New Xbox 360 Elite Power supply noise on stand-by


    I just purchased a Xbox 360 Elite on Friday and have noticed a audible noise from the power supply on stand-by like a high pitched whine. I did some research on google and apparantly others have had the same issue.

    Microsofts answer is that its the fans still working in the psu, but my previous Elite was quiet on stand-by.

    Does anyone have any views or experience on the matter?.



    Xbox 360 are generally noisy beasts (try and record the sound an post on youtube so we can compare)

    Well the unit has a Benq drive and seems as normal as any other 360's I have seen or owned the issue is just with the psu on stand-by. I am sure its a Falcon unit with a 175w PSU.

    how loud is it?
    my laptop does this but i can only hear it if i put it right up close to an ear
