It's likely just a coil/inductor inside the power strip (for the protection circuit) making the noise. Nothing to worry about. They always vibrate, though not always at an audible frequency :)

You...

I remember when Enermax PSUs got more than a simple 'meh' :)

This particular PSU isn't bad. It's just not great. And expensive. For that price I'll get a Seasonic PSU instead with much better...

I'm also really interested in Cintiq alternatives, if only because Wacom is so incredibly expensive. Most of the disadvantages I saw involved lower resolution of the display, laggy response, inferior...

Yeah, I do have a desoldering gun. That one still relies on applying sufficient heat to the solder, of course, which is what I am having trouble with at this point.

What's a solder pot?

How to desolder big PSU heatsinks?

I recently got my grubby paws on yet another one of those ATX v1.3 units being branded as a 'modern' ATX PSU (i.e. suitable for a 12V-focused load). Naturally its 12V switchers were burned through...

Are APC UPSes just no longer worth it?

My first good UPS I bought years ago was an MGE one, which worked perfectly year after year and still works aside from bad batteries. I replaced it with an APC BackUPS CS 650 VA which died after a...

I love those retro PSUs... Great for old pre-P4 systems, not so great for modern systems :)

Welcome back :)

How about replacing the Fuhyyus with fresh caps? It's not so difficult to replace those primary and secondary caps. Just takes a regular soldering iron and basic soldering skills :)

The VS450 in particular looks very cheap.. I don't think I'd want either in any of my systems :)

How much power would the US save if they switched to 230VAC?

It's a common fact that SMPSes get more efficient at higher input voltages, usually by a few percent. What I was wondering about is what the power savings are a country like the US could expect if...

I don't think I'll buy this unit if there's a chance it'll short out thanks to such fancy soldering work... Heck, it makes Enermax's past 'touch-ups' look reasonable and sane :)
