i dont know but i think you people complaining about coil whine must have gotten one dropped in shipping or something. I own 2 seasonics and they make almost no noise at all. I do maintain my computer regularly by cleaning it out weekly but i love my seasonics and they have treated me well. and as for the guy claiming his seasonic blew up everything in his box i can almost guarantee there was a shrt somewhere like a screw under the mobo or overclocked his machine way past tolerances. for $20 buy a psu tester just plug it in and turn on the psu.

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.

Thank you and very sorry for any inconvenience and I hope the RMA process will be quick and painless.
On a side note, did you first ENABLE all the Energy Savings Modes in the BIOS such as S4 & S5? This is very important for the proper compatibility of the MB & PSU.

Yes, I tried this, stock bios settings, along with my OC settings and all had the same issue.

I plugged in my 760XP2 and this issue is gone.

The RMA process has been good so far, you also offered a cross ship with paypal refund which is great. No downtime!!!

I hope the new 860 works as good as my 760 does.

Update - received my new 860XP2 and the coil whine is gone!!! Overall the RMA process went well, I have no complaints. thumb.gif

Hey guys

Got a question about the X-1050 Seasonic psu

I got this funny thing when i power up the pdu at the back side of my computer. You know that little button at the back.
the psu powers up for say 3 seconds. Then it comes to a halt and completly stops powering up for 1/2 seconds.
It is just like there is no currunt flowing trough the psu.
After 1/2 seconds it starts up again and then it is powering up my rig.

Funny as it can be.

I dont understand why. I never had an psu which did this.

Do you guys got an answer to this problem

Thanks in advance

That is was I was thinking as well

Forgot to mention after I powered it up at the backside I use the normal powerbutton on my rig to start up

But if I draw power from this psu for gaming or other it still delivers.
NO fault what so ever

It is only when it has been completly currentless by the button at te backside.
when I leave it on and I powerup it hasnt got this intterupting power thingy

But RMA is the keyword here ?
Damned. I just put together a month ago !

Cheers
