    Default Corsair rm750x or SeaSonic FPG 750/850

    Hi!
    Recently I built new rig:
    - 8700k
    - 2x8gb RAM
    - gtx 1080
    - SSD 860 evo 256gb
    - 2 HDD 7200
    - dark rock pro 4
    - Fractal Meshify C
    - 2 140mm fans and 3 120mm
    I'm planing to oveclockCPU in region 4.7Ghz. Main Usage - video|photo editing and gaming.
    Right now I installed my old Corsair CMPSU-850HX 850W (2009) but it making some screeching noise at start (maybe old fan bearings?). Can I change fan by myself? Or should I buy new PSU? If I should - what is best overall and noise wise - Corsair rm750x(115$) or SeaSonic FPG 750(120$)/850(134$)?

    At the same price, RMx for sure, it is quieter and there’s no chance of it having issues with some GPUs
    Just some nerd from 'Straya

    random reboots or shutdowns due to the peaks the GPU Causes...

    So Seasonic a no go?
    I also read about RMx that old models are prone to noise and new 2018 model costs around 130$ in my country=/

    Easy to check; hold the blades still when starting up.

    Changing the fan may be an option.

    And black screens/artifacs or freezes because of high ripple from the PSU.

    That is completely false.

    FPG also has no 12v ocp and has a very aggressive fan profile...
