My System Specs

Default Need a good PSU with no whine/stupid noises

I am already sick of PSU's that keep coil whining or fan clicking or who knows what else

I have a TX850M and does exactly this

I received an RMA and this one coil whines like crazy. I would also like a brand that has an RMA center in Canada so I don't have to spend 50$ just to RMA a PSU

I just want to have a quiet computer and just only hear the spinning fans of my case/GPU/CPU

Can anyone recommend a good PSU brand that has no coil whine or other stupid features that can only introduce grief like the corsairs zero fan

Any feedback on Antec?

Seasonic X

My Seasonic X850 is silent. Fan on power supply spins infrequently if at all in my build when heat builds up to much it might,

way over spec only drawing 350 W from the wall.

Don't know where RMA center is I doubt I will need it.

XFX 750 is a Seasonic in disguise usually cheaper.

TX850M has a poor fan PWM design, that's the noise it making not coil whine

I just went from a Corsair HX620 to an Antec HCG-620 (re-badged Seasonic) and all my coil whining and squealing disappeared.
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
