  1. Have AX1600i that has USB, but inside PSU has a weird connector and 2 x 4 pin ports (not sure if they're PMBus). Would like to hook it up to Asus WRX80 PSU_SMB 5pin port on MB Attached a is picture of teardown of AX1600i that shows the control board with ports in question. Besides corsair link / iCUE, does AX1600i support PMBus / PSU SMB?
  2. I built a dual 3090 system, and chose a Corsair AX1600i PSU. A few times every day my machine randomly shuts off. I tried replacing/ testing all components/ wires. nothing worked. I tried single rail, and multi rail for the PSU no change. I bought an EVGA Supernova T2 1600, and now my pc works fine. My problem is I dont think RMA-ing the Corsair PSU will work as it may not technically be broken. I think it just has a design flaw due to the rails and how much they can take before the PSU decides to auto shut off. I can still RMA it but if that does not fix it because it is a design issue, what do i do, just kiss $550 goodbye?
  3. Since yesterday, my PC won't turn on at all. No lights, no fans spinning, nothing. I used the "self-test" feature on the AX1600i and it works when I unplug the 24-pin connector (as it should) - green light shows up on the PSU - but leave all the other cables connected. However, when I connect the motherboard cable (24-pin), the PC doesn't turn on at all. On the motherboard itself (EVGA SR-3 Dark), I get an error code of "E2" when I hold down the "Reset" button for 4 seconds. I'm not sure how to diagnose the issue. Please help!
  4. I bought a brand new AX1600i and set it up two days ago. This morning, when I was just browsing/email (aka no load), the system just shut off. It wouldn't turn back on. I turned off the switch on the back of the PSU and then held down the power button on the PC for a few seconds. Then it turned back on and it booted right up. After about 10 minutes, again, it just shut off. I have the PSU connected to a dedicated 20A circuit so it most definitely is not that. I had an EVGA 1600T2 PSU in the system right before this and it worked flawlessly for the past 6 months. Since the system is shutting down when there is no load, what could the issue be? Also, I noticed in iCUE that the Multi-rail OCP is turned on and all the settings are at 40A (slider). Should the OCP be set to Single-Rail or Multi-Rail? Also, the Fan RPM is 0 - is there a way to set it so that it turns on automatically? I don't want any "eco" mode or some such thing - I want the PSU to be as cool as possible. I am using the CableMod cable-set for the AX1600i along with a couple of the stock/default cables since I'm using 2x GPUs in the system. The system has shut off without warning three (3x) times now when just idling/doing light work like browsing or checking email. Yesterday, I was playing games on it and monitored the Power-In and Power-Out and it was regularly reaching ~ 1470W - but it worked perfectly fine and there were no issues. When I shut the computer off last night, I turned the PSU switch to the "OFF" position (as I always do with all of my PCs) and turned it back on this morning when I wanted to use the computer. This is driving me insane so I would appreciate some help! Is the PSU dying already? It's been less than 3 days since I got it! Please help!
  5. I am about to buy an AX1600i, but there are a few things that worry me: Is there really no way to prevent the automatic (15 seconds long) fan self-test at startup? Is the fan still performing an obstruction test every few seconds, as was the case with the AX1200i? Does it remember user-defined fan curves during normal system restarts, if no Corsair software is running?
  6. I’ve got a weird problem. I just switched out a Hx1200i for an Ax1600i. I was worried I wasn’t getting enough power under full load (My highest measured usage was 1090 watts, and the processor wasn’t close to being maxed out). I used all the cables that came with the 1600. This has happened a couple times now. When the computer is shut down, the power supply cuts out all power, apparently at random. It doesn’t happen immediately but sometime during the night. In order to get the computer to power on I must disconnect the motherboard from the power supply and then run the self-test(which shows a green light under self) and then plug the motherboard back in to the power supply. Any ideas?
  7. I just got a new AX1600i and this isn't my first Corsair PSU with zero RPM fan feature, I had HX1000i and HX1200i in the past and I've gotten familiar with PSUs' "fan test" button and how Link software works, and configured PSU's fan in the past so I know how a properly working PSU behaves in term of fan test feature and its operation and configuration. Anyways, back to my new AX1600i... When I press the button and hold it, the fan spins at 100%. Once I let it go and press again, the fan won't start unless I unplug the PSU and wait a couple of minutes. On my older HXi PSUs the fan test button worked any time I pressed it and the fans were spinning at 40% or around so (inaudible, but spinning). Next, the fan configuration in Link is acting weird, whenever I change fan operation option, it randomly doesn't apply, I tried full speed, fixed speed, fan curve, the fan either stays at full speed unless I change to default or it doesn't change mode at all. With my older HXi PSUs, the fan changed mode immediately after hitting apply or OK. Is my AX1600i faulty or did the fan behavior logic change in the new model? Thanks.
  8. Yes, that title is correct. I've experienced TWO fried Gigabyte Aorus X399 Extreme motherboards using an AX1600i as the PSU. Each one failed after about six months of use. Both failed in the same manner and under minimal usage (at the time of failure). The same component failed on both boards - an electronic component near the AMD X399 chipset IC had a meltdown. I've now switched to an ASRock X399 (Fatal1ty) Professional Gaming MB. Hopefully this one doesn't fail in ~6 months. I'm unsure what type of electronic component fried (resistor?) but I've attached pictures. One of the reasons I chose the Gigabyte board over other X399 TR4 boards was that it has 2x4+4 CPU power connections as opposed to 1x4+4 and 1x4 CPU power connections and I wanted an MB that supported CPUs that may demand more power (like the 2990WX). I wonder now if the board's design is defective and doesn't follow AMD recommendations because it is the only one I found that offers more CPU power input. Anyway, if anyone has had a similar experience or any knowledge they can offer I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
  9. HI GUYS NICE TO BE HERE i am into my first serious build... Need advice on capacity of UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) My Build config. is as follows:- Power Supply -> Corsair AX1600i CPU ->Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor CPU Cooler -> Noctua NH-D15 Motherboard -> Asus PRIME Q370M-C/CSM Micro ATX Memory -> Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-2666 Storage -> Samsung 970 Pro 1 TB M.2-2280 SSD Video Card -> Asus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB ROG Strix Case -> Cooler Master MasterCase H500P Mesh ATX Mid Tower the build has a wattage of around 500Watts as of now. i will be building upon the system in the coming year. the system will be used for running Research SIMULATIONS.. the insurge current for corsair Ax1600i is about 21.03Amps refer below link https://www.techpowerup.com/review/corsair-ax1600i/5.html Please recommend a UPS which would cater to 80 - 90% PSU load keeping in mind the insurge current... and a backup of about 5 to 10 minutes THANKS ShrikeM
  10. I just noticed this on the AX1600i specs label. Does it mean the PSU can output a max of 1300W in North America?
