eshbop Posted February 20, 2013 Share Posted February 20, 2013 Hi, Several days ago I bought this PSU and after flipping the switch on the back of the unit before powering on the system was faced with a quiet annoying and distracting sequel (especially when trying to sleep). Part of the reason I bought this PSU was due to its fanless operation but this noise is much worse than the 'whoosh' of a fan. After some testing I found that no matter what system I put it in, what wall socket, what I did to CPU power settings (which imho is not a fix) the sound would not go away. Turns out all that is needed for the sound to start is the 24pin plugged in. The sound is also present (although in a slightly different pitch) when the computer is on, both at idle and under load. So I sent the unit back to where I bought it and they sent back a replacement, which has the exact same problem. I really like this PSU (apart from the whine obviously) and was wondering the commonality of this problem (it seems like a few people are having this issue with the new AX's), ie; if I send this unit back again, what are the chances of me getting another squealer? It's already cost me AU$250 (+$20 more if i send this one back) Or is it not worth my worry, should I just pick another PSU altogether? I don't really want to be spending $350 to find a PSU that doesn't keep me up at night... Cheers for the help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
