    The fans are most likely spinning at their correct speed when you use the proper cables. When you use the wrong cables it's spinning slower than it should.

    The Corsair fans on their AIO spin at...

    I'd be surprised if it could fit in my case (Be Quiet Silent Base 800). Not that I would want it anyway since I don't have any glass panels.

    I could see this going in that Asus Helios Strix ROG...

    Considering how much people spend on custom cables/sleeved extension cables and there's now PSUs with RGB modular interface panels and with OLED screens on the side... I can definitely imagine a...

    At least now when someone asks for a PSU with an RGB modular panel I'll have something to recommend them.

    What's the purpose of the ventilation holes on the side of the PSU casing near the fan...

    I'd go for the TX650M. It's a good price with the sale they have on it.

    Unfortunately the G5 units seem to be a bit of a step down from the G3 units.

    500W is more than enough for your system. With the G540 CPU and no GPU your system has very low power usage.
    The reason the Corsair CX failed is not an issue with how much wattage you have. I think...

    Is this Wentai's first attempt at a PC power supply? They haven't done anything previously for server PSUs or such? Looking at their website it just lists them as an LED manufacturer, along with the...

    The Straight Power 11 Platinum looks promising, but there's no meaningful reviews out for it just yet.

    The Straight Power 11 Gold is pretty good though and will be a great choice for your build,...

    Ah, right. My mistake. I've been looking at mostly the short versions of the pdfs lately which don't include the ripple tests, forgot they even had them.

    The Mask has already explained why the...

    Do you have a link to this test? Cybenetics reports do not include ripple measurements.

    I see. It does appear that a lot of reviews and store listings list a 2,000,000 MTBF rating. My guess is this was a mistake on the Corsair website/technical specifications when the product was...

    I'm not sure where you're getting the 2,000,000 hours MTBF from?

    100,000 hours is about 11.5 years, which is about right since Corsair warranties them for 10 years. 2,000,000 hours is over 228...

    Definitely not a cost cutting measure. Corsair started using the Type 4 cables in 2015 with the RMi series. The HXi and AXi (excluding AX1600i) were released before then which is why they use the...

    The XG series which is based on the new TEP platform was originally exhibited at Computex 2018. There's some videos of it where you can see the design, and unsurprisingly it has changed between when...

    For a power supply called "Steampunk" it looks disappointingly generic.

    I'm not familiar with Helly Technology. Do they produce any noteworthy units for other brands?
