Would a seasonic X-1050 be silent ? I noticed that the Coil sound is louder the higher the PSU wattage is.. (I went from a Coolermaster Silent Pro 1000W) So I guess I wont be taking anything close to a 1200W for now.
The seasonic unit would operate in fanless mode when your system is idle, so the fan wouldn't be spinning at all.

You can look at different reviews of whatever PSU you're think about getting to see about the fan noise. If the PSU hasn't been reviewed here, I recommend checking out jonnyguru.

It's coil noise in this one, krazyups - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coil_Noise

OP - Crappy buzz man, a lot of high end PSUs get coil whine probably because the experienced engineers are old and cannot hear those high pitched sounds anymore. Allowing the PSUs to go into production. Need some young guys in QA I say.

Necro bump. Sorry.
My AX1200 is having the same issue.

It is NOT coil whine. It's the fan. There is a YouTube video on this. Google AX1200 fan replacement.

I am now looking for a replacement fan for this. Out of warranty so corsair can't help.

Don't need a new PSU as this AX1200 works fine. Just need to replace the fan.

I have a CX750 I've been meaning to replace the fan but I haven't found a 140 mm fan with the connector already on it that PSUs use.
