So what should I do to fix this eventually? RMA is the only solution?

RMA it, or slather all the inductors in the PSU with nail varnish.

Nail varnish is non-conductive, and seals the coils in place so they can't vibrate.

Of course, if the loose coils are in a wrapped inductor or transformer then you're SOL.

I've just contacted the retailer I bought it from, and they say it's a quite common issue with the HX1000 from Corsair making electical sounds.

Seems like it's going to be a RMA after all... It's going to be the second RMA with a Corsair HX1000....

Okay a guy from the retailer just called me, he told me I could get my money back when I send the PSU back to them since this problem with the HX1000 is very common.

But since I'm going to to make my system very extreme in the near future, I'm going to invest in a 1200w PSU instead.

So which one do you recommend:
Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200W PSU
or
Corsair AX 1200W PSU

The Corsair is a lot more expensive compared to the CM, but is it worth it?
