I have had one or 2 out of 10 do it, and it was only noticable from about 6-12" away max. If you need dead silence, you would probably go for something else, but I love these little babies. I have an i5 2500k, gtx 650, 8gb ram and overclocking the i5 to 4.5ghz and not even close to pushing it. Probably 250w max. This thing works well for those on a budget using a newer single card system.
Oh, and the one that did whine, the guy never noticed it ha ha. I am sure if I said something he would have complained, but for the money it is hard to beat. Been this price all weekend, which is nice.
hehe are these the ones where 1/2 of them make the high pitched noise? its a gamble with these.
I think I've had maybe 3 of these (and have the older 400w model in my main system, though I don't think that one what ever fingered for that issue) and haven't had any issues. Seems every few months somebody brings me a computer with a blown power supply so I'll give them my spare CX430 and order another.
Here's to hoping number four is as solid as the first three...
