Corsair PSU HDD Click

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Bought a new Corsair 650 PSU about a month ago to replace a Gigabyte ODIN PSU (had voltage issues) and noticed recently that the PSU is emitting a clicking sound when under load, scrolling a webpage, watching a youtube video, etc.

It sounds EXACTLY like HDD access noise, so in troubleshooting i unplugged all my mchanical drives (SSD is my main drive) and it still did it. It is very noticable since I use my computer withouth playing music or anything most of the time when I'm browsing, so then every time I scroll on a webpage it makes noise.

I have done recomended things like turn off all CPU power saving stuff in the BIOS (most of which is off by default) and no changes.

It's been 37 days since I bought it, and I haven't confirmed whether Microcenter will let me return it or not yet, and I'm afraid of RMA since I don't want to not be able to use my computer for the duration.

Any ideas oh great gods of the PSU section?

Thanks!

Which Corsair 650 PSU? CX600, GS600, TX650, TX650v2, HX650, TX650M, AX650?

Probably just the fan ticking against a wire that wasn't held down properly or something.

Ok, returned the PSU, got a PCP&C Silencer 760 for $99 and it's fixed the issue. Better PSU for less money and it works. Picked up some bawls while I was there with the money I saved.
