Can a (new) PSU cause coil whine or not? Finding conflicting information on this. Had a Corsair AX750 before and never noticed it on my 6G. Recently built a new pc with the Corsair RM750 PSU, and now I notice coil whine on this card. Really strange, and I do wonder if a PSU can cause this. Mind, I had the card in a closed case before and now with a window, so maybe that's the reason I notice it now.

To be clear, it's not the gpu that seems to whine, it's either my graphics card or (I suppose that would make more sense) my mainboard? Is that possble? It's an Asus Hero VIII.

The RM series PSUs are not that good IMO. I think the AX750 is a better model. I had a 780ti with a RM650 and the Coil whine dissapeared when I switched the RM650 to my friend's AX750 that he gave me.

Hello Guys,

I'm new here but i just want to share my very first water cooled pc-build with you.

Specs:
PSU: Corsair AX1500i
GPU's: 2 x EVGA 980Ti SC (Asic 72&71)
RAM: 32Gb Geil Super Luce DDR4 (Cas: 16-18-18-36@3400mhz)
CPU: 5960X @ 4.6Ghz with 1.32v
Mobo:ASUS Rampage V Extreme
OS Storage: 500Gb Samsung 950 Pro nVME SSD
Mass storage: 2 x 1Tb 850 Pro SSD (Raid 0)

Cooling:

I have two independent water loops. in each loop are 2 EKWB-D5-PWM pumps for reliability in case one of them is dying.

GPU-Loop: 1 x 560 radiator,
1 x 480 radiator,
1 x 240 radiator

CPU-Loop: 1 x 480 radiator,
1 x 240 radiator

I have a total of 20 fans in this system. i used the Noiseblocker PL/PK1 with 700rpm because low noise was the goal here wink.gif
Temps for both GPU's never go above 50 degrees and the CPU is maxed out at 60 degrees. you simply can't hear anything while gaming. the loudest part of the system is no the buzzing of the PSU biggrin.gif
i use a Aquero 5 and 6 Pro for controlling the fan & pump speed.

Asthetics:
All cables are custom sleeved. Every pipe has a led in the bottom/top making the pipes glow red.
in the bottom & top are 2 RGB-led strips with can be controlled via the ''Farbwerk'' from aqua computer.

Setup:
Monitor : ROG Swift PG279Q @ 170hz
Keyboard: Razor Ultimate Chroma RGB
Mouse: Mad Catz R.A.T 5
Chair: AkRacing Player Gaming Chair
Headset: Triton 5.1 Pro

Here are some pic's. please tell me what you think.

Cheers,
SLP

That is an awesome rig. Nice job.

the irony being the RM was designed specifically to address noise and coil whine, which was a virtual plague on the AX units. biggrin.gif

I may just be lucky, I've been using an RM850 for just over a year now and have not had any issue or heard any noises other than fans in my system. I've actually been concerned that my RM850 is faulty because I never hear the fan, but I do have it pointed down and haven't actually checked to see if it does turn on under load but I haven't had any issues with my PC since installing it so it seems to be working fine.

when stressing the gpu (like in games), I have a feeling it's located around the cpu (but very hard to determine). could this be an issue with these grey coils around the cpu area?

Stick your ear up to a paper towel roll and point it at stuff till you find it.
