A lot of the Seasonic units, including Corsair's AX860, do have some whining issues when in standby. Ever since the +5VSB circuit was upgraded to comply with ErP 2013 requirements, the X cap, PFC cap and +5VSB transformer has been known to make whining noises.
Well here are the links to the reviews for the PSUs (I used exploding for lack of a better way to convey what the reviews were describing simply)

AX860i: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139041

Either died first run, or 5 months later

AX860: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139044

SO why dont other PSUs have the whining noise?
