[CL] Corsair Launches the AX860i, AX760i, AX860 & AX760 80 Plus Platinum PSUs - Page 9

post #81 of 175
On such an expensive PSU, I was expecting one of these fans inside:

But this is what is actually inside an AX860i:

Don't get me wrong, Yate Loon makes some decent fans, but this is a top-tier product and I'd like to see a San Ace or something similar inside. Using a YL fan on a $250 power supply seems like cost-cutting gone a little too far IMO.

Sound like pretty solid PSU's. Although I personally - to be honest - would prefer the fan to just spin slower when under light load instead of just stopping - while I'm sure the PSU's can handle it the additional reduced temperatures should add couple more years into the PSU lifespan. Perhaps make it controllable somehow, say, a jumper on analog PSU's or software control on digitals.

AFAIK, the AX series line that isn't this new line used San Ace fans. Dead silent.

Yes, many high-end Seasonic power supplies also use San Ace fans. My Seasonic X-750 has a PWM San Ace inside and it's very quiet even when it spins up (the fan doesn't run at <150W load). I've owned a couple of Corsair PSUs with YL fans in the past (GS600, TX 650 V2) and they were not on the same level as the San Ace in terms of noise.

A Yate Loon fan would be totally acceptable on a budget or midrange PSU, but these "i" series PSUs from Corsair are anything but budget.

I agree the San Ace are superbly quiet, even when they do spin up for a few seconds. I’m also disappointed with the Yate-Loon name in this new PSU line, but have to shake myself and think this now is the highest quality consumer PSU line-up currently offered on the planet and Corsair is not going to make a simple mistake like an overly noisy fan. Think we have to take a leap of faith here guys. Have an AX860i coming in this week, so I’ll find out very soon.

CorsairGeorge....couple of questions as I consider an upgrade:

1) I have a lot of effort into custom length cables and sleeving for my existing AX850's. Will these be interchangeable with the 860i? With any of the "i" line?

2) To powdercoat the casing of my 850....I had to cut 3 wires to remove the casing completely, due to the soldering of several wires right around the power switch and plug area. I have a 1200i that I'm not using, but I've opened it up and its using disconnects where my 850 had soldered joins. This allows easy and complete removal of the casing without having to cut...and then rejoin any wires. I've looked at the pictures on johnnyguru...and can't tell for sure how the 860i is done. Can you confirm whether the casing can be completely removed without having to cut wires?

Hi Chris,

Have you seen this? http://www.overclock.net/t/1324891/corsair-deny-all-knowledge-ax1200i-software-broken-probably-applies-to-ax860i-and-ax760i-as-well

If you do intend to push ahead and consider the i-series anyway, I can tell you that the cables are not interchangeable with the non i series. They are however interchangeable between any of the i series, so upgrading from an AX860i to an AX1200i for example does not require a cable change, which is an improvement.

Hmmmm.....perhaps I should wait out a response from Corsair before considering upgrade. George?

I've posted this before, the following power supplies use the same cables:

Group 1
AX1200i
AX860i
AX760i
AX860 *24-pin is different
AX760 *24-pin is different
HX1050
HX1000
HX850
HX750
HX650 *Gold version
TX850M
TX750M
TX650M
TX550M


Group 2
AX1200 Gold

Group 3
AX850 Gold
AX750 Gold
AX650 Gold

Group 4
HX650 *Bronze version
HX620
HX520
HX450


Group 1 is the standard we will be using on all PSUs going forward.
post #90 of 175
George....much appreciated. I had not seen before. Sound like if I'm going to upgrade and do all my cables again.....I should go with an option from Group 1. smile.gif

Any comment on the issues Boris highlighted? Aware? Working on it? Don't think its a real issue?
