Seasonic SS-460FL Pulsing Whine

So I replaced my old Nexus Value 430 with a Seasonic SS-460 and it ended up being louder than the Nexus. At first the Seasonic had a slight whine to it but it was hard to hear and you really had to put your ear right next to it to hear it. A few days later and it developed this loud pulsing, buzzing...

Holy crap, that is a big power draw at idle! Are you running CnQ? I would have though that your system would idle a lot closer to 100W than 200W at most unless you have a lot of HDs in the system. I forgot that my LCD monitor was plugged in and on at the time. I turned it off and measure it again, ...

Green Everyday PC Advice

I was debating whether this should go into the System Advice or the Green Computing forum and I finally decided that my inherent goal was green computing more than silent computing, the silent factor will just be a byproduct of the green computer.
