KGBinUSA Posted February 22, 2013 Share Posted February 22, 2013 So I bought an HX850 (CP-9020032-US) from MicroCenter today. Put into my system (i5 3570K @ 4.5Ghz, Gigabyte 7950HD @ 1025 GPU and 1360 GDDR5, 8Gb DDR3 @ 1866, 3 HDDs, 4 120mm Fans), nothing the PSU should not be able to handle. Most of the time the PSU is dead silent, like 99% of the time. But after playing BF3 for an hour or so, the PSU warms up and the fan kicks in. The fan in the PSU does not go from 0% to like 40% or so, it goes straight to 100% for about 10-15 seconds and then shuts off. During those 10-15 seconds, I feel like there is a miniature vacuum cleaner working in my PC...the fan is so loud, that I can hear it even with my headphones on. Is that normal? Or should I be exchanging the PSU for another one? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
