So recently while gaming with my 3080 Ti FTW3 Ultra on Z490 Dark, I've noticed that when for instance I'll pause during a game, talt-tab out, then after a short period of time the PSU will bring to emit a low level "buzzing-like sound" (verified source, reproducible) but upon reentering the game it seems to disipate, is this normal behavior with these newer units? Also, while alt-tabbed, I've checked with EliteX and the 12v rail readings fluctuate from the low 11.9s upwards to low 12.4s which to me seem a tad rangy.

    Could be coil whine from the psu which isn’t anything to worry about. Those 12v readings are ok too, but the 12v should be a solid number, and shouldn’t be swinging that much.

    Wait how could the 12v readings be "OK" yet not ok? Did I miss something? @governator did you figure out what is going on? Not many if any reviews on these newer units & im thinking about upgrading.
    I was considering this 1300 P+ too.

    The 12v has a range that it's suppose to operate in... 11.4 to 12.6 is that range, so he is good there, but the swing from 12.4 to 11.9 isn't right. It should be more steady. Like holding 12.4.

    dang there is def something up with these p+ 1300w psu.  I have rma'd one and got the second one and it still has a crazy buzzing sound.  I dont think it is coil whine honestly it sounds more like arcing to me.

    Mine is also buzzing under load. Relatively loud. Also running a 3090 FTW3 Ultra. Started recently, tried different settings in FS2020 and can change the pitch a little, but can’t get rid of it. What is our fix/remedy?

    Figured I'd post here, been documenting my saga with this model here: (Too new to link, thread was called "New coil whine on old 3090 Kingpin on new PSU")

    I'm on my third unit and still have this noise.  Third unit took some time to start making the noise, but it's there.  My system just completely turned off while I was in the middle of a game.  My 850 GA can power the system fine (trying to add more headroom with the 1300 watts).

    When I run the occt power supply test my system immediately turns off.  I guess I'll RMA again and try a fourth unit... eesh.

    I have a 3080ti and a 5950x.  Occt reports about 520 watts of power, WELL within the operating budget of this power supply.

    They're having me do another RMA and suggested swapping out all the power cables in the system when I get the new in box unit.

    honestly why on earth would they suggest that, are you using any custom 3rd party cording?

    So to update, the ranges are more in the range from 11.96x to 12.2xx but mostly in low 12sbwith an occasional spike but it's not often. I'm still on this unit, it still has low level whine with occasional higher but only after an extended gaming session. I'm still on this unit and by all other accounts it's been pretty solid.

    I contacted customer support about my 1300 Platinum buzzing/whining and was asked to supply a video where they could hear it. Unfortunately you can’t hear it easily in the recording thanks to the fan noise when the case is open and it just doesn’t seem to get picked up well by my phone’s microphone when the case is closed. It seems to be a mix of high frequencies switching at lower frequencies. Hard to describe but you sure know it when you hear it. Haven’t bothered to upload it since it’s not the kind of evidence that would get me resolution. 
     
    I’ve tried ear cushion adapters to try to keep the noise out while I’m in VR but they only block some of the noise. I’m really getting sick of the noise from this supply but after seeing others report their RMA replacements do the same thing, I think I’m just going to can this supply and buy a different model. As of today I’m two weeks out of 90 day step up but there is no step up is available for power supplies anyway. It’s unfortunate. I paid extra to try to get a solid and quiet power supply only to land square in a buzzing mess. 
     
    It’s load related. It’s totally quiet when just doing things in Windows but fire up FS2020 and it starts whining/buzzing/high frequency clicking. My dog also hates the sound and won’t stay in the room when it is doing it. I’ve long seen other people complain about buzzing/whining power supplies and video cards but didn’t fully appreciate how annoying it is until I experienced it myself. It is definitely annoying.
     
    You would think designers would make sure to keep switching frequencies out of audible range but apparently not. My 1300 is running an 11900 and 3090 FTW3 Ultra, 32GB of 4GHz RAM. I wanted the extra headroom for smoother power to MB/video/RAM while building a new system. Very disappointed with the 1300 P+.

    Good post, and unless EVGA chimes in here with something concrete and not dance around the issue I'm willing to bet that this is precisely why the 1600+ isn't to market at this time.
     
    Here's a decent discussion below on the issue:

    Here’s another good discussion of coil whine: https://clevercreations.org/what-is-coil-whine-how-to-fix/
     
    FS2020 recently updated the code to more fully load CPU/GPU and my whine started shortly after that. Totally fits with the discussion that probably the higher load exposed the scratching/whining noise. There is another update coming in just a few days that may or may not change the loading again which may or may not change the noise situation. If it doesn’t change anything I may look at gooping the inductors myself to see if that changes things.
     
    One of the features of this supply is how quiet it’s supposed to run. To me, coil whine is unacceptable. Looking back at the product page, all references to quiet seem to be just the fan, though.
     
    And to be fair, the onus is on me to get the video they want. First attempt doesn’t show the whine that well but it’s definitely there and definitely annoying.
     
    Update - I had hoped that the SU7 update would change the load to stop the buzzing but it didn’t. Still had the buzzing. There is a material called Q-Dope used to stabilize transformer windings and I decided to give it a gamble even though applying it to the coils was a hard warranty void. With multiple reports of RMA units also buzzing, I didn’t want to keep messing with it anyway. Again, to be fair, I have no idea what EVGA would have offered had I gone that route. I didn’t ask. The Q-Dope quieted the supply down somewhat but the buzzing was still there and still really annoying. It wasn’t the cure I was hoping for. Today I replaced the supply with a different brand and model and the buzzing is gone.

    Just bought this unit for the first time in september and it only took a month of moderate gaming to begin this buzzing. I just received my first RMA last week, and the buzzing was present on the very first gaming session. This is so upsetting. I really just want a refund and ill continue running my 850 B5 as bad as that sounds. I hope to God I dont have to get ran through the ringer of multiple RMAs with this defective product.

    Pretty frustrating. I sold my evga 1000 watt plat to a friend to get this 1300 P+ and now the buzzing sound. I am thinking about calling support, but honestly, I just don't want to deal with the hassle of it all. I've owned a handful of EVGA PSU's and never had this noise. It doesn't seem like they have any other models that would be better. 
    If you look at all the retailers that sell this psu the comments are all "extreme coil whine" and "buzzing" sound. hopefully EVGA will address this issue.

    had no issue with 5900x and 3080ti with g3 750w, but it shut off when trying to oc 3080ti w/ precision x1
    so I bought 1300P+ around sep (cost abuot 360) to swap out EVGA g3 750w, but returned it after week becasue of the coil whine.
    still shopping for PSU upgrade and recently see the price drop to 280 
    decided to check the review on this PSU  
    seeing people still complain about it ...
    glad I ate the 60 bux shipping, just return that instead of swapping when I read the OEM is not either super flower or Seasonic
     
    I dont know if it help, but dont even use eco mode,
    it kinda helped my situation, didn't last long though.
    but at least that's something that you can try if you can no longer return it.

    Re: EVGA 1300 P+ "buzzing" sound during loads 2021/12/29 10:39:00 (permalink)
    Wanted to add onto this thread. The first 1300 P+ I received had some insane coil whine, like make you deaf coil whine. I'm on my 2nd one after RMA and the buzzing was non-existent at first, but now it's starting to rear its ugly head after a couple weeks use, although it is fairly quiet compared to the first one.
     
    Think this'll be the last EVGA PSU I buy. Might RMA, but I'm hoping it'll go away or something.

    Figured I'd post here, been documenting my saga with this model here: (Too new to link, thread was called "New coil whine on old 3090 Kingpin on new PSU")

    I'm on my third unit and still have this noise.  Third unit took some time to start making the noise, but it's there.  My system just completely turned off while I was in the middle of a game.  My 850 GA can power the system fine (trying to add more headroom with the 1300 watts).


    Funnily enough, that thread was originally my thread.  The new P+ 1300 unit is now buzzing as well. These things are just bunk. I've reached out to EVGA to either RMA or get a different PSU altogether.

    Unfortunately I've run into the same issue, it's fine with the GPUs mining when I'm not playing games.. but the second I load up a game the coil whine is so bad it sounds like something is stuck in a fan on a 1300 P+. I'm about to return this thing to Amazon and go back to running two old power supplies until I get something decent. Just sucks that I bought two PerFE cables, but I guess those can go back to Amazon as well.

    I have the 1300 p+ as well and the coil whine is by far worse than any other coil whine I've ever heard. It sounds like a high voltage breaker box under load. 
    Here's a video with the pc at idle and then listen for the coil whine shift as I turn on Halo Infinite. Lets see if you notice it lol.
    Edit: can't share links on here any idea how I can upload a video?

    Just got the 1300 p+ from Amazon. Same issue as people here are having. A very loud and audible buzzing noise coming from the PSU when load is applied. 
    I am going to reseat all of the power connections. Then I am going to try again. If I still hear the buzz, I am returning it to Amazon and getting something else (Seasonic also makes a 1300W Plat PSU). Feels like a $250+ PSU should not have these issues. How much do I need to pay for the non buzzing version? 
     
    Update:
    I did the Reseat of all the power connectors into the PSU and into the components (Motherboard/GPU/Hard drive) and still a very loud buzz comes directly from the PSU when at load.
    I will be returning this ASAP. Here is a video I made of the Buzz.

    Absolutely return that thing. If you try to RMA you're going to be out on shipping and without a PSU for a week at least. Not worth it. I'm dealing with the same noise issue on a supernova and it's been over a day waiting just to open a ticket so I can start the RMA.

    Yup, have a 1300 p+ as well and immediately pulled it out of the system because of the could whine from it. I just have it as a bench PSU now when something needs testing.
