Optical Drive # 1







  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 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. I recently custom built my pc and it was working fibe for months. However, it has now started to turn off my house electrics randomly when is on standby. I got the power supply replaced yesterday as I thought it might be the psu thats tge issue as when I plugged it in on its own it turned my electrics off. However, after only a few days it started doing it again. Could it be an issue with one of the fans or a faulty socket?
  4. Hi all, I have the above and a 3090 but I am concerned after seeing various videos now suggesting buying an ATX 3.0 PSU? Will the 600W PCIE 5.0 12VHPWR TYPE-4 PSU POWER CABLE be enough to resolve the issue, is my PSU compatible etc? Thanks
  5. When will corsair break the radio silence on ATX3.0 power supplies? Theyre one of the big players in the space and even have the legendary Johnny Guru in house, yet its been a complete blackout about when these important power supplies will be coming. Wither the Corsair ATX3.0 power supplies??!
  6. Hello. My PC (Corsair One Elite 2017) wont boot anymore, and i think its the PSU. It smells burnt and the fan isnt spinning anymore. Everything turns on fine (other fans, water cooling, LEDs) but i cant get a video feed, so idk whats going on exactly. So, is it possible that my PSU (Corsair SF500) is faulty despite other components seemingly getting power? And i would try to change it with a SF750, but i read that you cant use the same cables when changing PSU, but i think the SF series all have the same pinout, so could i just unplug the old SF500 and put the same cables into the SF750?
  7. I'm upgrading my RM650 PSU with a 1KW version. Any reason to choose an RM over the RMX version or vice versa? MSI Z390 Tomahawk mobo - and potentially an RTX 4080 in the future. MSI recommends an ATX 3.0 but I haven't seen any of those yet. or did I miss them? John
  8. Hi this is my first time posting on here i was wondering if anyone can help me I'm trying to figure out if the premium individually sleeved psu cables pro kit type 4 gen 4 work with the Corsair hx1500i (2022) i know where you connect the psu cables it says this on the psu designed for use with genuine corsair type 4 cable sets only
  9. With the new release of the RTX 4090 soon coming, i am reading that it is preferred that the power supply be ATX 3.0 compatible. i am unsure where to find information regarding if my current PSU can safely be plugged into a 4090 with this information. https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Power-Supply-Units/Power-Supply-Units-Advanced/RM-Series™-80-PLUS-Gold-Power-Supplies/p/CP-9020196-NA#tab-tech-specs
  10. Greetings, To keep the long story short RM850 having zero rpm fan "feature" managed after couple of years to "fry" high voltage capacitors (correct me if I'm wrong), I wasn't the one repairing it. So the PC was impossible to turn on, altough once it's booted, never had any issues. Stress testing, games etc. 4790k@4.8 GTX970 G1 (now 3060Ti) Now we all know why this had happened, and I do believe that I won't be able to reach "threshold" where the fan starts spinning so is there anyone who can help with modding so the fan spins on lower load? I don't want to throw it away, but I had to buy used Seasonic650W while this one was serviced. What do I need to do in order (tried searching around the grid, found nothing) to mod the (?)attenuator/potentiometer(?) to get the fan spinning at lower load. No reason to sell it, nor would I want to explain why was it opened. Basically 200e initially, costed me 20e for repairs, then 50euros for used Seasonic. Nasty Corsair 🙂 Thanks!
  11. Hey Everyone, We are excited to show you our new addition and refresh to the HXi Power Supply family, the HX1000i and HX1500i fully modular ATX Power Supplies! With platinum power at your command, these PSUs have the strength needed to power your most demanding PC upgrades and games. Here's a few quick highlights: Fully Modular, only connect the cables your system needs A 140mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing fan to provide exceptionally quiet and long-lasting performance Fully digital platform with resonant LLC topology and DC-to-DC conversion minimizes noise for extremely quiet operation 105°C Japanese Electrolytic Capacitors means consistent power with trusted reliability. Powerful CORSAIR iCUE software enables you to create custom fan curves, monitor power settings, toggle between single to multi-rail overcurrent production, and more Click HERE for more information. We've put together a quick FAQ below: Q: Is there a Zero RPM fan mode? A: Yes! The PSU has near silent operation at low to medium loads Q: What connectors are included? A: With three EPS12V connectors, these PSU's are fully compatible with modern motherboards Q: What sleeved cables are compatible? A: Our Type 4 Gen 4 sleeved cables here are compatible. Let us know if you guys have any questions or thoughts!
  12. 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.
  13. Hello i have a gaming prebuilt computer i bought and i wish to upgrade the power supply from 750 watts to something higher such as 850W, 950W, 1000W. the current PSU i have is the 750 Watt - CORSAIR RM750 80 PLUS Gold. However, i want to see if someone can provide me the specific product that will allow me to just swap out the power supply without having to do any re-wiring of the existing setup. (Basically, just remove the old PSU block and plug in the existing cables to the new one.) i struggle to understand the chart that corsair provides when wanting to do something like this so i am asking for someone to send me a link to or specify the specific power supply i need to purchase so i can just swap out the blocks. I would appreciate any responses!
  14. 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?
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. I Recently bought an upgrade from an rm650x to a certified refurbished ax1000. I figured a couple blemishes is not reason to not buy. AX1000 installed and cabled just fine, but when on after 3min, 3 hours, 4 hours, ie sporadic, the computer just shuts off. It does not self restart. Power button doesn't function, I have to toggle the PSU at the back to get the computer to restart. Ive swapped the rm650x back in for now. I will begin my troubleshooting: Test cables: Ax1000 with rm650x cables to test for the ax1000 cabling being faulty, and vice versa rm650x PSU with ax1000 cables. External factors: wiring in my apartment is suspect but I've had two computers on this circuit running furmark and prime95 for a total of 1400w at least and hasn't been an issue. But perhaps the fact that I have to toggle the PSU switch to get it to restart is an indicator. I will try moving things off this circuit to separate. Perhaps the sensitivity of the ax1000 causes it to shut off? What might do this and did. I just waste my money on something nicer that doesn't work
  18. Hello, I wasn't sure which thread that I should post this in, however I am wondering if anyone has ever bough a replacement AC Power Cable for a Corsair PSU? I want to move my PC (running a SF750 SFX PSU) from one room to another depending on what I am using it for, however do not want to have to unplug the AC Power Cable every time... which is located behind a unit that isn't the easiest to move. Will any IEC (C13) Cable work for this and the PSU block manages the power, or would I need a special Corsair cable? I couldn't see a replacement one available online. Thanks in advance for any help.
  19. Hey everyone, I recently purchased a refurbished Corsair AX1200i. Everything works fine but, unfortunately, it did not come with a Corsair Link cable which is the primary reason I purchased it in the first place (instead of just purchasing a new PSU). Is it possible for me to purchase a link cable from somewhere or is Corsair able to send me one? I live in Australia and I sent in a support ticket but its been over a week with no response. I still have my RM750i with all cables and accessories (including the two link cables that came with it) but the RMi has a miniUSB port with an optional analogue port. The AXi only has a analogue port for Corsair Link which the RMi analogue cable cannot directly connect to the internal USB header through. I understand this is what I need but have no way of purchasing it even if it was in stock: AX 1200i/860i/760i USB to i2C adapter (corsair.com) This is my first time posting to the forums so please let me know if there are any issues or require more information.
  20. Hi and afternoon. After many years of being a console gamer , I am starting my 2nd PC build. It is a big step from my first PC build which was from the Pentium P3-450 era lol 😄 A lot of time has passed since then (and technology) so I started to get myself a few things on my shopping list..... Can you confirm that the following connections on my RM 850x PSU are the correct ones to connect my Geforce 3080 into ? Many thanks 🙂
  21. Hey. So last Sunday my corsair power supply (TX750M) died as soon as I turned it on. There was a loud click/pop sound, none of the LED lights turned on and even the mains electricity in my room got a short circuit (basically it was off, luckily it was easily restored). Now I've been stuck with a broken PC for the past week now. So on Sunday I've messaged Corsair Support that I want to return my dead PSU in the hopes of receiving a new, properly working, one. I've only got an automated message saying they take 2-3 business days to reply, with there maybe being some delays during the summer. Since the message, there's been 5 working days and summer ended. Right, I know I'm most likely gonna get told that I should wait another week or so but first off, Corsair should update their automated messages. Second of all, the PSU could have caused damage to other components in my PC which then I'd have to replace too. If Corsair Support is gonna take a few weeks let's say, and if my motherboard for example is dead too, then I'd have to wait another few weeks for that to be replaced. Broken PC's are very big issues, and I'd have hoped Corsair realised that. Yes, there could just be loads of RMA request messages right now but I really don't want to rely on my phone for my school work and other stuff for a month or even more. Just gonna put in my ticket number here: 2004628426 Seen other people beforehand send these kind of messages in the forum here and they had Corsair Support reply to them faster. Some are a few years old so things may have changed, but doesn't hurt to try. Sending another RMA request would just clog up the request list more and doubt that'd help. Sorry if I've wasted some people's time as this is a long message and basically Corsair staff can only help me currently.
  22. 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!
  23. 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?
  24. First of all, early happy August to everyone! So I'm building a new pc since I upgraded my wife's with my old cpu and motherboard and I've run into a strange issue I've never had. Here's a breakdown of all the components : ryzen 5600x (corsair water block) Gigabyte B550 Auros master EVGA 3080 (ek water block) Corsair XD5 EVGA 850 80+ gold psu Lian li o11 dynamic XL 32 gigs of vengeance pro ram at 3600mhz 10 QL 120s 2 commander pros 2 rgb hubs (came with the fans) 2 360s In one hub, I had 4 exhaust fans and the XD5 and their rgb hub. In the other, 6 intake fans and their rgb hub. Both pros plugged into USB ports on the motherboard. So, when I went to fill the system, I noticed that the water wasn't actually moving past the gpu (the run goes pump-gpu- radiator-cpu- radiator- pump), yet all the rgb fans were lit. I thought this was curious. Even more so when I noticed that only the intake fans were actually spinning. So, I pulled the number 6 intake fan, and plugged in the pump. Pump worked. Oh, this is also relevant. The computer was plugged into a strip before. This time, I had to plug it directly into the wall. So, computer filled, ran for 12 hours leak testing. I decide to close everything up and install windows. It cuts on for a brief second, then instantly cuts back off. The rams' rgb is still running, which I'm guessing means there's auxiliary power getting to the board, but not enough to power it. This psu previously ran a 3600, x570 board, same 3080,same hydro x set up, and 8 ML 120s (no rgb). However, only a single pro was used. To troubleshoot, I put it in my wife's computer(3600, x570, H150i, 2 sticks of vengeance at 16 gigs). It powered everything perfectly! So I've narrowed it down to either there's an issue with running 2 pros, or 850 watts isn't enough power. Which is baffling! I have a 1000 watt being delivered tomorrow and will update this thread with my findings. Any suggestions are of course welcome! I just made this in case someone else runs into this issue and I get this figured it, it may help someone in the future! TLDR; 850 watt psu worked in old system, doesn't work in new system that has one extra commander pro and 2 extra fans Profuse apologies for the long read!
