HX850i PSU Temp question


Recommended Posts

I recently install my hx850i in my new phanteks evolv glass case and I noticed that the psu temp seems to be higher then when I had it in my Corsair 500r.


corsair link reads my psu temp at roughly 40C while on my desktop (30C when i first start my computer). Then hits roughly 49-50C when im gaming and then I notice the fans start to kick in at roughly 500rpm to bring the temp back down to 34C....my room temperature is only 26C


Strange thing is when I had it in 500r the fan hardly ever kicked and it stayed at around 35-40C even while gaming.


Could it be this case is somehow causing these high temps? or do I need an RMA on the PSU?
