The click noise is normal. It's a relay in the PSU.

Is the 8-pin you're plugging into the graphics card the 6+2-pin? You're not accidently using the CPU power 4+4 power instead, are you?

Even if it was an accurate reading, which if it's from HWInfo, the BIOS, etc. it's not, it is within spec.

Unless the PSU is an HX1200i, that reading isn't coming from the PSU. It's coming from...

Sounds like the fan controller died. :(

I would have it replaced with a new unit.

Ah.. I See...

The AXi didn't get a "refresh" like the other lines. There's only the "red and black". If you saw a "black and white" AX, it was a "non i".

I attached some pictures to help you out.

The modular PCIe/EPS12V cables are the same pinout where they plug into the PSU.
