    Default Inverter Buzzing

    Hey guys,

    Is *inverter buzzing* something that comes with the territory? or is it a sign of undesireable things to come?

    Thanks,

    Sphere

    It's just a sign of inconsistant quality control.

    But nothing is going to happen outside of the deterioration of your sanity.

    What kind of inverter is it?

    Is it for 12VDC to 120VAC conversion?

    I'm thinking he's talking about winding buzz coming off of a transformer in a PSU.

    Yeah it should be the transformer buzzing. Unless it sounds as loud as flourescent lights....

    Thanks everyone,

    I emailed Thermaltake today about the issue, and the tech wrote, I quote That's the inverter buzz, it is a normal behavior

    Two minutes later I receive another email, informing me that If it's audible over conversation, I should RMA it

    Not to be a dick, but I just spent over $170.00 on this psu (my Antec true power 550 never had this issue for the 4 years I ran it prior to the TT model) so I don't personally care for the buzzing it makes everytime I load a webpage or update servers on any games. It's interesting, as the servers load, the buzzing staggers with it, same as loading web pages( that WILL drive one mad




    Grin and bare it? or is this a legit reason to RMA?

    Your thoughts appreciated,

    Thank you

    I would RMA it in a heart beat.
    The new TT ToughPowers reviewed well and there was NO comment on buzzing.
    Worth a good looking over. http://www.badcaps.net/

    Never heard that terminology used before in a PC power supply.

    It shouldn't buzz, that's for sure.

    Audible over conversation? LOL now that's a comparison!
