    Hello,
    I just remarked today that the power supply of my 360 is making noise. I don't know why it does that ... I think it's the fan or the motor of the fan. When I move the power supply the noise is changing a little bit [​IMG] I'm I the only one with this problem? I hope my power supply not gonna explode [​IMG]

    Probably the supply's fan got a bit moved on its rotation axis, and now it's making noise because it tingles against something that it shouldn't reach normally.

    The only way to repair it would be to open the supply. Or send it back to MS [​IMG]

    In the long term, the fan might even broke (as tingling against something creates stress on the fan's motor), and thus your power supply would go BOOM without the needed cooling [​IMG]

    How loud is the noise? Almost every power supply I have for anything that takes up >50W of energy makes noise.
