Hello. I have a recent build with a Corsair TX650 PSU that made an annoying clicking/ticking sound at low load and without the fan running. It was returned, but the replacement makes the same sound. I wondered if any members have experience with this model. If this is the sound it will always make, I need to put away money towards something else instead of paying any more shipping needlessly. I had read a positive review of the model here (although it is now retired from the recommended PSU list, and I think mine is a later version in any case. My model is CMPSU-650X) and it's a shame that it's the loudest part of the system (Fractal R4 with the 2 stock fans as front intakes, a Phanteks 140mm exhaust and an i5 with 212 Evo cooler- stock fan replaced with Scythe Slipstream). Here is a video (not mine) of a unit making a similar sound. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWE9e9ZEJOE Any input greatly appreciated.

I had a similar issue with my Rosewill SilentNight. I turned off this "power loading" feature in my BIOS (Z87 Gigabyte) under the power management system. After about a week, the buzz in my PSU finally went away. I had tried about everything before this and also RMAed and still had the same problem.

I hope this helps!

I've tried disabling every power-saving cpu feature I could find. Nothing has helped so far. This is on an Asrock Z77 board.

Corsair is offering to upgrade me to an HX650, which seems like enough of an upgrade to justify a trip to the UPS store. If anybody has any dire warnings that the HX series will only make the problem worse, now would be the time for them. :)

The HX650 has been installed and is quiet. Finally.
