Or could I just buy a 2 prong to 3 prong wall adapter and use that for the 2 prong outlet that's in the power cords reach? Would that cause problems with power?

I'm asking because I'm running a sort of high demanding powered rig. Titan X at 1.274v and a 4770K pushing 1.315v.

If you do this. You need to check your power supply rating amp draw and the size if the cord used and amp capability of the power strip ( should by law (in us) be printed on it)

When working with electrical you don't care what vcore you have. You need to care about the potential amp draw of the unit because it can cause fires

Buy the two prong to three prong adapteror upgrade the outlet to a three prong one it usable t that hard to do

Slightly not correct. You can use an adapter but if it is not correctly done it is of no benefit (3rd leg is a ground )

No. All the 3rd leg is,is a ground. It is a safety to protect you and your family from a short.

If it isn't done properly it is not going to help this doesn't mean anything bad happens just that the ground will not necessarily functional depending on a myriad of things

Electrical is not something to mess with if you don't know what your doing. Either pay someone to do it right or start learning

@SteezyTN

 

You can use a power strip. Most of them are able to handle 1875W, and it will keep your rig grounded. If your rig isn't grounded, then you could end up with problems later on. Those adapters that enable you to plug a grounded plug into an ungrounded outlet don't mean your rig will be grounded; it just means you'll have the ability to use that ungrounded outlet, which wouldn't be all that good. However, I have learned that just because an outlet LOOKS grounded (3-prong), it doesn't mean that it actually is. Some outlets in my old house were like that: they should have been grounded but they weren't! I discovered this by using a tester.

 

Actually, I would prefer that you have your rig connected to a good surge protector. Not just any surge protector, but a good one. I personally recommend the Tripp-Lite ISOBAR8ULTRA. It's about the best there is.

 

Finally, don't replace the outlet with a grounded one unless you know what you're doing. If you go to replace it and find that there's no ground wire, then you will be wasting your time and putting your life at risk for no good reason (just because you turn off the circuit, it doesn't guarantee that you're absolutely, positively 100% safe). This is why when you hire an electrician, it's best to hire one who's certified. It's a legality thing.

Hi Guys,

Ok, so my T2 850 has arrived few days ago but as I do not have all the parts ready for a build yet I did not bother unpacking it so far. Had few minutes today so decided to check it out.

Looks nice, good finish quality. I found in the box 24pin tester so I though I will give it a try.

Ok, so here is where problems start. It is dead silent when plugged into wall and charged so to say but once powered "on" via tester it has faint buzzing... now this is not acceptable for me, I will only accept dead silent unit as I am building silent PC. Dead silent was one of the reasons (main) I went for Titanium series. Both of my HX 450 and HX 850 are dead silent so this one should be also as it is even higher grade then HX series.

I will be returning it. The only question that remains is: should I ask for replacement unit or should I return it for a refund and go for different brand? This is where I hope for your help guys.

So my question is - does your T2 units buzzes when powering your rigs (or powering tester). If it is a "feature" or common enough situation then I am requesting a refund and going for another brand. If your units are dead silent and I am just unlucky then I will be asking for a replacement unit and I will give it one more shot.

The buzzing is faint. I can hear it from 30-40cm maybe max and to hear it really well like a quiet conversation I have to put my ear against the PSU. I know some of you may say if it is so quiet then maybe it should not bother me but it does so lets not go there smile.gif. As I said I am only interested in dead silent and perfect unit in this regard.

I did not go for AXi series as buzzing and coil whine plus ticking fan seems to be a common enough problems. Not so much with EVGA psus... but it seems I was unlucky. My unit came factory sealed so for sure it was not a reject of any kind.

Thanks guys for any input on the above.

Looks nice, good finish quality. I found in the box 24pin tester so I though I will give it a try.

Ok, so here is where problems start. It is dead silent when plugged into wall and charged so to say but once powered "on" via tester it has faint buzzing... now this is not acceptable for me, I will only accept dead silent unit as I am building silent PC.

second and more important

what does t2 have to do with silence? the "t" designates titanium 80+ which imo unless running a 100% used server 100% of the time is beyond useless and a waste of moneies

Yeah I was thinking about it as well. I will load it today but I do not expect much TBH. As to: "you wont hear it - it will be in a case" that is not good enough for me as I said in the previous message. If I would like a buzzing PSU I would buy 20e unit off the shelf not 250e one. If you are ok with paying premium and getting medicore that is your right but I am none like it.

Have you seen its fan profile? That is what T2 have to do with silence. Your comments about server show you have absolutely no idea how server world works so better stick to PC examples in the future.

Just received answer to my support ticket with EVGA (on Sunday... nice!). They say replace, should be dead silent.
