  1. V750 Noise

    Hi there.. Plz help me.. I bought a brand new V750 Full Modular... but when it starts it makes a (TAK) sound.. and after shuts down same noise again....
  2. Hello I have bought a G550M power supply about 1.5 years ago. I have a small pc on the desk and I could hardly hear the fan of the power supply. I have bought this power supply because according to tests (e.g. https://www.technic3d.com/review/netzteile/1621-cooler-master-g550m-netzteil-im-test/1.htm) this was very silent for the price. About 4 Months ago this power supply stopped working. I did get a replacement but it was much much louder. It made a sound as if there was something wrong with the ball bearings. I wrote an email to brack.ch and they said I should send it back. After this I did get new power supply. But this time the fan made another noise (as if the plastic of the fan scratches on the case). This time I called the company and the technician said that there were freqent problems with these power supplies. I could send it back again. I got a third replacement which after only about 1-2 days use made the same sound as the first replacement. It was actually worse so that I sent the new replacement back. My question is: Does it make sense to send it back again or are the current series of this product louder? Do they have different fans? I have already paid the postage three times and this did cost me already about 25% of the purchase price. I might just look for another power supply but then this would have been the last one from Cooler Master. I have attached two videos of the different noises the second and third replacements make.

  3. I really thought these were going to be the best fans on the market. Theyre a combination of a good coolermaster fan reminiscent of the xtraflo fan from the 212 evo, and RGB LEDS which can never go wrong. The big issue is noise. These things sound like a lawnmower. The noise gets worse at higher rpms and much better at lower rpms so its not bearing noise, its a form of coil whine. Theres also control issues such as the fan not even going to 0 rpms on pwm, and if you use voltage, the leds turn off as you lower the voltage. The PCB is too bloated. The design has 4 super bright leds, a pwm mosfet, probably some led mosfets, 4 giant radial coils, an overcomplicated driver and finally, the leds are powered off of the fan header instead of the simpler solution of just using RGB power.
  4. V8 GTS noise/hiss

    Good morning, I recently bought a Fractal Design Define R5 case. I installed 3 Fractal Design silent fans, the X2 GP-14, 2 in front and one in the back. My cpu fan as you see is the V8 GTS with two fans. I ran all the fan tuning software from ASUS (AI Suite 3) it calibrated the fan just fine but at around 400 rpm till over 1000 rpm, the fans are making a high pitch noise that grows as rpm rise up. The setup is absolutely silent and this hiss is totally annoying. Before starting thinking of other cooling solutions, can you help me with this issue? Is it a fan problem? An inside the box air-flow issue? The box fans are connected to the case's fan speed control, I set them to silent, medium and high in case there's something wrong with the air flow that creates this problem with the cpu fans but that's not the case. I really love the design of the V8, it's like a jewel on my rig, but this noise is intolerable. Thanks for your time!
  5. CM690 III - Vibration Noise

    Hi, I have an CM690III , but there is some vibration noise (due to the fan's in the system - three: CPU, FRONT 220mm, BACK 160mm) The noise seems to originate from the front plate and\or from the side panels. If it is the front plate, then I'm inclined to blame the BAY plates. If it is the side plates, then I'm inclined to blame the side-pvc window. The type of noise is that caracteristic of plastic-metal vibration. It is not from the HDD (only one in the build), if I remove the front plate the vibration (the most agressive one) seems to go away. If I just remove the front plate, there is a light 'huming' sound. If I remove both side plates and the front plate, then there is no vibration sound at all. If I touch the chassis or press it in some way, the vibration goes away. After sometime the vibration cease to be. What can I do to fix this issue? Rubber feets? cork sheets? glue? etc Any ideas are welcome. Best regards, Fábio R.
  6. Cooler Master V750 Semi-Modular noise

    Hi, I have "Cooler Master V750 - Compact 750W 80 PLUS Gold Semi-Modular PSU". When I connect it to power cord I am getting a buzzing noise similar to this. When I switch-off the on PSU power button I still get the same noise. I am already using a surge protector and my electricity connection is grounded. I am not using any PCI GPU. Is this coil whine? I have just purchased a new GPU which will be arriving in ~November. I don't want to damage it. What should I do now? Product was bought from amazon and it's about a year old.
  7. Good day, I just purchased the above mentioned headset and found that the minute usb is plugged in the headphones get extremely irritating buzzing/static/white noise. I tried connecting the headset directly using the 3.5mm jacks(without using the "puck") and it worked fine, no noise...until I once again plugged in the usb which comes with the jacks and the noise starts again. PSU is a Corsair H1100 (I think...) which is plugged into a surge protector. I did try plugging the headset into a laptop and the noise persisted...even if the power cord is out... As long as an USB is connected, the noise is there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Brand new V1000 static noise

    Hi, Yesterday I purchased a new V1000 to replace an old PSU and I can't seem to figure out how to eliminate this annoying static noise. It goes quiet at times but is constant when browsing the internet. My old Corsair PSU didn't have this problem in particular but had coil whine which was fixed changing the power saving options in BIOS. This current noise is only present when the PC is on. I'm also using a Belkin PureAV Series 8-Way Isolator to power my devices which is supposed to filter interference. Any help would be much appreciated as I can't find a solution anywhere. Thank you.

  9. Noisy Fan G600 PSU

    Hi, I'm a bit desapointed by my new power supply G600W. The fan (supposed to be quiet) is really noisy compared to the rest of my configuration. That's why i was thinking about changing it. Does anyone have the exact specifications (rpm, CFM, voltage range...) of the fan mounted in the PSU to be able to find one with the closest spec. Found anything on the internet, except that it's a 120mm fan and most likely, it's a 2 pin fan with voltage control Thanks !
  10. Glacier 240L very loud

    OK Im going to be as specific as possible. The pump sounds like a fish tank pump and is overpowering in my room. I am using the motherboard Gigabyte Z68A-D3H-B3. Here is a diagram of the fan inputs on the board: Currently I have a NOCTUA PWM Y-CABLE coming off the CPU_FAN 1 The 3 pin connector is going to the fans and the 4 pin connector is going to the pump. These are my BIOS options: The CPU Smart FAN Control is set to NORMAL CPU Smart FAN Mode is Auto OK...thats the current setup and Im just guessing that my pump is either running nonstop FULLSPEED....or there is some problem with it. Any help or suggestions for adjustments are greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi I just bought the notepal XL (2 days ago), when I start the fan it sounds like an aircompresser that starts up. When I turn it off (but the fan is still spinning) it doesn't make a sound. Is this normal? P.S. I've attached a recording (in real it's a lot louder). notepal XL.mp3
  12. This is an open/close self solved issue. Though, I just wanted to put it out there in case anyone else came across a similar situation. Needless to say I sometimes work at night when things are quiet and recently started to notice a high pitch ringing coming from my CM Storm Recon mouse. Keep in mind it was a faint sound, but the frequency was such that it would cause fatigue and distraction. I understand that most people tend to game and are usually listening to music, headphones or have some level of background noise. So, please excuse me for my unique situation. Moving on, I was about to issue a RMA for what I thought was a faulty capacitor or some other anomaly when I came across the root cause. Just to note, the support staff had not heard of this complaint. Eric was very helpful and indicated a RMA would likely result in a replacement. It turns out that the frequency emitted by this optical mouse is directly correlated to a couple things: the surface of the mouse pad and the distance the mouse is from the pad. As a result this is exactly why I did not notice the high pitch noise prior. I recently changed mouse pads. If this is something that is affecting you try a different mouse pad or surface and it should solve the issue. The mouse pad that caused the issue for me in particular was the Mionix Sargas 900. Keep in mind this is a great feeling surface and very soft but for some reason would cause the optical sensor to ring just at the right frequency to drive my up the wall. When I moved back to the Razer Destructor 2, which is a hard surface, the frequency changed so that I no longer hear that strange frequency. I also noticed that a solid wood desk does not exhibit any annoying ringing either, but I would not suggest that for pinpoint accurate mouse use. I can literally move the mouse from one pad to the other and hear the difference. Not that I was looking for trouble, but I am glad that it was the combination of factors and not the wonderful Recon Mouse. In fact, I just ordered a second one for my other PC. Cheers, Andrew
  13. Resonance 200mm case fan, CM 690 iii

    Hey all, I hear low resonance sound coming from the 200mm case fan in the front. It's not that loud, but i do hear it. It is that pulsating sound. It's enough to be annoying I didn't see any other topic about this, but maybe someone can let me know if they hear this also and if it is normal for that 200mm fan. I got some of that "double coated tissue tape" together with the screws with my case. I think i will try if that helps and re-install the fan later this week. Could it be that the fan maybe isn't not running at the right RPM? I connected the fan to the motherboard (SYS_FAN1) and it is running at around 760 RPM. Will it run also 760 rpm when i connect it to the psu? A quick side question. I also ordered a 200mm Megaflow Blue fan and i will install that at the top. Is it easy to install and is it more quiet? I noticed that fan runs at 700 rpm (accordeon to the specs) and not at 760.
