Hello All!
Recently got a G5 750W PSU and have been experiencing heavy coil whine and a gurgle coming from my hard drive. I previously didn't experience this with my previous EVGA PSU (650w g+), and was wondering if anyone else in the forums have this issue as well?
I've RMA'd this PSU previously, and now the replacement PSU is exhibiting the same issues. 
 
Might just bite the bullet on the 15% restocking fee and go with a different brand.

    Even though the cables are compatible between those two PSUs, use the cables that came with the 750 G5..You could try using the cables from the 650 G+ and see if it matters..Other than that, hmmm.

    You can always Contact EVGA (call or email) about it.

    I had the same issue with my G5 750 watt. First one coil whined like crazy on a 1070 and 2070s, RMA'd one was DOA. Switched to a Seasonic GX-750 and never looked back silent as can be.
