  1. Hello. How do you have the PCIe cables going from the PSU to the 2x 2080 Ti's? You should have four separate cables, each with two connectors on them. If you were to use only one connector from each cable, rather than two, does the problem change?
  2. That's a REALLY OLD PSU. Are you sure you want to use it? But as stated earlier: When you have THREE 8-pin connectors, you can use one pig tail on two of those connectors. The GPU doesn't consume THAT MUCH power.
  3. No motherboard "requires" two 8-pin EPS12V connectors unless you're overclocking with LN2. And since you're using a 10 year old PSU, I don't think you're overclocking with LN2. 😉
  4. 50°C is the ambient operating temperature. And you just explained why it ran cooler in the old case. In the old case, it was fan up, so heat would rise away from the PSU's PCB. Even though cases tend to have shrouds these days, I never buy one without ventilation. And... I run the PSU with the fan pointing up. Fan down creates two phenomena that's I'm not easy with. 1. heat rising into the PCB. and 2. lack of air flow. You have filters that fill with dust and then there's no air intake.
  5. Does it only do it on a cold boot? In other words, if you shut down from within Windows, don't turn off the PSU from the switch on the back, and then turn it back on with the case power button, does it still do this?
  6. That's not the PSU if we're talking about you pushing the button on the front of the case. The two pins on the power button go to the motherboard and then the motherboard tells the PSU to turn on. For some reason, the motherboard is not holding onto that power on signal. Maybe try updating your BIOS? Could be a known issue with whatever motherboard you're using.
  7. How is the PSU's position, ventilation, etc. different in the 1000D vs. the "old case". What was the "old case"?
  8. Actually, there are some cheap ones out there that only do high line voltage. As I said in my previous post:
  9. Weird. So what are you doing, exactly? Running on UPS power and turning the PSU on or is the PC already on and you unplugged the UPS from the wall?
  10. You shouldn't be hearing it from 2 meters away, that's for sure. Might be defective.
  11. Nah. An RMx should work fine with a cheaper standby UPS. Have you tried the "pull the plug while something is on the UPS" test with any other hardware, or just the PC?
  12. There are GPUs that require 3 PCIe connectors. Not need 3 PCIe cables. The newest RMx has six PCIe connectors. The reason for the three EPS12V is because Nvidia originally stated that they would be adapting 2x EPS12V to 12-pin for the Ampere FE cards. Then, at the last minute, changed that to 2x PCIe to 12-pin. By then it was too late to change the RMx cable configuration. If ever you need different/additional cables, simply contact Corsair tech support and request a cable.
  13. I see some EU and UK product in Corsair's Almere warehouse. Now when/if any of that inventory end up at Alternate, I can't say. :(:
  14. For some reason, I'm only seeing inventory in Europe. :dunno:
  15. If you're sure the problem is just one of the SATA/PATA cables, why return the whole thing? Just contact Corsair support, tell them you have a bad cable and ask them to send you a new one.
  16. Ok.. So the PSU is in it's own chamber. I'm just saying, if your fans are powered by your motherboard, they're powered by your motherboard. Doesn't make sense that the fan speed behavior would change with different power supplies.
  17. What fans are you using? Do you have pictures of how they're plugged in? Again: The PATA/SATA connectors on the PSU are ALWAYS ON. So they're gong to start spinning any fans plugged directly into them as soon as you power on. I think there's something between the PSU and the fan that you're forgetting to tell us.
  18. Ok. So one fan is plugged into the PATA cable that came with the RM1000x and it doesn't spin either? The PATA/SATA ports are "always on" and always delivering +12V. So if you have a fan plugged directly into the PSU, it should not only be spinning, but spinning full speed. Are you SURE you have one fan plugged directly into the PSU and you're DEFINITELY using a cable that came with the RM1000x?
  19. Are you sure the fans aren't spinning faster simply because the interior of the PC is hotter? What case are you using?
  20. If a PSU, like your HXi, is rated at 50°C, that means it can output full power at ambient temperatures upwards of 50°C. If a PSU, like the CV, is rated at 30°C, that means that it can only do full power at 30°C. If temperatures exceed that, you can only output a fraction of the power as temperature increase until eventually over temperature protection trips the PSU off. This is called a "de-rating curve".
  21. What fans? What fan controller? How are they hooked up?
  22. It's an RM1000i.... so you're using this with iCUE? Your PSU doesn't control your fans unless they're plugged DIRECTLY into the PSU. In which case, they would get +12V at all times and spin at full speed. So there's got to be more to this than "one PSU makes my fans spin at full speed while another does not."
