Default Corsair TX650M Fan Clicking Noise

I got a TX650M a little over a month ago, and the fan on it suddenly started clicking. The clicking's loud enough to be heard outside the case, and it's very annoying because everything else in the case is virtually inaudible. Is there any way to fix this, or do I need to RMA it?

I've received my replacement PSU with an advance rma, but it has the exact same problem. I uploaded a video of the noise to YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWE9e9ZEJOE
It's making the same noise as before, it's still the loudest thing in my computer, and it's very annoying.

It happens when the psu has a load on it, or it's hot (I don't know which one it is) and the fan is still off. The moment the fan turns on, the clicking stops.

Now I've got two defective PSUs. What do I do now? Do I send the original PSU back or do I send the new defective unit?

Note: The fan in the video seems loud because I put the Intel stock cooler on while I was filling and bleeding my Swiftech H220. Everything else in the case is usually virtually silent, even under high load.

Im getting the excact same noise. Built my computer yesterday, using TX650M as psu, gtx670 and i5 3570k.
When I start to play something and psu fan speeds up, the noise goes away tho.

I'm actually still in the process of getting a normal PSU. My first one was as I described above, and apparently like the one you have. The second one had the same clicking noise when the fan was off, and the fan also buzzed when the fan was on. The third one doesn't click when the fan's off, but the fan buzzed. Now I'm getting shipped a fourth replacement. I think the situation's quite ridiculous, but Corsair's customer support is better than some companies I've had to deal with in the past.

The RMA numbers of the PSUs I got with this problem were 6038416 and 6053875. They arrived at Corsair a week or two ago.

sorry for my english, I'm Italian and I'm using the google translator ..
I bought a few days ago the same power supply and I have the same noise problem, very annoying, I have already changed once in the store, but this also makes the exact same noise again ...
how can I do to fix it?
Should I send it to you at my expense? shipment from Italy to Holland is not cheap, given the money I already spent on the feeder ...
look forward to hearing from you and thank you for the service.

This is the exact same noise two of my GS600's made. I have found it is NORMAL behaviour from the PSU. The parts are functioning as they should and they make this noise. My solution was to buy a different PSU.

Hello. I just recently built a new computer and was getting the same noise. I had Amazon ship me a new power supply and this one is making that noise as well. It only happens when the PSU fan is not spinning. Once it starts to spin the noise stops. Please let me know if there are any solutions for this as I really don't feel like rewiring my computer a third time.
