[Official] Corsair HX/AX Series Owners Club - Page 78

post #771 of 789
Alright so advice.

I am rebuilding mine from a 7700k to a 7980XE, just waiting on the CPU.

I have a Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G RGB 1250W Digital 80+ Titanium Smart Zero currently.
I have a Corsair AX1200i from another PC build which was stripped and sold but I still have the PSU.

I got the thermaltake mainly for the RGB but that part is no longer needed. I dont like the thermaltake software and the cable extenders I had to buy are very ridged and annoying. I am debating switching back to either my AX1200i or ordering a new AX1500i.

Here are some pics from my build to get a sense. Main changes to the new build are
ASUS ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME
Intel 7980XE
G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 64GB (8GBx8) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C14Q2-64GTZR

Mega Water Cooled PC

Just wanting some feedback.

I'd stick with the 1200i myself, 1500i is not a huge upgrade and only really needed if you want to run three or four video cards, 1200i performs very near to a 1500i, save the cash for GPU upgrade or something. smile.gif

Edit: But looking at your build if money isn't an issue then yes, get the 1500i, bit of a better power supply. ph34r-smiley.gif

Not against reusing the AX1200i, it was ordered Oct 2014 so about 3 years old now. I will need to find some cablemods which are black/sleeved and longer without having to use extensions if possible if I use it though.

With Cablemod cables they have an option to make custom length cables of every type. I did that. And Cablemod's cables are great quality, not too pricey. smile.gif Any color, color combo you want.

Like if you need video card 8 pin cable without the extra 2 pin connector (one 8 pin plug) you can or one cable with s clean 8 pin plus 6 pin you can. I'd get separate values for each card power connector though. Not as clean but better not hedging all the voltage going through one cable on an overcooked card.

Okay so I will just go ahead and go with the AX1500i and get some custom length cables made. I am getting the cpu next week so I will most likely need to do the initial build with the current thermaltake and then redo the PSU plus cables once I get them.

As part of this build I changed the black/white theme to a black and full rgb asus aura sync. All the fans/blocks/strips are now fully aura sync compatible and thats why I no longer need the thermaltake rgb since it wont sync with asus aura software.

I'm jealous of your build. Good news is though I'm getting maybe 20-40k or more from a class action and an going to build a 18 core, 36 thread i9 myself full water with four top of the line Volta cards when they come out for benching, not L2N though. biggrin.gif

Likely the last high end PC I'll be able to build unless I got the lotto for some money or something. redface.gif

In the end I should have about 9-10k into the build I think. Not counting stuff I am replacing and selling at a loss like the existing 7700k, mb/ram/psu.

I'm just wondering if it holds the settings over reboot. And if there's a way to make it always default to OCP off.

Cause supposedly it forgets that it's turned off when it's unplugged.

40 Amps per connector. That means you'll have 60 Amps for a pair of 8 pin EPS connectors plus another 40 amps for the 24 pin ATX connector. Unless the motherboard vendor really screwed up each 8 pin shouldn't be drawing more than 40 amps as they would have no way to know if the cables could support that safely. Across three connectors the board could be pulling over 1.4kW at 12V DC before you trigger OCP, with 960 of that going through the EPs connectors.

You should be fine even with the out of the box settings, but you can use corsair link to turn on single rail mode which will let you draw even higher current limits from a single connector. You do not under any circumstances ever want a 1500W unit that's truly a single rail. A short could be 125A before OCP would trip - fire hazard.

Depending on how high you OC your chip, your 1200i should do the job fine. I have one that has been put through 7970 crossfire abuse folding and 1080 Ti abuse mining with no complaints. The 1500i would only be necessary if you have a pair of GPUs and you also go for sky high clocks under water for the CPU.

EDIT: 40A not 30A

1200i , save your money, spend it on the cables. I ran a 1200i on the current build in my sig.. with the SLI and OC, it was pretty close to 1k draw on full load. spikes around 960 watts.

Check Performance PCs for their damage box items, that's where I got my full cablemod set, saved 30 bucks due to a box dent. Even had the colors I want. worth a shot.

EDIT: should have read further, enjoy the 1500i, I love mine!
PS EDIT: I had shutdown/restart issues with the corsair link installed to a usb header. Had to remove it. I speculate that it's my motherboard, but be wary of that thing. If you get random restarts with the dongle installed, remove that first before freaking out.
