    Default Corsair HX650v2 PSU squeaking noise

    Hi,

    My Corsair HX650v2 PSU purchased on Dec 25,2012 and i am noticing some squeaking noise in the first week once in a day or two.
    But yesterday when i was editing photos in Photoshop, PSU is making squeaking sound like every 30 to 40 seconds..

    When i saw the PSU fan through the side window panel what i observed was, the sound is coming when the fan is spinning down but before it stops or slows down completely if it is spinning up that increasing speed.

    Is this the problem on the PSU components like capacitors or just the PSU fan.

    Please suggest what should i do.

    And i more doubt, if i give it for RMA will they give me brand new replacement or will they give a refurbished replacement

    fan have gone kaput.
    I faced similar issue when i was on my CM eXtreme 600. Changed the fan.

    Corsair PSU fans are temp controlled so when PSU providing more power more heat it genrates the fan goes to higher speeds.

    Is the FAN making noise? Is it rotating at all?
    Then go for RMA.

    Corsair dropped the ball on this one, and to think I once owned this PSU, ran like a beast for 3yrs and still serving someone else rather well.

    I guess fan is making the noise. yes the fan is rotating. its making sound only when the speed of fan is about to decrease but again when speed was increased before it comes to a halt

    Just rma it, removing the SMPS is not big of a hassle.

    yes saw all those reviews after facing the issue. I had not done a research completely for this purchase, purchased blindly from suggestions of forum members..

    The HX650 should not had been suggested, no need to pay extra for the modular under 750w, just get a rma asap.

    removing SMPS is not a hassle. But going to service center and being without a computer till i get a replacement is a big hassle.

    If i give it for RMA will they give me brand new replacement or will they give a refurbished replacement

    Ohho, sorry buddy, if I saw your thread, I would've suggested TX650V2, it could power any single GPU setup with ease,or the TX750V2 would come under 7k as well giving you better headroom and no issues like this.

    RMA it, and if the issue is not fixed, make a new thread about how you got screwed.

    I don't know why people are suggesting this, its almost 7k and for that you get a TX750V2, most reliable PSU out there, cable management is not a priority for medium range users, that comes for people willing to shell out 9k and get HX750.

    @leelaprasad
    The PSU linked in your thread for suggestion was HX650 80+bronze which can be verified from the url,also theitwares still shows only hx650 bronze.
    My friend has this one from more than a year and it is running fine.
    I think this noise related issue with fan is related to HX650 80+Gold series PSU.
    HX650 was suggested since you were willing to spend up to 10k and while being modular it also comes with 2 years of warranty more.
    Anyway,all the best with RMA.

    Guys my PSU stopped making the squeaking from yesterday night, tried to do the same things during which the squeaking sound came. But now the PSU is super calm

    And how do we differentiate a HX650 & HX650v2 because at snapdeal where i purchased CORSAIR CMPSU-650HX 650 Watts PSU - Buy Computer Components @ Best Price | Snapdeal also it is showing as HX650 only, i thought HX650 was discontinued and only HX650v2 is available as of now, it thats wrong it may be my mistake

    Bro... I am not blaming any one, i just want to alert the forum members so that it will benefit other members, and i am not concerned about extra money spend.

    literally speaking i don't know now what version i am having 80+Bronze or 80+Gold.

    Major difference is the no: of 6+2 PCI-E connector supported by the PSU,
    Corsair HX650 Bronze has 4*6+2 Pin PCI-E Connector(using split cable) whereas the GOLD has only 2*6+2 PCI-E connector for GPU.
