Default RMi 850 Watt Buzzing when PC is on

Hello Dear forum members.

I am new here and I have a question related to my 1 year old Power Supply

Last year i decided to finally swap my 8 year old 1000W corsair HX PSU with a

brand new RM850i Gold certified PSU . So far no problems whatsoever, however, i do have a coil whine buzz since the day I have installed it in my rig. I decided to not pay attention to it as I heard that coil whine is not dangerous but rather annoying.

However, recently I started worrying again that this buzzing may actually cause trouble in the future. Should I still RMA it or buy a new one? Can I leave the cables from the current RM850i and use them with the new RM850i? Really dont feel like messing with my cable management again:(

Thanks guys.

Hi Nighthawk90, definitely put in a ticket with our support, you should have a 10 year warranty with your proof of purchase. The RM850i should be using Type 4 cables, so you'll be OK going from RM850i to RM850i.
