    Seasonic X-660 buzzing

    Hi,

    When I first bought the PSU in Dec 2012, it was quiet. However, this month it started to emit a whirling/buzzing type of sound, abit like a cross between a fan and hdd on seek (except I observed the psu fan is not moving even when sound is present). At first I thought it was something else but have more or less isolated it to the PSU..

    I also tested that the sound is present if connected via different power source, and even if I disconnect my hdds or PCI-e for my gfx card or casing fans - I thought maybe it would have been related to the load or smps of the fans, but maybe not.

    The sound is not very loud but enough for me to be able to hear it from 4-5m away (my PC is 4-5m away from my monitor), louder than all the low rpm fans in my PC, and enough for gf to comment.. the sound seems to be relatively constant.

    Tried to google for coil whine online.. the sound doesn't match the issue I have.

    Does this sound like something I should be concerned about and should I get someone to take a look at it? What other tests can I do?

    If I bring down to service center at AMK, what do I need to do/bring?

    My Seasonic fanless PSU in another PC is very quiet in comparison.

    Hi There,

    Apologies for the late reply.
    Generally, it shouldn't be a problem.
    But definitely you can bring it down to our service center for a check.
    Just the unit itself will do.
