I have 3 platinum PSUs from Seasonic and my latest one (860XP2) has significant coil whine. It was really noticeable at first but after a couple days it got pretty bad. Customer service was really helpful in the RMA process and I should have the replacement shortly.

I never thought that "coil whine" was really and issue either, but sounds like when its noticeable, its bad. You have two good units and thats how it should be thumb.gif

To me both quality and customer service count, and in my experience Seasonic has been good in both.
