OCZ ZX 1250W PSU Capacitors problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, my psu OCZ ZX 1250W capacitors 24 pin cable 3 of them leaked, two little more or less two weeks ago, and last night the biggest leaked, as put by sleeving the cables ended up removing the same once and for all, I removed all, the font is normal, in the UEFI mobo shows typically voltages stable as it was before with the capacitors, my doubt is if I remove the capacitors of the cables from the video card will I have problems?

The caps are used to keep the voltages from having a ripple. If I was you id get new ones an put them back on. I have the same power supply an had to replace some caps on the cables from breaking them off.

RMA if possible. If not, replace the caps.

Does anyone know which models of capacitors of the 24 pin cable? I played them out I don't know what the PSU uses at the Cape, and in which locations they will?

About RMA I was so brave in time to see my hardware all sticky like I thought of him, for having bought it about 2 ~ 3 years I have no idea of the store that I bought it, I believe that without this data the ocz will not make the RMA, and another question, I can't be without my PC, since I don't have another PSU!

Know if the to buy only the supply cables part?

I've seen those caps rated for about 200uF to 2,000uF. For the +3.3V cables the caps should be rated for at least 6V, for the +5V rails at least 10V, and for the +12V rails at least 16V.

I wouldn't bother adding capacitors to any connectors, but I wouldn't remove them unless the cable couldn't fit or if a capacitor shorted, such as from being dented or smashed.

Those caps are just a marketing gimmick because the PSU has caps inside it at one end of the cables, and the motherboard has caps at the other end.

Because I also think that more marketing gimmick than a real performance, talking to a friend yesterday he told me that the AX has ferrite filter but the cables the sleeving corsair sells does not have, I think it all looks more like marketing gimmick than a real performance.
