Wish the pictures were bigger/better so you could actually get a good look inside.

Keep in mind that the 23rd is a Friday, and most RMA shops don't work weekends (at least in the US.)
So they most likely have only had two days to look at your unit and test it so far, as it's only...

Sounds like you need to send your motherboard in as there was a fault in either the components or wiring of the build-in sound chip. A long trace could have touched the case and shorted out but...

While I don't think you should apologize for it, I don't think a 30C has a place in this market anymore. When you look at the budget lines from other companies, they still uphold that 40C standard....

It all looks to be pretty new. Even the daughter cards for the DC-DC modules of the secondary side look to be smaller than previous Enhance units.

Obviously a more thorough disassembly will help,...

I gotta say that this is a pretty poor showing all things considered.

Right now you can pick up the EVGA Bronze 750w B2 Rev for cheaper, before & after rebate. Same story for Antec's True Power...

The MSRP is roughly the same between all of them. Which means the margins on the XFX & Cooler Master units are either really low, or Corsair just likes sitting at a flat percentage on their units...

I've found more questionable designs in the past when it comes to "silent" fans, but I tend to find the less elaborate designs to be more quiet.

Besides some slight bearing noise, and a pitch...

Load tables & cables don't really line up with anything Andyson has right now.

Might be Huizhou Xin Hui Yuan Tech, who did their revision 3 Redwing units in the past.

It seemingly strikes me as odd that they went with an off the shelf FDB fan. Don't get me wrong, it's a fine enough product. On the other hand, when you're competing in a market where anything and...

Inrush current isn't delivered to your system, that's all handled by the primary side of the PSU, not the secondary side.

Haven't had to repair one yet.

I would assume McSteel's suggestion of graphite powder to be the best answer, at least based on my experience with the bearing.
It's definitely an oilless bearing...

It's a sleeve bearing, and looks to be a straight up copy of the NZXT FN140RB's , which are a pretty "generic" design like Yate Loons.
They should be just fine as long as the bearing is properly...
