Strange Buzz in Corsair GS800 Power Supply

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey fellas, I'm calling all the owners of the Corsair Gaming Series 800W to help me solve this issue.

My power supply started to make a noise when the fan is about to spin, its a small buzz clearly audible, since the fan is thermal activated, spins every now and then, the noise is annoying. sometimes when the fan is stopped the buzz is permanent until the fan starts spinning again
I already stopped all my fans including my video card's and cpu cooler and I detected the noise comes from the Power Supply.

I also have noticed that it feels a little warm, I am really afraid is gona fry some of my components, I always have trusted Corsair but in this one im really wondering if I made a good choice.

Is anyone having the same issue or is just me. The Power Supply is 2 months old.

Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

I uploaded a video to show the issue.

Thank you for the reply, I also have searched and found out that this issue is common, its really annoying, I requested an RMA from Corsair, Im not happy with this PSU.

Yes, that buzzing sound from the fan starting and stopping would be very annoying to me too. frown.gif
