These units should arrive within the next few weeks. At that time we will ship you a unit that has the fix implemented. Once you receive the newer unit, please return the old unit to Corsair.

Also, rest assured that aside from the noise, the whine/buzz noise you hear should not cause any harm to your system or other components within, merely an annoyance to the user. As such, your components should not show any ill effects or be caused any damage by buzzing or whine noise heard. Thanks.â€

Interesting. What are you going to do if the new unit is good? (like use the unit, sell it, or review it?)
I can only hope that they fix this. Its rather disappointing to see corsair's products not being as reliable or as good quality as they used to be.

Well if my new unit is working properly I'll use it, but for any future purchase of Corsair product I'll be very hesitant.

I can't go into detail but it's not a defective component per se. If it was, we would advise you to not use the unit.
