I beg to differ.

The Seasonic X Series adopts a clever “Hybrid Silent Fan Control†design, which offers three distinct operation modes, fanless mode, silent mode, and cooling mode. The X automatically adjusts fan mode and speed according to the ambient temperature level, which not only optimizes heat dissipation, but also prolongs lifespan of the system by reducing unnecessary fan rotation. To make the X Series even more robust and exciting, Seasonic offers Sanyo Denki San Ace Silent Fan on X, the best fan in the industry, to ensure ultra low noise performance and quality.

Does this effect all Corsair AX units besides the AX1200? I have a AX850 that is less then a month old.

Question remains Phae, if I typically run a load of ~300W (wall) would you advise I pick up a x660 with this knowledge, as I very nearly did this morning? Or would you advise to wait it out?

Yes, however it's unlikely that you'll see problems in just a month of use. It might take six months or a year or more. We don't know at this point. But all SeaSonic X series units with the semi-passive cooling mode may be at risk.

You should be getting enough load to make the fan turn on, at least when under high system load. But it may be better to get an X460 or X560 for a system like that.

The X-850 has no switch to change modes between fan always on and fan sometimes on.

With that kind of load, you're better with an X-560

Yeah most likely, still 1 more sensor could have saved lots of trouble.
Going with a 0rpm fan design must take lots of testing, I can't believe they just based the fan speed on a single sensor, if it ever have to fail or indicate bad temps then the whole psu is damaged ...

I thought that such kind of company would have gone with a failsafe.

What power supply do you have?- Seasonic X-650
How long have you had your PSU? 5 months
What fan mode do you run it in (if applicable)? n/a auto controlled fan
What are your system specs? Sig rig....gpu OC'ed to 900/1385

Are your primary caps bulging? No

Well it's not like these sensors are prone to failure. It's just a thermistor, two wires, and a connection to the secondary control ICs which usually have OTP built in. Problem I, I think most of those control ICs only take input from one thermistor. So SeaSonic probably spent a great deal of research time finding the optimal place to put that single thermistor, but didn't think it worthwhile to use up extra PCB space for another IC and aux SMD stuff just for more thorough OTP.

I don't know, it depends a lot on the exact way their OTP and fan controller are designed.

Fill out the form for me so we have more context for that data.
