Seasonic 1000w Platinum - Sounds like a fly stuck on a window

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
My PSU has a buzzing sound to it when you put your ear to it. When sitting normal at my chair, I get a faint high pitched noise that comes and goes and it gets really annoying. Anyone know what the heck is happening?

Might be some of the components crackling inside the PSU. Usually that is normal. If the PSU new?

Could be a bad fan, maybe take out the fan and oil the bearings? I assume its a 120mm fan right? You can follow the same guide as some case fan tutorials to clean it.

I can check mine when I get home but I usually can't hear anything over my Delta fan on the H60. biggrin.gif

It's when I put my ear close to the exhaust. It's got a consistent buzzing sound. Never had that with other PSUs. And since I put this PSU in, there's a high pitched noise that constantly comes and goes. Sounds like tinnitus in the ear when there's complete silence.

I know the high pitched sound is usually coming from caps or resistors. Not sure which. Usually is normal. Is this the first higher end PSU you have owned?

Yes there is a small high pitch whine coming from the exhaust of the psu but I can only hear it if I put my ear right to it. It is inaudible if you're not right up to it.
