Lol, whatta drag. Is there anyway around this other than buying a new psu? I doubt corsair would accept it as an rma
All respectable HX750 tests have shown that it is well within spec on ripple. Not to say that it can be defective and decide to start killing things (ask AkG, 3 dead ssd's because of one bad PSU). I would, if possible either take the drive out and see if it still makes the sound, or try the PSU in another rig. See where the problem follows.
