Strange I never had problems with them. Grey_Beard helped me out though back when he was around.

Grey_Beard is the very meaning of epic though, I've never had that high level of customer service before, When he left Corsair CS quality sadly went down.

Well I'm now on my 3rd 1000 watt RMi PSU and the slight cricket like buzzing remains, I've tried it in several PC's and the outcome is the same every time.

Friends Seasonic is silent as the grave.

Has Corsair quality control just gone down the toilet ?

It could be your property. My old house was terrible for interference.

Shouldn't his UPS help protect him against this?

IDK tbh. It may even be the ups if he hadn't tried removing it.

Yeah I've tried plugging it directly into the mains, Various surge protectors, A UPS, Nothing helps, A Corsair employee on the Corsair forums said it was the way the PSU steps the power down from the UK's 230v into a usable voltage but I've tested a Seasonic PSU and it was silent at the same loads.

Its a shame Corsair stoped useing Seasonic as there maker...maybe just get a seasonic and sell it.

IMO they didnt stop. Seasonic still makes Corsairs AX series of PSUs but for some reason Corsair highly favour CWT as their main OEM for most of their PSUs. Ive replaced a fair few CWT made corsair units in the past so i find their reliability in general abit of a dice roll. A lot of people have a lot of success with them but at the same time not.

Ive gone ahead and checked the PSU database and it does seem like all the AX units apart from the AX760 and AX860 have been discontinued.

The AX1200 doesnt count as that is made by flextronics - Flextronics do all corsair's AXi stuff.

I am not surprised that thay are discontinued since the AX range is from 2013.
