  1. I have a RM 750 power supply. Specifically this one: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Power-Supply-Units/Power-Supply-Units-Advanced/RM-Series™-80-PLUS-Gold-Power-Supplies/p/CP-9020195-NA I would like to buy a braided/sleeved CPU cable, as the ribbon cable it comes with is far too stiff to manage in my case. Is this Corsair Premium cable compatible with my power supply? https://www.amazon.com/CORSAIR-Premium-Individually-Sleeved-EPS12V/dp/B07L682RFB/ Thank you!
  2. Hi there, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what connectors are needed for the CMPSU-1000HX powers supply. I know it's quite old, but I'm just needing to buy some PCIe connectors. I can see on the Corsair website they sell Type 3 PCIe connectors but unsure if they will fit this PSU. Any recommendations are appreciated!
  3. What is the hold up with the AX1600i and will it support Nvidias new power connector without an adapter. Thanks
  4. Hi everyone, I´m having issues with a Corsair RM1000i, every time I´m using apps I get random high speeds in all fans they get very loud, when PC is in idle it doesn´t. The thing is that this is not hapenning with an old OCZ stealthstream 600W, I have tried with 2 PCs, I thought this happened due to my old PC , but I bought everything new except the power supply, it just happens with the corsair. I have seen in the task manager that every time this happens it says that consumption from CPU , SSD and GPU is very high.
  5. I built a PC in December and it worked fine for a couple of weeks then I started noticing crashes on my PC where the PC would turn off and the screen would just go black as if someone pulled the cord on the PC I googled the issue and found out it was a "power kernel 41" issue and could most likely be an issue relating to how the PC powers on or the boot settings if not driver and BIOS updates I did all of those things and still couldn't figure out the problem and as a last resort i updated the BIOS of the MOBO and it didn't seem to have worked at all. Around almost a week after updating the BIOS my PC crashed and then just stopped powering on which was like 3 weeks ago now. The RGB logo on the MOBO would still light up as well as that small power LED thing that is next to the PCIe power on the GPU when I connected the PC to power but pressing the power would not do anything I thought it may be a MOBO problem since I had recently updated the BIOS and returned my MOBO to amazon. I luckily still had a couple of days left on the return policy and claimed it as a broken MOBO and used the refunded cash to buy another one. Even with that new MOBO I had the same problem as in the the RGB logos on the MOBO and the power LED on the GPU would light up but pressing the power button would do nothing (BTW I have a MOBO with onboard power/reset buttons and I even shorted the front panel connectors for the power button with a screwdriver and nothing happened) I looked in to the problem a bit more and think that there's a chance my PSU may be damaged because I doubt that different MOBO's which are also different models would have the same issue and the initial problem of my PC crashing was I just updated the PC specs on my profile the PSU is the Corsair HX1000
  6. Hey folks, i recently bought a RTX 2080, but came to notice that it needs more power than my old 1050ti. So which cable do i need to connect my power supply to the RTX. i got an CS750M. I kinda figured that i need a type 3 or 4 pcie, but it seems to be out of stock or is included in a package with 5 other cables i don't need. Is there someone with a link for me, what's the best choice? Thanks in advance, axegb
  7. Hi all, I recently replaced an ageing HX650W with a brand new HX750 (80+ Platinum). The former made next to no noise at idle but the latter has a constant loud fan. From what I've read it's supposed to kick in at 40% load which it feels like I shouldn't be hitting, especially since the old PSU was silent. Hopefully you can see my specs attached - I know the R9 390 is an old power-hungry card but is this normal? I've double-checked everything is wired up correctly. Thanks :sunglasse
  8. Hey, I recently build a PC and bought a new Rmx 750w. However, I noticed very faint buzzing from the PSU when the PSU is on standby (PC is off but PSU is still on). Granted, this is very faint: I didn't even notice it until I was basically hugging the PSU to my ear (I'll post a video when I can, because it's nowhere near as bad as what others had). Nothing out of the ordinary anywhere else, and even when the PC is on sleep mode the PSU is basically dead silent and I can't hear the slight buzzing. Is this just normal for the PSU? Been looking at other forums and people discussing similar issues but I see conflicting messages or they have much worse issues than I do. I have used other PSUs in the past that didn't buzz when on standby. Edit: Here's a video showcasing the buzz. It's very faint but it's there [ame] [/ame]
  9. Hi hopefully one of you guys can help after much messing around.... I have a fairly old but decent spec pc with a vs650 power supply.it stopped working. I have it starting up (fans lights etc) but no signal to monitor. Tried cleaning everything, removing ram, bios battery etc but still same.i have managed to get into bios/windows a couple of times then did a restart and it went into a boot loop. I tested the psu with a voltmeter. Everything seems OK apart from BLUE wire on 24 pin connector. It's reading -11.2v instead of - 12V. Not sure what this wire is??? Could it be the problem??? The power good is 3V also. Any of you guys had a similar experience? Thanks for help..
  10. Hi, im want to know some specs for the vs550 power supply. I'm looking to buy one but Corsair don't give specs like, pfc, what are the protections if the power supplie have like OVP,UVP and there is no manual or something to download. i think that is very poor the information that the page gives. If u can help me, it will be great. Thanks
  11. Hi everyone I'm having some potential issues regarding my PSU. It seems to be making some sort of grinding/clicking noise when under load. For example when I'm playing EVE Online it makes this weird sound after a short period of time. The sound seems to immediately disappear when I alt tab out of the game. I tried checking my other components since I at first thought the sound was coming from my GPU but after close inspection the sound is coming from my PSU. Does anyone know what could be causing this sound? The name and model of the PSU are: Corsair TX 650M. Other than the sound I am not experiencing any performance related issues. Video link to the sound recording: [ame] [/ame]
  12. Hello all, I have scoured the internet for months now trying to find something similar to what I've been dealing with. I have only ever come across one thread with a similar issue which is here. https://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=116511&highlight=ticking I had a Seasonic PRIME 850w Titanium for a few months that did the exact same thing, but slightly louder. It was one of the reasons I swapped it out for this unit instead, but this one also does the EXACT same thing. All voltages are normal and everything is stable. The list of things I've tried goes as follows - Tried different outlets - Bios updates - Overclocked - All power save settings on and off - Hired an electrician to check my wiring in the house - Bought a UPS (cyberpower le1000dg) - Re-did all cable management I am completely out of ideas. It is not loud by any means, but if the room is silent I can faintly hear it. I also find it hard to believe it could be faulty considering this is now two $300 PSUs, while the other PCs in the house run cheap EVGAs and the only noise they make is the fan. When I had my Seasonic I contacted them, which they told me it is probably the Active PFC working. I can't find any info anywhere to corroborate this though. Anyone have any ideas? Is it just really bad luck with psus and should I just RMA it? Or is this just normal operation noise or software issue? Really hope someone can help me out! Thanks in advance!
  13. 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
  14. Hello, I've had my ax1200i for 3 years now, it's been working great until a few days ago. After I use my computer for a bit my PC shuts off then my PSU shows a red light. I hold the power button on my computer to completelty shut it off, I then try to turn it back on, but it only turns on for a second then my PSU immediately goes to a red light. Once again I turn it off completely, I let my PC sit off for a few minutes, then when I power it back on my PSU works normally showing a greenlight, but after a while of using it my PSU goes back to red. I'm not really good with computers, so if I had to take it apart completely to troubleshoot I would be lost.
  15. So a few weeks ago we lost power for a couple of days. Up to this point my pc had been running great with no issues at all. The pc was plugged into a power strip with a surge protector and several other electronic devices plugged in to the same strip. When the power came back on everything else turned on fine except my pc. It is acting like there is no power running to it. We have tried changing the outlet, the power cord, and a few other basic quick fixes but nothing has worked. Any suggestions on a possible fix or is the supply dead?
  16. Hi, I'm not sure I am posting in the correct place (apologies if I am not). I have a Corsair 850 which is connected to: AsRock H81 BTC (motherboard) Rx 570 Gpu (required a 8 & 6 pin connector) The power supply I have is more than powerful for these, I wanted to add another Rx570 to the motherboard, but wasn't sure how to power it. The current PSU can handle another GPU however there are only 2x 6+2 pin connectors, and each of my GPUs need an 8+6 pin. is there a way of running the other GPU on the same power supply, or do I need a different powersupply for each GPU? Many thanks, Tim
  17. My power supply is making random loud noises. It happens even on idle mode. This build has been just a few weeks old. The sound happens every few minutes then stops, then comes back again. I don't see any pattern. But maybe, you could compare it to a cow's sound just with a bit of vibration.
  18. I'm not sure if this is power supply issue, power cable issue, or something else. Last night when I turned on my computer, I thought I smelled something burning. I probably should have turned off my computer at this point, but I was ignorant. Maybe 5 to 10 minutes later, I saw a burst of light come from the back of my PC. I went to check it out and didn't see anything. I opened up my side panel to see if something had happened inside, and didn't see anything. I went to go shut down my computer, but by the time I came back around, I saw something burn up behind my computer. Around 2 inches away from my PC, my power cable connected to my CX750M power supply unit had burned in half and part of it was on fire. I immediately cleared cables from the area, and unplugged the powerbar from the wall. I've had this power supply unit for 5 years. I'm afraid to change the power plug cable and turn the machine back on and have the same thing happen. Does anyone have a clue if it's an issue with the power plug, or an issue with the Power Supply Unit, or maybe something else? Thanks for any insight
  19. I lost the PCIE cable for my Corsair power supply (a CS450M) and I just got a new graphics card. So my friend gave me his Type 4 PCIE cable from his power supply, a Corsair RM850i. It's the red circled end on this connector: https://i.imgur.com/87G2MHP.jpg that I would plug into this end on my PSU: https://i.imgur.com/hyKOuZ7.png Would it work? The pinouts are slightly different with the spare 12V not utilised: https://i.imgur.com/wRw5MnV.png (Type 4 Left) And will the Type 4 PCIE cables I got from him work on my Type 3 power supply? Thank You!
  20. Hey all, Just recently got an RM850i and am enjoying monitoring power consumption in Link. Trouble is, what I really want to see is my total power consumption in a time period, so I know how much my PC is costing me to run. Since Link has always-on monitoring/logging anyway, seems like daily/weekly/monthly/etc. power usage should be a logical inclusion. I can't find this option in Link. I notice I can log to files, but since this also just dumps the immediate power usage, it's not much help on its own. I'm trying to work out how I can wrangle these data points into something that gives me a way of calculating weekly/monthly use, but can't get my head around it. Must be possible, I just need to think HOW. So two questions... 1) Any way to get Link to show me e.g. "Power consumption this month" 2) If NO, how do I utilise the logged values (say at a 1min interval) to get what I want? Ilmiont
  21. The fan of the 860i ramps up quite aggressively, this is a known firmware issue, as anwserd in the PSU section and could only be solved with a RMA (firmware update). In one of the later updates of Link you can control the fanspeed of the 860i to a smoother/custom curve instead of 0% or ~max% it does stand-alone. Wich is a nice update. Only thing is you can't turn off the fan if the PSU is idling so the feature is quite useless as the fan in default mode is off 90% of the time in my rig. Could this be enabled in a next update? Should be a easy thing to fix. Some hard limit to disallow 0% at say 50 degree Celsius would be a good safeguard. http://i.imgur.com/AIXdNkg.jpg
  22. I picked up a CX500 yesterday along with a number of other components with the intention of building a low power home servers. The motherboard is an Asus P8H67-M EVO, with a Core i5-2500K Processor. The only thing attached to the motherboard is a single sata 3.0g SSD. I attached a USB CD-ROM to the machine to do the OS installation, which went fine. I have a Kill-A-Watt meter attached at the wall to track how much power I'm pulling - during the install my usage peaked at 80W and at idle i'm pulling around 26W. After the install I removed the CD drive and rebooted. Upon displaying the login screen, the system shut down and restarted seconds later with a message from the motherboard that there was a surge detected. Long story short - I've determined that adding additional peripherals (a usb cd drive, an internal 3.5in hard drive, etc) causes the system to stabilize. I'm concerned that I may not have enough load on the power supply to maintain consistent power output. Is this a real possibility or is it more likely that I have a faulty power supply? Note: I have disabled the motherboard's anti-surge detection and I experience the same results, just no more message at boot time.
  23. I am thinking of buying these parts and after seeing some issues for some people that their wattage was not enough to keep fans lighting up how they should and instead blinking due to inconsistent power output. I wanted to know if my system that I have here would be able to perform the way I intend on it to and be able to have all 6 of my hd120 rgb led fans to work properly?

  24. My computer randomly resets when it's not under high load and while playing games. However, it most commonly seems to occur during League of Legends. I built it fall of 2015, and starting fall of 2016 it started to have these random resets. The resets occur with no noise or any other type of warning, the screen just suddenly goes black, the tower lights turn off, then it powers itself back up. The resets come in couplets or triplets, and seem to be growing more frequent. I've now had about 4 events in the past week and a half. Most commonly I log back in and resume my game, which is when it then repeats itself one or two more times. Typically, it seems to be within the first hour or two of me having started up my computer, then it'll be fine for the rest of the night. I have had it reset again before getting back in the game, while opening skype and the other programs up, but that was only once. I set my active hours to fit when I play most, thinking it may be windows updating, however that had no effect. I tried going to the event viewer, using a guide for an error I found, but this hasn't solve the problem. I do not remember what the error was, but I believe it was a VPN app that was the issue, since I just jumped on the first error in the log I saw. The error and critical events are logged after the computer is turned back on, not sure if this is anything significant? In event viewer I find a kernel power error around the time of each reset, so I checked that my PSU and all the cables are plugged in properly. For this event I get the following data: EventData BugcheckCode 0 BugcheckParameter1 0x0 BugcheckParameter2 0x0 BugcheckParameter3 0x0 BugcheckParameter4 0x0 SleepInProgress 0 PowerButtonTimestamp 0 BootAppStatus 0 Checkpoint 0 ConnectedStandbyInProgress false SystemSleepTransitionsToOn 0 CsEntryScenarioInstanceId 0 I logged my CPU temps during a game of league and found the max temp to be 48 degrees celsius. I also have played Dark Souls 3, Battlefield 1, and WoW with no resets occurring while playing those. I used memtest briefly and that found no issues, however I could potentially go back and run it for multiple more passes. I also ran DSKCHK which completed saying no further actions are required. I've updated my Mobo bios and I keep my gpu drivers up to date. I've also tried patching the game, then I reinstalled it, still no luck. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
  25. I built a gaming PC two days ago. I use Corsair CX750 in my build. For the first time I started playing game, power supply was buzzing. Whenever GPU is under load, power supply buzzes. The buzzing sound of the PSU rises proportionally to the workload of the GPU. When GPU is in idle, there is no buzzing. How can I solve this problem? Is there a possibility that GPU causes that voice?
