The power source (UPS or wall outlet) will not cause this problem. There is clearly a some component that is defected. It could be a cap but transformers are notorious for singing too.

Before buying/replacing parts, I would pull the motherboard and inspect your installation job to be 200% certain no foreign object is under your motherboard, or you did not insert an extra standoff...

Assuming the batteries don't develop an internal short, they are like any battery and they get weaker. In a flashlight (torch), the light is not as bright. In a UPS, the runtime and/or the amount of...

Assuming you meant to say, "until PowerChute says to do it" I would manually run the test and see what happens. Note the PowerChute test only lasts a few seconds. And if you look at the PowerChute...

Sorry for coming in late here.

How many years? I am a strong proponent that EVERY computer needs to be on a "good" UPS with AVR. So kudos to you for having your sensitive computer and network...

I cannot recall, except for glass items, having the box in perfect condition but the contents damaged. While certainly possible, it just seems odd. And I think odd too with this PSU where the PCB is...

I agree. Rosewill has had a steep hill to climb to overcome past history and for the most part, they've done real well with that in recent years.

The broken PCB does concern me. Was it dropped...

Right! A warranty replacement is totally different and you should get an exact replacement, or one of equal or greater "value" if the original is no longer in production.

After 3 years, I don't...

Don't forget about all your pain and suffering and lost productivity. IMO, you deserve total compensation but that is only part of it. They need to be punished. They feel now they can give consumers...

I think it too bad, and odd, you cannot RMA it though Seasonic. Typically here in the US, the store handles returns during the 1st year (sometimes just 30 days) then the manufacturer after that.

Well, under full load, 8 cores and 125W, that is not bad.

And the fan is supposed to respond quickly, but yeah, that noise would drive me crazy too. I would rather it stay constant. You might...

I am not a fan of liquid cooling. NO DOUBT, when properly setup, it works great and is very effective.
