CorsaiCXV2 600 WATT PSU buzzing/coil whine

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have the CMPSU-600CX2 psu and is working fine(using it to type this). I left my computer running (not on full load) for 3 days straight to download BF3 using my slow internet and now the power supply has developed a noticeable buzzing/coil whine. The power supply didn't have this level of coil whine not until a day ago when I found out. Is there a way to test whether this is harmless or not? I do know that the 2nd version of the builder series are made with cheap parts so it's fine to hear coil whine. I know that this should be "named" as a 480 watt unit, but nonetheless, it should be fine with my system. Thanks.

Not anything you can do really other then RMA if the coil whine bothers you too much

Thanks for the reply. I will only RMA if the PSU is dead or messed up. I'll just ignore the coil whine then.

Other than the sound it makes, there's nothing actually wrong with the unit itself. It's just that one of the coils is vibrating at a frequency that makes a sound, which is normal with power supplies.

As said though, there's not much that you can do to stop the sounds either.
