replicator Posted December 7, 2021 Share Posted December 7, 2021 Well it took its sweet time but my build is done (PETG TUBING A PAIN). Had loads of issues with the 14mm xspc tubing and their fittings, went through dozens of o rings as the tolerance's were poor. Mystic fog im not too sure, it has left tiny bubbles on the inside of the res and i can not get them out or put something in the fill port on the ek res to try and wipe the inside front (any ideas) might just flush and use cryofuel clear. Anyway the issue i seem to have is that at least 1-2 times a day the fans seem to loose there rgb colour, sometimes 1 or 2 fans or today the entire top rad fans both sides were flickering wildly. Contacted Corsair and they seem to think its down to the 5v rail or rail in my AX1200i supply (6y old) trying to power all the rgb 21 LL fans EK res Ek cpu block Corsair ram Corsair xg7 gpu block Plus the 2 x 10 pwm hubs 4 X Corsair rgb hubs 2 x com pros Corsair 1000D chassis lights Everything uses the sata connection ( i tried to spread them out on the p/supply ) Any ideas ? The other issue is that if i run a game or say Valley benchmark then i get noise from the rear where my power supply is (AX1200i) coil whine/noise that goes when i exit the game or benchmark. This has never happened in the 6 years of owning the ax1200i. Plus it is all new gear Amd 5900x rig. Corsair says i need their 5v balancer as it lets me use a 12v rail to spread the current but it is not out yet anywhere i have tried to locate one in the Uk but no joy, probably covid slowing down production for release. Do you guys think its a power supply issue/fault or do i need the balancer or new power supply with stronger 5v rails any suggestions please. Other than that i think it went together really well, will probably change a couple of pieces of tubing another way when i change to acrylic in 6-9 months or so. Any help on the issues above would be helpful. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
