  1. I just upgraded my PSU to a brand new Corsair HX1000i and upon startup i have noticed constant clicks at low power, ( very similar to the relay sound but constant every 2-3 seconds in intervals ). I have read about many new units that do this but it really doesn't seem faulty ( atleast i hope not ). The clicking occurs always below 200w load and does dissapear when above 200w in high loads. Any ideas? There is no fan rattle, and i did check the fan. It sounds like the relay is constantly changing! But i just wanna be sure. Do i need to send it back? or it's ok for a while? I really need this PC for work and i really need to rely on so can't really be constantly swapping PSU's to test new Corsair ones in case i buy the last gen HX1000i. CPU: Ryzen 7 5800x GPU: RTX 3080 12g ( Suprim X ) Mobo: B550 Aorus pro v2 PSU: Corsair HX1000i - upgraded from a 750w Gold one ( other brand ).

  3. With all the recent platform launches from AMD and Intel along with new graphics cards already starting to hit the shelves, you might be looking at upgrading your power supply. The CORSAIR HXi fully modular power supplies are ultra-low noise and feature three EPS12V connectors with 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency. They are also compatible with CORSAIR's iCUE software which allows the user full control for setting custom fan curves, monitoring, and adjustable power settings. Let's discuss some of the key benefits of these new power supplies. First off, these are fully modular PSUs which allows the user to only connect the cables needed in the system, no unused cables and clutter to help better cable management. The triple EPS12V connectors along with high quality Japanese capacitors give full compatibility with modern motherboards while ensuring long-term reliability. Being 80 PLUS Platinum certified, you'll get up to 92% efficiency for exceptional low power consumption, less noise, and cooler temperatures. Zero RPM Fan Mode allows the power supply to switch off the 140mm cooling fan completely during low and medium loads for near-silent operation. When the fan does start spinning, the fluid dynamic bearing (FDB) delivers extremely quiet and long-lasting fan performance. Finally, with it being iCUE compatible, you can set custom fan curves, monitor, adjust power settings, and even switch between single-rail and multi-rail overcurrent production (OCP) all on the dashboard. For a tutorial on the installation and setup of the CORSAIR HXi series power supplies, check out this video here.
  4. Hi everyone, I noticed something very strange with my HX1000i yesterday while tidying up my cable management. I've already opened a ticket with Corsair about it, but I thought I'd try and gather some additional opinions as I'm now convinced I'm going mad... I received the HX1000i as a warranty replacement last year for an AX860i with a noisy, pulsing fan. Since then it has, seemingly, been working absolutely fine. When I tried to plug the split 24-pin cable back in yesterday I noticed that the 10-pin connector slides in quite easily, whilst the 14-pin connector was really quite difficult. I seem to vaguely remember it being quite tight the first time I plugged it in, but I didn't think much of it at the time. With the PSU fan upside down, facing the ports, the first two holes of the 24-pin section should be square, then arch shaped. This is supported by the shape of the cable (stock type 3 cable supplied with the unit), as well as images on the HX1000i product pages and various reviews across the internet. On closer inspection, my PSU's first two holes are arch then square shaped...very odd. So the square pin on the cable has somehow been squeezing into an arch shaped hole, which I didn't think was supposed to be possible. Sure enough, the square pin on the cable is also ever so slightly squashed. All the other holes are the correct shape, it seems to affect just these two, which appear to be transposed. Have I been doing something wrong, or does it look like there a manufacturing defect with my PSU?
  5. Hello all, I have noticed that I can no longer switch my HX1000i to "Multi-Rail OCP", as soon as I switch the slider to "Multi-Rail OCP", it automatically goes back to "Single-Rail OCP" after i reopen the "Device Settings" Tab under the HX1000i Is this a bug in the iCue V4.13.223 software? Many thanks in advance Simon
  6. Hi all, I've just purchased a RM1000X after my previous Corsair CX750M seemed to cause system to power cycle under peak loads when over-clocking. The RM1000X has completely resolved this issue, however this PSU has possibly the worlds loudest coil whine / buzzing. This occurs when both on normal grid power, and when connected to a pure sine wave generating UPS. Under heavy loads such as games, this coil whine and buzzing can be so loud that it's audible anywhere in the house, and most definitely over the audio from my games while wearing headphones. Is there anything that can resolve this? This never occurred on the previous 750W or any other PSU that has, or is running. Unfortunately its literally driving me up the wall and making me dread using my PC currently. It's the only Corsair product that I have problems with. Keyboard, mouse, RAM, cooler, fans, case, etc... all excellent. See video / audio here: - (Video taken while idle on desktop, and connected to pure sine wave UPS) [ame] [/ame] EDIT: Its the RM1000X - my apologies. Confused myself with the naming schemes. Unfortunately unable to edit title.
  7. I read that corsair hx1000i only has inrush current of 36,50 (230v). Unfortunately only hx1000 is in stock. Is hx1000 is essentially hx1000i without the digital stuff? Article is from 2014 https://www.techpowerup.com/review/corsair-hx1000i/5.html
  8. I built a new PC a few months ago and installed a H100i Pro RGB water cooler. It's worked great and I really like the iCue monitoring software. This week my ancient Antec PSU died so I replaced it with the HX1000i PSU from Corsair. I chose the HX1000i so I could control it with iCue. PSU arrived today and I got installed and works great, but I can't figure out how to get the Corsair Digital Link connected. The PSU came with a USB connector and and a separate Digital link cable I've determined to be an IC2 cable. The USB cable is the easy install method but I don't have any spare USB headers on my motherboard, the one I have is taken by the H100i Pro RGB water cooler. I searched all over and it appears I am supposed to be able to connect the IC2 digital link cable directly from the PSU to the water cooler. I can see where the one end plugs into PSU, but I don't see any place on the H100i Pro RGB to connect the other end to. All the pages I've found that say to connect the PSU to the water cooler specifically reference the H100i. Does the H100i Pro RGB not have the IC2 connector? If not, what are my options to get both the PSU and water cooler connected to iCue? Thanks!
  9. Hi, I just bought the HX1000i and I notice one thing i both iCUE and other monitoring programs, the 12v is always at 12.2v instead of closer to 12v. Both 3v and 5v is almost always at 3.00v and 5.00v regardless of load while 12v is always around 12.2v. Is this normal or is something wrong with the PSU?
  10. Since the HX1000i uses shared ports for EPS and PCI-e, can I use an EPS Extension cable with the PCI-e cables? I'm trying to extend the length of the PCI-e cables on the PSU side instead of the video card side to limit the number of extension cables needed.
  11. I'm going to buy the Carbide 400C and the HX1000i PSU for my new build. As I'm still having a 3.5" HDD, I would like to know if I should expect to have some issues with PSU cables clearance and the 3.5" Slots. Thanks in advance!
  12. Hello all, This is my first post, so please bear with me. I purchased the following components for a new build: Motherboard: ASUS WS X299 Sage CPU: Intel Core i9-7900x RAM: 32gb (4x8gb) Corsair Vengance PSU: Corsair HX1000i Drives: 1 - 512gb 970PRO M.2 2 - 2x400gb Corsair nx500 Neutron Cooling: Noctua NH-D15s Grease: Thermal Grizzley Kryonaut Video: Low-end PCIe vid card My question: The ASUS WS X299 Sage has the following power connectors on the mother board: a - 24pin ATX Power b - 2x8pin ATX 12v power c - 1x6pin ATX 12v power Any idea where I would find a 6pin ATX 12v connector?? I am fairly certain that these are different from the PCIe 6 (or 6x2pin) connectors. I have scoured the internet, but to no avail. Also, it looks like the pinout of the 6 pin ATX is similar to the 8pin ATX connector. Therefore, I would assume that I could use an 8pin connector on the 6 pin connector (I am assuming here). Anyways, does anyone have any idea where I could find an adapter that I could purchase that would allow me to plug into the 6pin ATX 12v plug on the mobo? The Corsair HX1000i only comes with two 8pin ATX 12v plugs, so those will already be used. Never have had such an issue finding a cable for a motherboard/PSU before. Thank you in advance for all assistance!
