    Wow. AVC. That's a name I haven't heard in a very long time.

    Yeah. I've seen that before. Unit gets dropped and steel twists which causes the top half to pop out of the bottom.

    I'm afraid it's an office machine. Not a gaming machine.

    As ashiekh said, you could put a low profile, low power card in there, but the number of games you'll be able to play will be limited.

    It only has a 320W PSU?

    Is this a prebuild? An HP, Dell or Lenovo, etc.?

    EDIT: Never mind. I missed the HP 800 G1 part.

    Right. But since the CX600's fan controller is probably only putting out about 7 or 8V, I'm surprised it worked at all.

    Ah.. Yeah.. PWM fans don't work like that. You have to use a DC fan.

    Isn't that Noctua fan a PWM fan? Surprised it spun at all.

    Exactly. It was a cheap PSU with cheap parts. Never meant to last more than 5 years.
  11. That PSU is so old.. it just needs to be retired.

    That PSU is so old.. it just needs to be retired.
  12. Boredom?

    Boredom?

    I know. You could do that, but you would need an MCU in the PSU. I wonder what's cheaper. The additional wire or paying someone to program the table into the MCU. :D



    Actually I have two...
  14. Awesome question! Maybe that's my next test. ...

    Awesome question! Maybe that's my next test. Make a stupidly long cable, see what the voltage drop is and the compensation done.

    In all seriousness, let me research what's already implemented and...
  15. Of course. The only thing the sense wires are...

    Of course. The only thing the sense wires are doing are sensing the voltage at the load. Nothing more. The ICs already know what the voltage is at the PSU. :D
  16. If it senses nothing, it does nothing. The sense...

    If it senses nothing, it does nothing. The sense wire is an ADDED sense. It's still getting voltage readings from the output side of the output filtering caps and on the modular interface (if...

    I didn't get to see that response, but it's full of obvious points.

    I never implied that sense wires weren't doing anything. In fact, in my post I said, "Again, we see a drop, but not a...

    LOL! My post on Reddit was removed by their mods!!!!!!

    Yeah. That is a great article.

    So, at least for Corsair, the sense wires are an "after thought". Other PSUs were "beating" Corsair in PSU reviews in the voltage regulation department. Turned out...

    Any way.... I'm getting trolled too easily.

    How to prove sense wire isn't required in theory: You want to test a PSU. What do you do? You jump the power on with a ground wire. The PSU powers...

    Because I have tons of cables and a coworker broke my pin removal tool.

    Seriously.... what's easier? Snip the wires or pop them out of the connector (answer: cut them).



    That.... does not...

    Now I'm being told that "some power supplies require them" without being told which power supplies those are.

    LOL! Some people just like telling others that they're wrong.

    Of course, this is...
  23. Removed sense wires from 24-pin and tested on Chroma

    Because so many people that were sleeving their own cables were complaining about the double wires on the 24-pin, I decided to do an experiment.


    I told everyone that the sense wires were not...
