Coil whine from a PSU?

Normally it comes from the GPU, try take out the GPU and see if the noise is still there.

PSU coil wine can come from different issues. I had coil wine on a PSU that was in a mining rig. Obviously running at high capacity running a few GPU's when plugged back into my gaming PC the coil wine stopped. So it was only wining at a higher usage.
Now that being said I contacted the retailer anyway to see if I could do something about that wine. They said if I can prove the coil wine is there and loud they will RMA the PSU. Make sure you have video, sound evidence.

RMA that sucker and get a brand new sealed PSU. Sellit or use it.

OR

Bad deals that mofo that sold an item that was actually 1 year older. I take my warranties seriously


P.S its possible his PC uses less watts than yours which is why he didnt hear the coil wine, or he is lying :unsure:
Thanks for the input.
99% confident it was mined with as I bought some dusty cards off him a few years ago.
I unplugged my gpu and only have m.2 drives so shouldn't pull to much.
I will gladly send a video I took last night (with the noise) to any one who pm's me in order to judge for yourselves.

My thoughts exactly and removed the gpu but to no avail.

Ja nee. Long remaining warranty can add to an items allure (and price)
"1+" gives it grey area, but then I might as well sell all my items as aged "6 months + " :LOL:

Daar is 'n moerse verskil tussen 1+ en 2+
Soos 'n 18 jarige en 18 1 jarige's

Mine also has slight coil whine, but the psu I bought is louder than it.
And as mentioned, I removed the gpu and still the sound persisted. Irriterend.

1+ year would tell me it's between 1 year and about 18 months. 2.5 years is not 1+ year. Seems to me like a deliberate attempt to hide the actual age, but maybe that's just me.

Just tag the seller, so he can take note of current situation on here as well, and maybe he will come to the party, if not, open Bad Deals Thread, as its false advertising.

I'm sending him constant messages, but he couldn't be bothered. Comes online here and posts other stuff. I don't know if he is aware that you can see when he online either here or on whatsapp.
He can chime in on the bad deals thread if he doesn't play ball.

OK, so he still claims the issue was non-existent prior to the sale.
I'll take it to the supplier today.
Bad deal thread will come later.
Nou vra julle mense hoekom rook ek. Want mense het fokol respek meer vir hulle medemens.
