Clicking nosie from new HX1050

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I purchased a HX1050 the other day, came home, set it all up, and when I power on I get a clicking noise.

It also happens when I shut off.

It never happens while the computer is up and running not even under heavy benchmarks and gaming.

I exchanged it for a new one today and same thing.

Is it a feature of the new HX1050?

Any help is greatly appreciated guys.

It's nothing to worry about. Some PSU's have known the click now and again. Sometimes it's the fan and sometimes it's just something within the PSU. It's a bit like having a GPU that's got a squeeling capacitor. Not nice to have but nothing to worry about either.

Is this common with Corsair power supplies though?
