Just install my corsair AX850 and fan no spinning. - Page 2

post #11 of 36
Ya I am not confident that the AX series ever turns the fan off totaly. My AX1200 never has even doing a POST check.

Ultra Low Noise — Hybrid Silent Fan Control

The Corsair AX850's energy-efficient design allows it to operate reliably with minimal cooling, and hence very low noise levels. The AX850's Hybrid Silent Fan Control technology offers three modes of cooling, depending on the load level. This includes a fanless mode of operation (0 rpm) up to about 20% load, a quiet, low fan speed cooling mode for typical loads up to around 50% load, and a higher performance cooling mode for more demanding loads. Noise levels still remain low even when fan speeds start to climb, thanks to the use of a premium-quality 120mm San Ace fan from industry-leader, Sanyo Denki.

Yes, to reiterate, it's a known feature of the Corsair AX series (other than the 1200W model) and Seasonic X series, and a few others.

TwoCables is correct.

There is always a chance of a failed component, but I have the same PSU and that's how it's designed. Try running it a little harder and you'll see/feel the fan spinning up.

If it actually is bad (which I doubt), then I guess TwoCables owes you one.

You can read the reviews of others here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...orsair%20AX850

Its the way it designed, but others also had problems like I described above, so it wouldn't hurt to check that the fan turns freely.

The Corsair AX850 and the other AX series PSU's are designed to start the fan when It only needs it. It has thermal sensors throughout the PSU to check a temperature and then if it's high enough, then it automatically starts the fan. Nothing to worry about there, but I'd play a game (Like Bad Company 2) and see if the fan starts.

You're welcome.

By the way, the reason why these get this warm is in case your hands are cold and you have no other way to warm them up.

Err, I mean it's normal. hehe

Since the day I got mine, the fan did not spin. Always figured there was something wrong with it. Well, a few days ago I was playing BC2 when all the sudden I heard a loud POP. Yep the power supply had went bad.

I used it as a secondary power supply along with a AX1200. I had tried to keep an eye on it to see if it ever warmed up enough to spin the fan but it never did. It was warm to the touch but never what I would consider hot.

Guess it shoulda been spinning. Not sure why Corsair made it temp controlled. I would prefer it to run all the time.
