Annoying noise!!! Be aware of this issue before buy!!!
on 17 June 2016
For first few months it was all OK. Later on known issue with coils kicked in. I'm using Asus Sabertooth 990fx r2.0 MOBO with Asus software to modulate amount of power distributed to CPU, RAM etc. Slight above default amount of power allocated results in awfully annoying noise from this PSU. I don't know how this affects PC performance but for me noise is enough reason to claim this product unacceptable. I'll never buy corsair PSU again. I've read that RMA (returning product) procedure is painfull for customers and Corsair claims that it isn't their fault - when it is.
Noise is still present while I play games whitout tweaked settings. Not as loud but still.
If one doesn't mind noise - this product is OK. But if someone values quiet environment to play and work - keep looking for something better.
