So one month ago suddenly my motherboard died while i was using my ~SigRig~ and i had to buy a new one as i am not in the US right now but finishing my studies in india and asus wont replace my motherboard unless it was in the US.

So i took a chance and sold my 4770k and 16gb ram and bought new 6700k with z170 impact mobo and new ram, so i went and put everything on cardboard,put the CPU in place and connected the 24 pin to the mobo and the powersupply (I usually start testing new parts piece by piece) made sure that the power supply was off and connected it to the wall and after that i wanted to move the mobo a little bit and i go electrocuted (Although the power supply was off).

So i unplugged it directly from the wall and from the motherboard and touched the mobo again and nothing happened ~I said maybe there is something wrong~ so i checked the powersupply and nothing was touching it so i grabbed a can of pressured air and tried to clean it just in case, then put it back on a cardboard and connected it to the power plug and i touched it and again it electrocuted me not even connected to the motherboard yet!!!!

So i unplugged it again and changed the power cable and the wall plug and still the same thing so what the hell is going on it killed my old motherboard and now maybe the new one is dead WHAT THE HELL???




Please any one knows whats going on this was my only hope it the new parts are damaged i am out of the PC world for a year at last i worked hard to get that money and i cant do anything about it sad-smiley-002.gif

You dont need 860 watts either unless you are going to have two super high end video cards with overclocks.
A 550 watt PSU is more then enough for a system with a single video card in it.
Hi shilka,

I built two computers at different times with RMx PSUs and was amazed that they are completely silent at all times, there was no coil whine lottery as far as I can tell. I have AX860, bought it about 1.5-2 years ago but I'm getting tired of coil whine at different load levels when running off wall and extreme coil whine when running off very expensive Pure Sine Wave APC UPS battery. It really feels like overrated PSU and relic from the past (released in year 2012 or so) compared to new ones like RMx series.

I'm thinking of getting RMx PSU because I want CWT platform and I don't want to mess around with Seasonic coil whine lottery any longer. I'll RMA Corsair PSU and probably sell it or something. Is RM850x similar efficiency at 15% and 50% load? That's my only concern.

Efficiency at 15% is going to be lower then at 50% yes.

What happened? I took my build down for some upgrading, Mainboard, CPU, RAM, GPU's, and a beautiful CaseLabs
S5 case.... OK, so I am doing a new build! biggrin.gif When I took my Corsair 1200i PSU out for instillation and hooked everything up, it failed and shut down after a short period of time....

I bought this thing, Brand New, in a sealed box, on eBay 6 months ago! It has a 7 year warranty, do you think that Corsair will cover it? eBay, and the guy a bought it from, are not Corsair approved retailors.

I checked it with a PSU tester...

https://youtu.be/FsR9yYyZqjg

Is there anything, I can do to further, to diagnose the PSU?

Just with the serial number printed on the box or PSU Corsair can give you the warranty.

Many years back I used to exclusively use Corsair PSUs - I still have 2-3 in the house, but mostly use them for test/spare builds. However, I moved away from using them in primary builds due to buzzing/humming issues. I recently decide to come back into the fold and ordered a new AX1500i from a store in the US. I plugged in the unit without any cables expect for the power cord. The unit passed the self test.

However, while standing in front of the unit I noticed that even with the power switch set to "off" the unit was generating a buzzing sound. The closer I got to the rear (power cord end) of the unit the louder the noise got. Switching the unit "on" didn't change anything. I also used it to power a spare PC I build to see if applying a load had an effect - it didn't and the same noise is present.

I killed my home AC unit and recorded the noise: https://youtu.be/za7CG8E0YMc

Is this normal? I read that there was a hardware revision of this unit. How do I tell which version I have?

Thanks.

Many years back I used to exclusively use Corsair PSUs - I still have 2-3 in the house, but mostly use them for test/spare builds.

I plugged in the unit without any cables expect for the power cord. The unit passed the self test.

However, while standing in front of the unit I noticed that even with the power switch set to "off" the unit was generating a buzzing sound. The closer I got to the rear (power cord end) of the unit the louder the noise got. Switching the unit "on" didn't change anything. I also used it to power a spare PC I build to see if applying a load had an effect - it didn't and the same noise is present.

I killed my home AC unit and recorded the noise: https://youtu.be/za7CG8E0YMc

Is this normal? I read that there was a hardware revision of this unit. How do I tell which version I have?

Thanks.

Ordered a second brand new unit. Same issue. I'm so damn disappointed in Corsiar. Details can be found here: http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=159337.
