  1. does PSU temperature depend on relative or absolute load?

    dunno how to better formulate this so I'll use an example

    suppose you got 2 PSU's, same format build quality brand series efficiency etc. differing only by capacity

    eg. one is 500W & the other...

    welp...on the plus side the fan does spin for a few seconds on start. barely audible even up close which means (in other words they could've left it at that speed by default even on low setting, the...

    so as I said is there any safe way to test the thermal control of the fan & see if it works?
    (I don't have an extra graphics card to increase load)

    like artificially heat up the psu or something...

    even IF it can survive the heat (ie. IF Corsair didn't design this deliberately as a sort of planned obsolescence)... a PSU becomes less efficient when it heats up right? various things like ripple...

    one was RM750 another was RM850 & another was RM750i (the RMi one suppose to be high end just like the RMx)

    so if total load's 400W and efficiency's 90% then heat energy wasted is ~40W?

    hey like I said I'm basing this on testimonies from other users
    when all other possibilities are eliminated ...

    either that or it means it's designed specially to overheat enough to shorten lifespan (warranty's irrelevant cause Corsair can claim it was negligence or something)
    case in point the other guy...

    I didn't understand that explanation how does that explain how to fix the unit?
  9. any way to fix critical RM1000x flaw? (modify default fan speed))

    so I recently bought an RM1000x at a bargain price it was a recent unit from january 2018 & I have his bill
    basically was tempted because of the good reviews it got (on this site & kitguru)

    yup it got 2 big heatsinks

    didn't have to increase vcore all that much only by 0.2V maybe 0.25V iirc
    afaik it stayed @ that clock but can't remember for sure if there was throttling tbh (didn't...

    so overclocking is the best way to test the VRM?

    what if with a 2.8ghz stock cpu it can be overclocked to a stable 4.3ghz (after a shitload of messing around in bios) does that mean the phases are...

    how to tell if a mainboard has good VRM?

    reviewers never mention the FETS or anything like that when they review a mobo (they mention the caps maybe but that's about it)

    a vrm with many phases is good but if the phases are shitty quality...

    btw on a mobo anyone know how to tell visually between eg. a true 12-phase VRM & a split 6-phase VRM (also called "12 phase" sometimes)?? :confused:

    well it's bad enough it had only chin solids (even near the vrm & cpu!) but I also didn't feel comfortable with only 4 phases & potentially too much heat near those not-so-good caps so I sold of the...

    official top wattage is 70W but actually that's a lie (cause wattage always goes > official figures when using stresstest apps)

  19. using Prime95 on a mobo with few VRMs: safe or not?

    k so this related to my other topic
    so, on my old (current) board the VRM got 12 mosfets for the CPU (it's an old board but a high-end one)
    monitor says usually only 4 mosfets are active (even...

    that sux

    why don't they use quality caps in sound cards? (solid caps or at least quality standard caps)

    alrite so just so were clear the caps in that last pic at standard electrolytic caps? (with a metal cover to make them look like solid caps)

    any idea of the brand?

    "GP" is that a brand? (origin?)

    also "wet lytics" is it the same as just 'lytics? (like, standard sort of caps) or is there different types of electrolytic caps? :confused:

    there's this Asus soundcard I dunno what those caps are:
