    Unhappy Corsair Vengeance 550M Coil Whine

    Hello,

    Based on jonnyguru review I purchased this PSU from Amazon.de but I guess it has coil whine issue.

    Coil whine started 5-6 hours after building my brand new PC. I wonder if this is because it is new or coil whine is a permanent issue? It would be hard to send it back to Germany from Turkey.

    Here is a video that I uploaded about Corsair Vengeance 550M PSU coil whine (coil whine noise changes as I move in a game's menu. It isn't making any noise while playing. It sometimes makes a noise during idle. Also I'm positive it isn't GPU.):

    Coil whine is permanent but bound to the specific parts used: if you change mobo/cpu/gpu you may have whining changes as well (in an unpredictable manner, from disappearing to worsening).

    Vengeance is usually not prone to coil whine. I'd try to return it and check out annother one of the same model. Most likely it's just a single bad unit.

    This.

    BTW, to the OP: if the seller were Amazon EU, they will likely pay the cross shipping (albeit perhaps you have to bring forward the return charge) . OTOH, if it were from Marketplace, likely no.

    Does't have Corsair local support in Turkey? Usually they also accept invoices from shops in foreign countries as proof of purchase.

    We have Turkish staff, Turkish distributors, Turkish retailers, yes.

    Perhaps it was bought from Germany because the final price was cheaper than through a Turkish one? But now, that's not looking to be such a great value proposition.

    Thank you for responses. Yes I could buy another model from Turkey but even VS550 has 2x more price than Vengeance.

    VS550= 100eur in Turkey
    Vengeance 550M= 50eur from Germany including shipping.

    I will send a mail to Turkish distributor thank you for suggestions. But I don't think they will change it because they don't even sell it in Turkey.

    I guess I will wait for a while and if it doesn't dissappear I will contact with Amazon.

    Thanks again.

    Shit happens.
    Just RMA it and if it hapens again you have to try a different unit.

    Shit like this happens sometimes, can't do nothing about it...

    And if something doesn't work that well, when you're lucky, you'll get coil whine, if not something like sporadic reboots and shit like that...

    True. They don't have the SKU in Turkey. So they would then send it to Corsair Taiwan for replacement and the turn around time will be quite long (like two or three weeks?).

    Can't they replace it for CX-M? It's not as good as Vengeance but still betetr than a noisy Vengeance.
