  1. I just RMA-ed it, but was wondering if other people also experience this or that it is normal behavior. System details: Gigabyte Aorus Master X570 AMD X5950 32GB Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 2x 1TB Samsung 980 Pro Corsair H150i Elite Capellix 7x Corsair QL120 Fans Corsair 5000X Case What i’ve tried: Removing the GPU -> no difference Switching the cables to different inputs -> no difference Adding EMI/RFI filter -> no difference Grounded/ungrounded power outlet -> no difference When inside the case: [ame] [/ame] When outside the case: [ame] [/ame]
  2. I recently completed a build in an NCASE M1 using the SF750. I've noticed when gaming/at load and the PSU fan comes on, it starts making audible clicking noise (audible at up to 5-6 feet away). See video: https://streamable.com/laugjl I'm quite certain it's coming from the PSU, as I'm able to clearly hear the volume increase bringing my ear close to the PSU, which is easily isolated at the back of the NCASE. The noise also continues after GPU/CPU fans have died down when stopping gaming, as the PSU fan still is running for some time after system load has come down. Can anyone confirm if this is atypical, and if corsair would honor a part replacement?
  3. Just wondered what your thoughts are on this? Only got the HX750 yesterday to replace an old AX860. I wouldn't mind a little noise, but this is giving me tinnitus. Is this a one off or do I replace it with something different? [ame] [/ame]
  4. Hi all, I've just purchased a RM1000X after my previous Corsair CX750M seemed to cause system to power cycle under peak loads when over-clocking. The RM1000X has completely resolved this issue, however this PSU has possibly the worlds loudest coil whine / buzzing. This occurs when both on normal grid power, and when connected to a pure sine wave generating UPS. Under heavy loads such as games, this coil whine and buzzing can be so loud that it's audible anywhere in the house, and most definitely over the audio from my games while wearing headphones. Is there anything that can resolve this? This never occurred on the previous 750W or any other PSU that has, or is running. Unfortunately its literally driving me up the wall and making me dread using my PC currently. It's the only Corsair product that I have problems with. Keyboard, mouse, RAM, cooler, fans, case, etc... all excellent. See video / audio here: - (Video taken while idle on desktop, and connected to pure sine wave UPS) [ame] [/ame] EDIT: Its the RM1000X - my apologies. Confused myself with the naming schemes. Unfortunately unable to edit title.
  5. Hey, I've got an M65 PRO and it seems to be generating quite a bit of coil whine at 1000Hz. Turning down the polling rate has a tangible effect on the amount of noise. To have it inaudible, I have to set the polling rate to 250Hz or lower. Additional Note: - It also seems to occur when using interacting with applications such as FireFox or Windows, however when interacting with certain apps such as iCUE, it doesn't seem to be audible. - I've tried different USB ports to no avail My questions are: 1. Any ideas on how to resolve the coil whine? 2. If not, is there a way to set polling rates based off game profiles? Logitech allows for polling rates to be based off profiles, but it appears iCUE only has one central setting for the mouse in Settings. Thanks!
  6. My PC suddenly shutdown and restarted itself the other day while I was playing Civilization VI. It was as if there was a power outage, but I have it connected to a UPS. Could it be my PSU? Also, it’s been making a lot of electrical buzzing noise during games for the past year or two, and seems to be getting worse. It is loud enough to hear every time I play a game, unless I use headphones. I assumed it’s annoying but harmless coil whine. Should I RMA? Is it dangerous to use in the mean time? It’s the only PSU I have (HX750 bought around 5 years ago). Here’s a video I made to test whether it was my GPU or PSU making the noise. It gets louder when I move it down to the PSU. [ame] [/ame]
