Ok, so my T2 850 has arrived few days ago but as I do not have all the parts ready for a build yet I did not bother unpacking it so far. Had few minutes today so decided to check it out.
Looks nice, good finish quality. I found in the box 24pin tester so I though I will give it a try.
Ok, so here is where problems start. It is dead silent when plugged into wall and charged so to say but once powered "on" via tester it has faint buzzing... now this is not acceptable for me, I will only accept dead silent unit as I am building silent PC. Dead silent was one of the reasons (main) I went for Titanium series. Both of my HX 450 and HX 850 are dead silent so this one should be also as it is even higher grade then HX series.
I will be returning it. The only question that remains is: should I ask for replacement unit or should I return it for a refund and go for different brand? This is where I hope for your help guys.
So my question is - does your T2 units buzzes when powering your rigs (or powering tester). If it is a "feature" or common enough situation then I am requesting a refund and going for another brand. If your units are dead silent and I am just unlucky then I will be asking for a replacement unit and I will give it one more shot.
The buzzing is faint. I can hear it from 30-40cm maybe max and to hear it really well like a quiet conversation I have to put my ear against the PSU. I know some of you may say if it is so quiet then maybe it should not bother me but it does so lets not go there
. As I said I am only interested in dead silent and perfect unit in this regard.
I did not go for AXi series as buzzing and coil whine plus ticking fan seems to be a common enough problems. Not so much with EVGA psus... but it seems I was unlucky. My unit came factory sealed so for sure it was not a reject of any kind.
Thanks guys for any input on the above.Edited by sebna - 6/4/16 at 1:36pm
