What is going on and is this a common thing?
I have the seasonic g series 550w psu and I've noticed that during certain games, the psu will get quite loud. To put it in comparison, it's louder than my cryorig r1 cooler with stock fans at 100% and it's louder than the evga 1080 ftw cooler also at 100%. Not a big fan of this cause I'm trying to get a silent build, and besides this psu, my pc is near silent under load.
So far, rainbow six seige and black ops 3 ramps up my psu. I haven't gamed much lately so not sure what else can. I do recall that borderlands did not ramp up the psu.
If this is just an issue with my psu model in general or something, any psu recommendations that are silent under load?
