About 2 weeks ago I received my new Aurora R6 with the following specs:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz
16GB DDR4 2400MHz
128GB M.2 SATA SSD (Boot) + 2T B 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s (Storage)
NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GTX 1080 TI with 11GB GDDR5X
850W PSU Liquid Cooled Chassis
As I was busy after it arrived I did not do much on it for the first week but once I had the opportunity to do some gaming I noticed a distinct buzzing sound coming from the case. This was mostly only evident when pushing the system a bit playing games such as Mass Effect Andromeda, Wildlands etc. After troubleshooting a bit I found that the buzzing decreased if I toned down the graphics options. Immediately I assumed this must be from the graphics card but further diagnosis indicated the sounds was coming from the PSU. I had a DELL tech come out and replace the PSU but the buzzing sound is still present. It is without a doubt, coming from the PSU even after being replaced.
I am now waiting on a new system being sent as DELL wanted me to send this unit to a repair facility but, even given the sound, I cannot be without a system for at minimum a week.
Although I will be getting a replacement system I am interested to hear if others have had a similar experience. The buzzing sound is definitely coming from the PSU (and the second PSU) BUT there must be a different component causing this. Thoughts?
