Yate-Loonatics rejoice, for your fan of the day is your favorite brand.

The platform Corsair is using is still CWT based. Uh oh... maybe I should go get the threadlocker.

Two Y caps and an X cap start off the AC transient filter.

Take a wild guess what those blue arrows point to. That's right. Heatsink screws. And they're short. And one was barely tight. Here we go again. Fortunately, the rest of the heatsinks are soldered in. Even more fortunately, it doesn't appear that this little screw issue has led to very many CWT deaths over the years it's been going on. Good for them. But it still drives me up the wall to find this. I'm gonna whine about it as long as my lungs work.

More transient filter including a MOV, two coils, another X cap, and two more Y caps. Bridge rectifiers are a pair of GBU1506's.

Primary capacitors are Panasonic.

Secondary capacitors are Nippon Chemi-Con.

The one big 12V rail also powers the two voltage regulator modules for the minor rails before ending up at that big mess of yellow wires which supply the rest of the 12V rail.

PWM/PFC controller is a CM6800TX.

PFC transistors are two 35N60C3's.

The PFC diodes get their own heatsink.

These are the main switchers, also 35N60C3's,

The 12V rail is supplied by seven 037N08N's.
