[Official] Corsair HX/AX Series Owners Club - Page 21

post #201 of 789
Timechanger - and anyone else who bought the new HX 1050 - I'm hearing a click when I turn on, or wake up computer from 'sleep' mode, like a light switch being turned on. Turns out I found out from another OCN member that he spoke w/Corsair and they said that was normal.

Curious is anyone else hearing the 'click'?

Also anyone know the answer to my previous question regarding registering the PSU with Corsair to keep it under warranty?

I never got around to registering mine (HX650) a few months ago when I built my first rig. frown.gif Kinda wish I did now...

Sometimes I can hear a really low sounding squeak-like noise that I think is coming from the fan. I have to have my ear almost directly on the side of my case to hear it. Is this a bad bearing on the fan or something else? Should I even worry? I've had no issue with my rig since I built it a few months ago. Thanks a bunch for the help! biggrin.gif

Feel free to answer Arizonian's question first. I don't want to cut in line. biggrin.gif

Yup the click noise at startup and shut down is there for me as well and yes its normal according to Corsair. Takes a bit of getting used to but meh when the PC is running, the PSU is dead silent so Im very okay with it smile.gif

As for registering your power supply, you dont have to register it. If anything ever goes wrong with your PSU, simply submit an RMA form and they will take care of the rest. So guys if youre having a problem with your Corsair PSU, do not worry at all, theyve got you covered

By the way I didnt purchase this HX1050. Those nice folks at Corsair sent me this for free after my HX1000 became faulty. Not that much of a gain since they both retail at the same price but I actually like this PSU more due to the simple single rail design and the aesthetics. Oh and also the 80Plus silver efficiency is nice to have as well cheers.gif

Thanks for your response. +1 rep. There is a difference between the HX 1000 and HX 1050.....the 1000 is essentially two 500 watt psu's combined as the 1050 is all in one psu. Those running 580's in SLI had some issues on heavily over clocked rigs for some folks at EVGA website and that was discussed why on their forums.

Was curious though how do they know when we've purchased them? I'd imagine one has to keep their reciept at least?

No receipt or serial required. All they care about is getting faulty Corsair PSU's off the streets.

The 'click' is audible on my AX1200 as well. Coming from an HX750, which didn't make any sound at all, was surprising at first, but it doesn't hurt anything. Now that I'm used to it, it gives me that audible cue that my computer is definitely turned on or off.

Regarding warranty, Corsair are a good bunch that offer a hassle free experience, without the need to register your products. I have worked with them on three separate occasions over DDR2 Dominators and my first HX750. When the initial attempts at resolving one of my issues were unsuccessful, I reached out to Redbeard on [H] (who also posts here every so often) and he was able to put me in touch with someone in Customer Service that made things right again. All the while, there was no mention at all about warranty validity, serial numbers, nor receipts. I always received a newly packaged replacement, and the confidence that they would have my back to make me happy in the end.

This may make me a "fanboy", but if Corsair makes it, I'm willing to weigh it more heavily in my purchasing decision based on excellent customer support alone. biggrin.gif

I imagine, they probably can find a manufacturing date or batch number on the PSU itself, but really by the time you actually reach the end of the original 7 year warranty period, one (or a combination) of several things will happen:

1. It died and Corsair replaced it with a brand new unit.
2. It died and Corsair upgraded you to an entirely different PSU altogether, which would carry a new warranty.
3. It goes on to live and work well past its warranty period.
4. You upgrade at least once, if not more, on your main rig.

With how fast technology moves and how influential this forum can be, I'm willing to bet that the majority will have moved on well before their PSU's even begin to start breaking in. wink.gif
