Thread Starter 
1.My PSU

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...006&Tpk=tx750w

2.Fan thats going to be used

see attachment.

My questions:


1.How do I discharge the capacitor completely
2.Is the fan going to be enough to cool the PSU
3.Has anyone any previous experience with modifying the PSU, so I can pm him

Thank you for your time.

Looks like its the same PSU case as my Powermax 850, I changed the fan out on that and it was dead silent. If your lucky you'll get it in their on the silicone rubber fan mounts, I did (you'll need to loose the grill though). My experience was as long as there was some airflow it was OK, I don't think your rig is really going to be stressing that PSU. You won't need to touch any of the internals, just the fan wires - PM me if you need, I can tell you how it comes apart.

Voiding the warranty for this?

Why not just sell it and get a quiet 500w PSU...

Just make sure black goes to black, red goes to red, and yellow goes to yellow. (red= 12V, black= ground, yellow= tachometer [speed control]).

It'll work. Don't worry about it.

As for the primary side capacitor. They don't hold charge for that long. I'd say keeping it off for a good half hour should be more than enough.

Shut down your computer.

Unplug the power.

Hit the power button a few times on the PC just to make sure.

On the first attempt you'll see the lights and everything flash for a moment, then turn off.

Nothing on the next few tries.

Then leave it overnight on a table.

You're safe to go.

Thank you for your concern. But also I like to mod, I also modded case for better airflow and added foam, did a HDD suspension and so on, will post pictures.

Thank for the info will do. But I was hoping I could just stick in the 3 pin oh well, more modding for me

Very very nice. I was actually going to attach a light bulb to the molex and let it discharge, also the light bulb is a nice indicator if its fully discharged, but your idea is much better and easier to do. Thank for the tip.

So cut PSU and Fan cables bind them with your finger (like any other wires) and isolate with tape.Done
or..

PSU fan:

Model -D14BH-12
Size -140x140x25
Volt - 12
RMP- 2800
CFM -140.0
db - 48.5

Noctua Fan:

Model -NF-S12-1200
Size -120x120x25
Volt - 4-13 (so enough - but it want be at full speed because of 13v)
RMP- 1200
CFM - 47.43 or 81 m³/h
db - 17 db

Why bump the thread?

As for replacing the fan. I replaced the fan in my HX1000 (I am crazy, I know) with one of the exact same type (Yate Loon) and speed, just with red LEDs in it. All I had to do was order the crimp-ons and remove the 3 pin crimp-ons and put the new ones on then plug it into the 2-pin connector.

The fan inside most likely plugs into something, rather than it being soldered to something so you should be able to get some crimp-ons and just re-use the old plastic housing connector.
