Default Just got my HX620w......

Ok, i just want to know if this is a bad or good. I just got my HX620 from Zipzoomfly. Before I put it n my MB I test it everything look good but I hear a loud clicking noise coming out of the power suppy. Nothing is near the fan. The paperclip is in the green and black. But when I plug it in the MB and the HD the clicking noise was not as loud but u can hear noise if you put your ear near the power supply. So did I get a bad Power Supply.

The clicking noise is a piece of hardware inside that prevents the power supply from powering on fully if there isn't a significant load on the +12V rails. If you plug it into a motherboard and a few hard drives it will work fine.

No just connect some more hardware to it and see if that does not solve the problem.

OK i connect everything on dont hear that loud clicking noise but you can hear little buzzing noise if you put your ear near the power supply but when your far away from it you can't hear it. So is that good. Or should I just wait and see if it get louder. Cause I had a power supply that did that to me before but the bussing noise was louder than this one and sometime it wouldn't turn on the computer or maybe nothing is wrong with it. I'll just keep it for awhile and see. If it dose i'll just RMA it back to zipzoomfly.com or to you guys.

probably just a normal capacitor buzz, after all, you're not supposed to put your ear to the PSU during normal use :)
