MY PSU!!!!!!

hi guyz,


this is a loooooooooooooong story so plz red it carefully and help me


As i bought Antec HCG620 in Jan2012 and now its starting creating noise like buzzing when u inserted the socket and gets higher when u start the PC. But as I worried that GTX560ti and my other components are in danger!!! I removed the supply and showed to many ppl. some said that Coil whinning, some said its dead now some said its all about fan. But 1 day i opened PSU unit and unplugged the fan, and ran my psu, no sound and after many test it was confirmed that something's wrong with fan's motor. Then I plugged it again, and ran 8 tests, no sound again and silent everything. I was about to buy a new PSU but I tried and got well. But after again inserting PSU, 2nd on run, again that sound m hearing like about 20db, before it was 60db :O


PLZ PLZ PLZ GUYZ HELP ME TELL ME what happened to my PSU, will it work in future , or it is about to die?? Or should I get new one, which i cant :"( I got this rig after many struggle and now I cant spend on it, i wished for a quiet PC but ....................... :"( :"( :"(


i think I should go for CoolerMaster or just buy a laptop thats it, gaming ova foreva!


PLZ PLZ PLZ Take notice and help me!!!! :"( :"( :"(

  1. 20db, thats quiet, if you want it to be more quiet take the fan off....

    The best thing you should do is buy a quality PSU, coolermaster aren't that great at making power supplys, quality PSUs are more expensive but are usually better quality and are more reliable.

    Corsair and seasonics are good PSU manufacturers...
  2. Dude there is a problem, in my area only CM, Silverstone, Corsair but GS series and AX800w+ but i dont need 800 its costly and xigmatek available, plz any other option??
  3. It;s under warranty - send it back.^ it's seasonic guts in the Antec - good unit.

  4. Guyz, plz do me a favor, idk if somebody have these specs here but check that is my PSU providing everything fine to mobo?

  5. And secondly, i cant claim for waranty, cuz it came from Canada and m in Asian country :/
  6. Your 12V rail is apparently way below what voltage it should be.

  10. Most likely, you could test it with a multimeter to get more accurate results, they don't cost much.

    Then thats good, you don't have waste money on a power supply if you don't want to but just incase you want to be on the safe side.
    Some thing like this-

    Expensive but better quality than Antec....
