Default HX620 Buzzing/Hissing/Chirping, RMA?

Hey guys,

Recently picked up a Corsair 620 PSU, and it's been great. Rock solid, modular cables are a godsend in a case such as the P180 where wire management is difficult, etc. However, every minute or so it makes a hissing noise (if I'm doing everyday tasks) or if I'm doing something more intensive, it makes more of a chirping noise. Also, when using ATi Tool to scan for artifacts, the PSU emits a buzzing noise every few seconds. The noises can be heard from ~3-5ft away. I assume these are electrical noises, and while I usually have music or game noise drowning out this sound, I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Does it mean my power supply is failing? And should I RMA?

I would go ahead and follow our RMA process for this one. It should not be making these noises.
