    Any-one experienced this on the above PSU. I've recently had to upgrade from my AX860 so this is the only part I have changed and I notice coil whine while gaming. It's not the end of the world as my 3090fe and AIO get quite loud anyway, but should it really be doing this?
    A quick google search lights up the internet with people asking the same question.

    Never noticed this on mine with quite heavy usage - lots of NVME, 1070 GTX, Threadripper 1950X.

    Though that 3090 probably draws more than my CPU and GPU combined!

    Yeah I've seen it pull just under 500w in HWmonitor with 120% power and 120 core, it certainly get hungry.
