So I bought a 600w Corsair GS PSU and when playing Skyrim flat out, it makes a loud whine noise?

Apprently this either means its faulty or can't handle the power?

Specs:

GTX 670

I5 3570k

8GB RAM

Can anyone reccomend me a good PSU for this? It says online reccomend 502w PSU for my build??

What's your budget? And though Corsair is usually a reputable brand, their cheaper GS series PSU's are noticeably lower quality than their other offerings.

750 or 800 watt to be more then enough and future proof.

800w waste of money.

RMA? Could be just a faulty fan.

Agreed. That being said 600W should be enough for what you have (assuming there isn't a whole lot else, i.e.: fans, hard drives, etc. running as well).

I looked up the GS600, and it's not stellar, but it should be ok for what you have. You may want to pursue an RMA if you have the option. My thoughts are it may be faulty...

Edit: spelling...
