It does this wheezing sound, a slight whistling, followed by a what sounds like a finished tea pot. Obviously not optimal.

SO, my question here is what PSU are you guys using, and have you had any issues with it being placed on its side? I'm going to be honest here, I'd be embarrassed to show someone my system with it making sounds like it's dying or something.

Anyway thanks. thumb.gif

show them your system while its off then lol. jk tongue.gif.

mine is HX850 and no problema so far. but got this random voice telling me to replace it with Seasonic 1000w platinum full modular.

Got rid of the nasty clear plastic that came with it. Don't mind the octopus living inside.

Seasonic X660 here
okay so far
its not a vibration or rattle that a piece of self stick thin black weatherstripping placed on the movable support bracket would help?
would let PS rest on that between PS and bracket

Have you tried putting the GPU rads on the front and CPU up top?

Yea it isn't rattling. It sounds like coil whine mixed with something else. I didn't notice it while gaming, but when I was moving files between my HDD (all of my steam games to new one) it sounded really bad at times.

I'll see how it ends up. I really don't feel like replacing it, but damned if it isn't annoying when it happens.

*If I do move PSU, it will be a Seasonic. I was going to get one when I got this PSU, but, I got a great deal on Newegg. $100 + $20 MIR. So, I got it for $80. Hard to pass that up, and it served me well for the last 5 or 6 months. (heck even right now it's $115 after mail in, but more like $122 w/shipping, I got mine for $80 =)

The air coming through the CPU radiator is cooler than the air coming through the GPU radiators generally as the cpu radiator dissipates the heat in a larger area. The hottest thing in my case while gaming is my primary GPU which touches about 43c. It hits about 50c on a 3dmark graphics test 1 custom loop with everything on max after about an hour. But yeah in answer to your question ive tried it tongue.gif. Heres my flow map!

So you don't hear that noise while system is under heavy load? but more obvious when you are simply moving files between HDDs? Are you certain that is coming from the PSU and not those drives? Try disabling some of the power saving features in BIOS and see if there will be any improvements. See link

If the noise becomes more frequent and it gets worse and to the point that the noise is unbearable, then I would take advantage the PSU's warranty.You can always get that unit replaced via RMA.
