Seasonic X850 single "tick" sound

hi, I recently bought a Seasonic X850 and every time I turn on/power down my PC the PSU makes a not so loud single "tick" sound
is this normal?

p.s. the system is running fine with p95, games, etc.

thanks in advance.

    Is this a one time sound or does it continue? If it continues, I would RMA the unit as this is not normal. If it is a one time sound, I would just live with it.
  2. It's a singular tick sound every time the PC/PSU powers on and shuts down. any more info would be appreciated.
  3. Ignore it. It's just the PSU doing it's thing. Nothing to worry about.

    +1 my XFX 750w does the same thing. I think its probably just the fan stopping or something. Either way, its nothing unusual :)

    I don't think it's the fan stopping/starting because the X-series doesn't even turn the fan on until a certain % of load is drawn.
    but it's still good to hear that it's nothing to be worried about. I also emailed seasonic and i will try to get back on this post when I receive a reply.

    Dear customer,

    Thanks for contacting Seasonic - Customer Service Dept.
    That's normal and as long as it's not continuously.

    Thank you.
    "

    good to hear.
