Loud 650TX

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've determined my psu is the loudest part of my system. Is the 650TX normally loud or do you think I just have a bad one?

I have x2 AP14 Gentle Typhoons (front intake & rear exhaust) and x2 AP13 (push-pull on 212+)
I also have some FrozenCPU sound dampening on my side panels.
My xfx 6870 dual fan is also extremely quiet. I can hardly hear any of these fans unless I put my ear up close to them.

The psu fan is the exception. Sitting a few feet away from the case I hear a low sort of hum/reverb sound that is coming from the bearings on the 650TX's fan. The 690ii has rubber feet for the psu so it should not be making that much noise.

What are my options besides replacing / RMAing the psu? I really don't want to have to redo all my cable management. I also really don't like how cramped the back panel is with non-modular cables. So, if I am going to take it out I will probably replace it and sell the one I get back from RMA.

Any suggestions for a silent modular psu?

even though I shouldn't, I'm considering splurging on this for $110

That is one sexy psu.

Blow some compressed air through the thing, and laugh as copious amounts of dust come flying out, and then enjoy the silence.

I have a 650TX and I'm not hearing anything coming from it. You got one lemon 650TX.

RMA it as soon as possible if it's still covered.

My old 400w Corsair was doing that (after 3 years of use) and I had to replace the fan - Now it's dead silent again.

I've already done that. Lots of dust came out, but it didn't make a difference in the noise level.

I will probably RMA. It just sucks that corsair makes you pay return shipping.
