VX450W... many similar issues?


Recommended Posts

Hi friends. Greetings from Spain (my apologizes for my bad english). I bought a Corsair VX450w three months ago and I'm having a lot of issues... Randomly, my computer doesn't power up, turn on for a few seconds, but shutdown again, the same problems reported in these posts:






(this last exactly the same mobo)


Too, once when i'm surfing and I clicked a link, the computer shutdowns inmediatly... and i don't know the reason (my system is new, Windows XP installed two minuts ago):


First, i tested my PSU with a Asus A8N-E, AMD X2-3800 and 2x512 Trascend RAM, and i changed three components, and i bought a Gigabyte P35 DS3L, 2x1gb Adata Vitesta Extreme and Intel Core 2 Duo e4500. In both systems I have the same issue, and I would like to know is really have a compatibility issue or is a coincidence. I've seen many posts about this question and i'm not sure about the convenience to replace Corsair for another PSU brand.

Thank you very much.

Well, my second review about my RMA'd VX450w. After a week in use, i don't have problems of power up or shutdowns. That's ok :o:

About the noise, is a mixed bag. Electrical noise (buzzing) is a bit high, although the fan is really quiet, and i don't have any complaint about this... until this morning that the fan has started doing a clic-clic-clic.... I've tried stop the fan with a pencil, and this sound has stopped, and when the fan began to spin again, the noise dissapeared. I'll take a look it for some days to see if the noise returns. Perhaps i have the same issue than another people and loosening screews of the fan i'll solve this matter, you don't?
