Corsair SF600/SF450 [SFX PSU] - Owners' Club - Page 16

post #151 of 167
Not sure if anyone has tried custom cabling / sleeving with this PSU. But let me tell you, I hit a brick wall. A LOT of the cables are doubled-up on the motherboard connector (PSU side). As shown in the images below



I'm planning on opening up the PSU, removing the fan and cutting down the enclosure and have it sit passively cooled by the CPU cooler which should be blowing enough air at it to not be overly concerned about temps.
As people know, the fan operates according to load, not according to heat, or the majority of them are just faulty!? (no one can confirm or deny this right now)

I did change the orientation of the PSU, it use to pull cool air in from the top, but now I'm hoping to use it in exhaust orientation. Even when the PSU is warm/hot, the fan might not even spin if the power load is not optimal.

So my thoughts are, if the fan is not going to even spin, but my CPU fan will be constant, the PSU fan is obsolete. - Once I make the PSU slimmer, I will be able to put another 120mm fan on-top of the heat-sink for a push-pull configuration. the positive pressure provided by the front intake fan will help push the heat away from the PSU and exhaust out the back/side/top.


This was as far as I could get with it today (I need to purchase a soldering iron before i can continue.)

Yeah, I know what you mean, I'm more concerned about the length of cable. That will be the big difference

Damn I wish those had been available when I did my build, I paid a lot more for an EnSourced set, nice find. thumb.gif

Maybe this has been asked on the last 16 pages, if so I am sorry but what could be the or a reason if my SF600 has its fan always on. Even in idle the fan is spinning non stop. Temps are pretty low, nothing hotter than 40° except for my m.2 SSD. I already got the PSU replaced by Corsair but the "problem" is still the same.

//edit

I just noticed that it stops for a short amount of time shortly after I remove the side from my NCase. Any thoughts on that?

Is the fan facing side panel or the inside of the case? Maybe it is either not getting enough air, or it is getting hot air from the cpu.

The fan is facing the side panel. I could move it 180° and see if it works better.

This was as far as I could get with it today (I need to purchase a soldering iron before i can continue.)

This is actually one of the easier to sleeve PSUs and the least overlapping wires. I think I sleeved four SF450/600 PSUs and they are just a joy to work with. All PSUs I sleeved had double wires, Corsair, EVGA, Seasonic, etc. and if I had to pick the toughest brand to sleeve, it would be Seasonic!!!! Those pins are a pain to pull out!!

Here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1420796/repository-of-power-supply-pin-outs/700_100#post_25598875



I updated that pinout I made with the double wire location.

Some of the ones I made:
Node 202, not finished



Silverstone SG10 ( my new rig, still working on it)



My daughter's Lian Li PC-O5x
