Hxi750W fan


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


I finally bit the bullet and purchased a hxi750w power supply

I love it but I am having some issues with the fan.

I understand the fan only spins up when it needs too but i notice in corsair link the psu reaches up to 55 degrees celsius and the fan still sits at 0 rpm. If i try to manually set the fan to 100% it still does nothing. I also have noticed a strange odor from the psu since i installed it. I figure it might be that new car smell and will "burn" off after time. right now at idle in my pc it is sitting at 48 celsius

The readings could possibly be wrong on the Corsair Link, have you physically touched the PSU? Does it feel really hot?


-Is your fan turning on when you first do a cold boot?


it does feel hot when i touch it. the fan spins when i use the test button.


Updating link to the most recent update (may 11) seemed to have fixed the issue. i have set the psu fan to be on at 50% and now my temps are around 30 degrees cel when set to default. temps rise to high 40s fairly fast and the fans do not kick on
