Omen 30L PSU Fan Clicking

By lancetb ·
I bought an Omen 30L a few weeks ago and the fan in the Cooler Master Bronze 500 PSU makes an annoying clicking noise when it turns on/off (sometimes it turns on/off constantly). Is there a way to make the fan run continuously to stop the clicking? If not, can the fan in the PSU be replaced, or would it just be better to get a different PSU? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My son has that model and yes the fan is set/designed to be on demand. It's hardly noticeable here but yes, if there was a very quiet room it could make some noise and my view is it's not defective.

You would replace the power supply to change the behavior.

Some PCs have options for this area.

But my two son's Omens seem to do this and it's not noticeable unless I have the desktop up close. Once we moved them to the floor the sound is lost among all the other noises.

Again, I didn't see any option in the BIOS but have seen PSUs that allow some fan configuration and control.

Make it a warranty issue.
See what they have to say.
