Corsair HX620W making a loud bang kinda noise when switched on

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a Corsair 620HX for quite some time now, 3 years or possibly more. Lately it has been making a very loud noise whenever it's turned on at the switch in the back.

It sounds like a loud bang.. more like a snap, or the crack of a whip rather than a bang. It's difficult to explain.

Is this something that should worry me? I've recently upgraded my rig, so I took everything out and put it back in but it was doing in the previous rig and in the previous case as well. It's been happening for about 3-4 months or so.

Is this something I should be worried about? as in my power supply is living its last days?

That is not normal. If it's still under warranty, I'd contact Corsair directly and inquire for an RMA.

It should be under warranty. This one was replaced by Corsair previously. It was the same model but that one just stopped working one day. It last pretty much as much as I've had this one.

On another issue does anyone know which PSUs are manufactured by Seasonic for other brands?

Corsair approved my RMA, they're going to replace it!

I'm thinking about getting the Seasonic S12II-620 620w instead and selling the Corsair when I get it biggrin.gif
