I currently have a Corsair AX1200i PSU and was considering swapping out the fan for a different model, one with LEDs. Has anyone done this or know if any 4 pin PWM 140mm fan will work?

Sorry to hear that. Our RMA team is usually on point when processing RMA request. The only reason I could think of why your RMA took some time to get processed is, backlog in our inventory. That rarely happens, but when it does, it does take some time to replenish our inventory, especially with fast mover items like AX PSUs.

Tbh, I wouldn't recommend it. Swapping the fan on any of our PSU will automatically void the PSU's warranty. That's a flagship PSU, I just don't want you to waste the warranty that comes with it. Just my 2cents.gif

I have done this a few times with the AX 1200 (non "I" version) for color themed builds in the past, the pictures of this can be seen in my sig.
And like Corsair Joseph has stated, it voids the warranty doing this, so this is obviously extremely risky.

I don't mess with the 4-pin connecter at all when I swap the fans out, I very carefully drill a hole on the front side and run the led fan line out of the case, so I can control the fan in the mobo if needed, as shown here:

http://www.overclock.net/g/i/2073601/a/1062172/custom-psu-sticker-thread/sort/display_order

there are more pics of this in my profile somewhere I think, hell there might be some in this thread, somewhere.
Good luck mate.

Got a new AX860 (which was actually a replacement for an AX750 that recently died) and a new Asus Z97-A 3.1 mobo. However i've what seems to have permanently fried all my drives. 2 SSD's and 2 HDD's. All four are dead.

At first i thought i had a bad mobo being that, that was also new out of the box, so rma'd that, rec'd the new one, and same thing.. All four. Not one !!! Took the SSD's to a different machine to confirm that they're dead.. Not even being recognized in the bios.

Took a new SSD, and plugged it in to the new rig, and boom fired up straight away.

So something, somehow managed to kill all four of my drives in one clean sweep.

It has me very worried.. Not only that i've just lost nearly $400 in hardware, but everything as you can imagine were on those drives. I do have backups, and all my games were pretty much on steam... But even so.

All i really did as part of my troubleshooting process was to plug the new gear into a spare AX760, to make sure one of the peripheral leads of the psu was not the culprit... It could very well be, as i did try different peripheral sockets as part of my troubleshooting..

I'm wondering if one could of possibly caused some kind of overvoltage and fried the drives... I may of then switched the cables around and plugged in my two other drives using that same cable.

I've got the machine working ATM, with the new SSD... I'm about to order 3 new drives frown.gif to get me back to where i was.

I have a new mobo after the original was replaced... I'm wondering if i should rma the PSU to be safe.... what could have possibly happened that all four drives are fried. The AX860 is new from Corsair's own RMA.

It's also plugged into an APC 750 battery backup unit. so doubt a spike happened. I'm pretty savvy to static, and always make sure i'm discharged when working on anything electronics... I've also been working as a system engineer for 20yrs, so know what i'm doing. Nothing what plugged in / unplugged without the power off, switch off. So kinda worried.

Maybe something just bad luck (like VERY bad luck in my situation) and everything will be fine from here onwards.. Won't know for sure til my new drives arrive on Monday and it they die on me also, then i guess i'll know for sure that my AX860 is causing it.

Or should i just send this back to Corsair for an immediate replacement and totally eliminate that risk that it could happen again.

If I wanted to get it started I would have to turn off, unplug, and let it sit for 15-30 minutes. Then it would turn on, but would eventually crash. A couple months ago, I got my new one, from sending the other back, it has worked great until today. It is doing the same exact thing. Nothing has changed, so I don't know if these are notorious for this problem, or I have very bad luck. Any input would be awesome!

Since this post, in July, I had to do another rma on my psu. I started reading on-line, and seen a lot of the same problems. I called tech support, and they were very understanding. They upgraded me to a HX750i, to replace my AX750. I was starting to think it was something I was doing. But nothing has changed, in my computer. I guess I just have unusually bad luck.
