Hi,

Just some time ago I bought new Corsair HX1000i (2022) psu. It seems to work well but ,,clicks" every time some load is applied to it, for example; starting FurMark, ATItool or some other stress test. This does not seem to happen when I undervolt my Asus Noctua RTX 3070 gpu. I thought that perhaps switching between multi-rail to single-rail this behaviour would stop but no.

Is this something that newer (digital) psu*s do or could be it some malfunction with the unit ?

(My current HX850 unit does not click regardless the oc or voltage of either GPU/CPU)

Thanks!

Clicks. Hm no it shouldn't do that. The PSU only clicks once it starts, because the bypass relay cuts off the circuit the NTC thermistor.

Ok, understood. So its most likely faulty unit or perhaps my gpu malfunctions and causes psu to activate some protection ?

Although I dont get bsods and gpu seems to work well otherwise...

@coool Well its definitely coming from psu, not sure where exactly. What is wierd tho is that when I reset my gpu*s clock-speed and voltage, it clicks. With slight undervoltage and lower mhz, there is no such thing.
