    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 fact that they didn't that alone is bloody suspicious)

    on the down side - try as I could I couldn't get the fan to trigger with the hairdryer
    I tried with the dryer on the 3rd setting - the one that's dragonfire hot & causes the inside of the dryer to glow red (the setting that shouldn't be used on hair dunno why they included it) but even then the fan wouldn't budge

    can't say I'm to surprised really cause it's one thing to thermally regulate the speed of a fan that's already running - but a thermal switch to get a something to start in the first place, this tends to be more...unreliable & fragile
    plus they probably used some **** sensor or something this is CWT after all not Seasonic (Corsair sometimes outsources to Seasonic dunno why they didn't do it for the RMx units)


    so yeah definitely gonna put this **** on sale can't risk using it this reeks of a time bomb

    Jesus Christ. You are thick. Pack up all your parts and sell them.

    The fact that you think that they intentionally built the PSU to die prematurely is mind blowing. It lacks any and all logic.

    Are you a flat Earther? Do you think we never landed on the moon? Is Mars a wandering star.

    Fuck.
