it's always drawing some kind of power while it is connected to the motherboard but it shouldn't be much unless you have the actual power switch off depending on which PSU you have. The USB is active depending on your motherboard, do you have a lot of things plugged in? I charge my gopro cameras on one of my computer while it is powered off using a usb header.

What do you mean by "hot"? Do you mean it is too hot to touch it? Do you mean it's warm, like human skin temperature? I would think that after a few hours, it should be cool to the touch, but I have never felt my PSU hours after super heavy demanding use.

like lukewarm? Above ambient temperature 40ish degree , when its supposed to be cold.

Oh, that's not hot at all. You have to remember that PSU's housing is metal, the heatsinks are metal, a huge amount of heat is generated when the PSU is heavily loaded, and it's inside of a computer case where there's absolutely zero airflow when the computer is off. So, it's going to take a long time to cool down to room temperature (where it feels cold to the touch).

i could shut off and leave it overnight and its still feels warm, which it is not supposed to.

If i unplug the power socket, this doesnt happens.

Im asking this becos im not sure if it is the norm or something is wrong with my unit.

Hey Metros. I read your posts, but may have missed this. How old are the 2 homes you've used and tested your system? Curious. If it's not cost prohibitive, consider getting a UPS for your hardware. You can view some information about your electrical system (output voltage), including the load of your system with one and it provides, according to the manufacturer, a more stable electrical system. According to APC, "...Power conditioning: Protects connected loads from surges, spikes, lightning, and other power disturbances..." I have them on all my sensitive electronic equipment as it protects them from power outages and the worst of all those rolling brownouts. I got some damage once during a thunderstorm, which opened my eyes.

The UPS can be useful when the system crashes, you can check the UPS state at that time (i.e. if there was an incident). I use APC NS 1250 for my computers - not sure what's available in your country though. Just something to consider if the house is old and has an older electrical system.

Note: When I first tried to play the Witcher 3, it killed, at least that is what I say, my 980Ti. More likely a coincidence though, but I had no issues until I opened that game.

Good luck

I run my 850 G2 passive and while it can get warm to touch under prolonged GPU load, overnight it cools down no problem.

Right now I have no GPU so I can't test, at the moment it's doing web browsing and the PSU is not steel cold but not warm either it's at a point where it's about the temperature of my cold hands. Maybe the top side inside the case is hotter, I think it usually is. But it definitely doesn't hold heat for hours on end.

The power draw on soft power off should be close to none.
Do you have the SF with lighted connectors? Do they keep shining when you turn off your PC? As in soft power off?

In soft power off the draw is like <1W when no USB devices are being powered. Maybe you have some USB power hungry device.

Hello guys, a question to those that own the Supernova G2 750 and the Asus R9 390X:

How are you guys connecting to the 8pin gpu port since the 6+2 vga cable isnt compatible? Is using an adapter the only way to make it work? frown.gif

What?
6+2 from PSU connected to 8pin on GPU no problem why not?

For something like a 280x it's 6+8 = 6+6+2pin. 1 cable for the whole GPU.
