Ax850

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I got my AX850 about 1.5 Months ago for my SB system.

I have been experiencing random power cuts, so I am suspecting the PSU.

Anyways, I notice the socket where you plug the power cord in to looks very poorly made; it's not on straight and there is a small gap between the black socket thing and the back of the PSU. You can easily move the cord about and although it doesn't turn off when you wiggle it, I'm wondering whether this could be a problem?

Do you think corsair will RMA?

I assume you are using the power cord that came with the PSU? If not, maybe try that?

I think that Corsair will at least hear you out, and if they don't want to RMA it at first, perhaps their customer service will at least try to help you fix it. I haven't heard horror stories, at least that I can remember, of OCN members dealing with Corsair giving them trouble over RMA's.

Yeah, using the one which came with the PSU.

When you push it in, it just doesn't seem like it's going in properly, if you know what I mean?

(no innuendo's please )

I see no harm in at least contacting Corsair about the issue. And the AX850 has a 7 year warranty, so unless you damaged it somehow I don't think they will give you issues. Do you happen to have another PSU power cable around? If so, try to see if that makes a better connection, it could just be that the plastic molding got messed up somehow.
Another thing I can think of, although unlikely, is that you are tripping the breaker. Maybe the wires running to the outlet are powering something else you are not aware of.

I have tried two different power cords, did the same.

I have it connected to an extension cord which isn't powering anything else apart from my monitor (pulls about 60w).

But the problem is, the PSU does it most often when the PC is idle.

That is very odd. I'd contact Corsair.

I had suspected it was the motherboard previously, and due to the Intel recall I can hit two birds with one stone if you like.

When I get the B3 motherboard, if it still does it I will RMA the PSU.
