Power Supply Humming Normal?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So my new build was completed on saturday everything went fine but my PSU seems to be humming slightly is this normal? The sound is not loud but it's a bit annoying, I didnt notice it until I installed the Asus motherboard drivers and utilities, I found one complaint online saying that Asus Ai suite 3 caused his PSU to hum could this be the problem or is a humming PSU totally normal.By the way my PSU is the EVGA Supernova 1000 G2.

I would not describe it as a loud electrical buzzing noise it's more of a gentle constant hum like hum...hum...hum.
