I have this PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... -_-Product
This is the most expensive PSU I've ever purchased and I thought it would be the best and very quiet. So far I was wrong.
The fan isnt supposed to spin at idle, or at least I think it isnt:
Hybrid Fan Control Hybrid mode when activated, allows your fan to stay off when your computer is idle but turns on automatically when the PSU needs it. The fan operates silently under light load and switches to Quiet Mode (16dBA) when it reaches 20% load or 25°C, and switch to Cooling Mode when it reaches 50% load.
Mine is not anywhere near silent at idle. Its the loudest PSU I have. When I tried playing a game the PSU sounded like a jet engine and even after quitting the game it continues being loud. If I position the PSU in any way other than fan down it will make a chirping noise. I did RMA the PSU but the replacement makes the exact same noise so I guess its supposed to be this way?
Very disappointed. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Am I doing something wrong?
