Found that EEVBLOG video, was pretty neat to watch. I remember overclocking my E6300 to twice its frequency, and since that requires pushing the board FSB well past 500 I could induce the 965P DS3 to...

Noise got to be too much, and without an invoice a fan warranty wasn't going to be an option anyway.

I popped the cover off. I can actually hear the bearings grinding steadily as I turn the fan...

None that I'm aware of. The laser is going to outlast the drive regardless. Some of the DVD burners I've used had to be tossed when the the motor wore out or rubber membrane part of the drive that...

Aye, but that's partly why I created this thread. I'm concerned if I do replace the PSU a new one might make the whine much worse or cause it to whine when gaming.

I did see that post. :D While a...

Ah, thanks for the explanation! Sounds like it's time for corsair to just launch a new flagship product then. :D

Thanks for the reply! Alas my current PSU is a Corsair AX and my 1080 Ti Hydrocopper has some whine, but I'll keep the HXi in mind. Seems to be the highest-end model Corsair sells with FDB fans.

Sure, but why not just swap the fans out later? The original AX1200 is 80+ Gold, but Corsair saw fit to update the design to 80+ Platinum with the AXi which still ships with Yate Loons. Given the...

Are any PSUs great at preventing coil whine?

Are there any specific PSU designs that are better suited for minimizing the risk of the dreaded GPU coil whine issue?

That's a little goofy if the flagship premium AX/AXi series uses Yate Loons and the cheaper models use better FDBs. Guess that shows the age of the AX models.

Hm, for some reason was thinking five years. I'll call Corsair and see if they will be willing to ship a fan.

I am not comfortable splicing in my own fan, the last time I tried that with a 2-wire...

Replacement fan suggestions for AX1200?

I have an AX1200 that has been developing the most supremely irritating clicking / ticking noise. Does anyone know of fans that fit the custom connector it uses, or should I just buy a standard PWM...

So to make sure I am on the same page, this is a single EPS12V motherboard? Is there direct airflow on the connector?

Looks like all model AX, AXi, and HX Corsair PSUs have dual EPS12v connectors. The RM/RMi models have them down to the 850w units. That's a pretty fair number.



If the 10-core can pull that...

Went back to verify and the two ASRock boards have an AUX plug on the opposite side of the board from the EPS12v that wasn't visible in many photos. ASUS was 8+8, both ASRock's are 8+4. Some AORUS...

I prefer modular. Yes there are inherent risks due to poor designs or a lack of sufficient cable polarization. If done right it shouldn't allow for the wrong cable to be connected.
