    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.

    Check Amazon & Newegg reviews for HX650 GOLD Edition

    Amazon.com: Corsair Professional Series* HX 650 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Gold (HX650): Computers & Accessories

    Same complaint even with RMA'd PSU -> HX650v2 got a terrible fan chirping noise.

    Same at new egg: Newegg.com - CORSAIR Professional Series HX650 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

    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.
