Oh, see that's even better. I was wondering if I had overestimated. thumb.gif

Ok, To all the AX ownres here, Does anyone know exaclty which of the 8pin ports(?) is meant for the 12v CPU power? SO i have the 1200, which has 2 for the CPU and 6 for GPU's. But in the book or anywhere for that matter, there is nothing pointing in what port is for what, as i have heard that the CPU is wired differently to the GPU power ports.

Can anyone shed some light into this matter? are they wired differently? Is there a way to differentiate the GPU and CPU power connectors(not the cables, thats obvious)

any of the gpu or cpu connects will work

also to stay on topic, bye bye HX1000, hello AX1200, didn't think my HX1000 would be up to the task of my 3xPalit 580 3gb's

don't want to take any chances =P

Hi guys!

Bought an AX750! Add me to that list too. I'm keeping the HX450, of course, it is going into my Media Center!

13032011780.jpg

13032011776.jpg

The fan on the AX750 is smaller than the HX450. It has a different design too. Since it's more efficient, it probably does not need a fan the size of the one in the HX450.

13032011779.jpg

Cable management should be made more compatible across Corsair's Professional lines. As you can see, a lot of different connectors here.

A question to the AX750/850 owners:

I'm connecting the cables, but I have a doubt: the motherboard cable has two connectors to the PSU; do you have to connect them both ? I seems a little strange they put two connectors in there, especially since if I have to connect them both to the PSU, I'll have to do some odd wire arrangement as they seem to have been put together in the wrong order.

It's disappointing to see that nor the manual nor the PSU have any indication whatsoever on this. The PSU could at least have some indications near the sockets.


Also, Corsair provides two sets of cables to feed the CPU, and while they seem to have identical electrical connectors, one of them has a bigger connector to the PSU - although the wires only occupy part of the connector.

Why is this ? Couldn't they have provided identical cables ? This seems to induce a bit of unnecessary confusion.

Umm... Can you be bit more specific like the 4+4 pin or the 24 pin? Could you show a picture... Because I think it should be clear on the plugging in stuff part

Sorry, I forgot to mention, it's the 24 pin cable that has two connectors that I was wondering if they had to be both connected to the PSU, or if you could do with just one. It wasn't clear to me as the connectors don't fit in the same row, but the biggest one fits in the bottom row of connectors and the smaller one fits on the top row of connectors. And it's weird because the cable was put toghether in a way that makes it odd to connect them like that. And since there are no markings on the PSU, it adds a bit to the confusion.

Anyway, I decided to connect them both, and the PSU is running fine.

Now I have another question to those who have the same PSU. Is it normal to hear very faint beeps in 3 seconds (more or less) intervals ? They are very faint and are noticeable when you put your ear next to the PSU when the PC is turned off - but the PSU is still on. It seems like some sort of diagnostic signals since they are at what seems to me fixed intervals. The HX450 makes no noise whatsoever, hence my question of whether this is normal or not.

Thanks for the video, I had actually watched that video and a few others on Youtube, but none of them actually show how to conect the cables. Sure, it's not that hard, but this in particular is quite odd. It should only have one connector at each end of the cable.

I think I can answer one of the cable seperation questions...

For the 8 Pin CPU power connector. Some motherboards require a 4 pin, and only a 4 pin connector. It is seperated for that single reason. They want to be able to support the different types/brands that the customer may connect that PSU to.
Same goes for the 24 pin. If it is seperated into a 20+4 pin. Some older motherbaord only require a 20 pin MoBo power. Turning this into a 20+4 pin connector allows it to be much more versatile.

As for the correct side of the cable to plug into the PSU, if you notice the connectors should have different shapes, and those shapes only allign with a female connection on the PSU. I have an HX750 and it has a similar layout, except the 20+4 pin and 4+4 pin are not modular.

No, no, no, you didn't understand what I said at all! LOLOLOL I'm not THAT ignorant.

I didn't ask anything about 4+4 CPU power nor 20+4 motherboard power.

I'm talking about the 24 pin cable having TWO connectors to the PSU itself, that connect to two different rows in the PSU. Your PSU does not have this feature, so you probably don't know what I'm talking about.
