Coil Whine5/18/2020 3:19:04 PM

Pros: It powers on, looks nice and robust, installs easily.

Cons: Within 10 days of usage coil whine developed. Every 4-5 seconds for an extended period of time this sound will occur. Loud enough to pierce through the sound of your monitors and at times even your headset. Through a quick search this is also a reported defect on the manufacturers forums.

Overall Review: Don't risk buying this.

Manufacturer Response:
Thank you for your feedback about your experience with these power supplies. Although coil whine is a common occurrence with modern PCs - especially under load - coil whine can occur due to other hardware in the system, specific configurations within the system, and/or power issues within the residence. If necessary, replacement of the power supply is an option, but due to the nature of coil whine, a replacement does not always resolve the issue. We encourage you to reach out to our U.S.-based Customer Service, which is currently open daily from 6AM-10PM PDT. Contact EVGA Customer Service to best assist you at Newegg@evga.com or (888) 881-3842. Please reference ticket number 3845518.
