I consider idling to be when the fan stops spinning entirely, which is a feature of the Gold series power supplies, or at least some of them. Mine stops spinning when I have the case open and the graphics card removed. It just seems to me like the graphics card pulling heat up from the PSU beneath it should be adequate to manage heat generated by idle system power load on the PSU. I would expect the fan to run more frequently if the PSU was oriented with the vent facing downwards as the heat would just build up, requiring air flow to remove the heat that is unable to naturally escape upwards like it should be able to with my setup.

OK so I posted here a while back when I first bought my X-1250 and put it in the rig I was using at the time (which is now the wife's rig lol) but it has a new home now in my new rig so here is a couple of pics.

 

 

 

 

 

the wiring took a while but I'm happy with it for now till I either get extensions or I sleeve it myself not sure yet.

 

 

 

 

 

Pretty clean though I think thumb.gif

From what I read in your post, it sounds like you have the psu's fan air flow turned round. That fan is the psu's intake - the ventilation on the rear of the psu is its exhaust. My X-850's fan spins up only when I put a load on the cpu - gaming. - or when the ambient temp goes above 77f. So your graphics card isn't going to be pulling heat up from your psu - even when the fan isn't running. Your case has 2 front fans intaking cooler air that will hit the graphics card intake fan - with the psu fan not spinning, that just means the graphics card is getting more of the incoming air. If your psu fan is not spinning, try switching the psu cooling switch to normal - that way, your psu will not run in fanless mode - it will then be intaking air either in silent mode or active cooling mode. Set to normal or hybrid, it takes an ambient of 25c [77f] to spin the fan, so what heated air there may be is going to be far less than the front incoming cooler air. Also, that's a good reason right there to flip that psu so its fan does intake cooler air from beneath the case.
I take it that your case is desked - easier to keep clean, less dust and hairs and crud than when sitting on the floor.

To my way of thinking, the psu fan intake and vent exhaust is a separate entitiy in the pc case - there is no benefit of having the psu fan - an intake - pointing to the graphics card, other than aesthetics, imho.

That is a nice w/c build, esp if its the first. I just built my first w/c into a Switch, and I wish my buddy had allowed for putting water onto the graphics card. Nice !
Very clean, too - sleeving would only add to the looks, but that is a great looking build.

Thank you sir, in all it took me 3 1/2 days to do the whole thing, and yes this was my very first w/c build, I watched a lot of vids on youtube to see what was involved thumb.gif

I have the Seasonic x-850, and with a magnifier on the plug, I can see the difference between my Seasonic 8 pin and the newegg foto of the Corsair ax850.
Not that its proof, but I see a difference.
But agreed on the peripherals - different sockets/connectors arrangement between the Corsair ax850 and Seasonic x-850 models.
Trying to decide how to go on sleeving - pre-sleeved, pay the man Lutro0 when he's settled/working/comfortable, or .... \shudder/ - d.i.y.

I have something weird in my PSU. It's a Seasonic 460 W fanless, and it's been working fine aside the common static noise that sometimes appears and sometimes disappears. I have not done any modding or physical damage to my PSU, except possibly overloading it with my overclocked system. When doing some benches I keep hearing the PSU making the loud static noise (and once it shut the computer off on me, which is an obvious sign I need a PSU upgrade).

I plan to have it replaced by Seasonic for the static noise but when I took it out I noticed a lot of white stuff in the PSU. It looked like some white, sticky cream and they appeared to be in places where glue would be applied (so I'm guessing this could be the glue?). I haven't noticed this before on the PSU.

I've already gotten an RMA # from Seasonic for the static noise, so should I notify them of the sticky-white cream glue in the PSU? Would they still replace it for me if I didn't notify them?

When doing some benches I keep hearing the PSU making the loud static noise (and once it shut the computer off on me, which is an obvious sign I need a PSU upgrade).

Either way they are going to see it when they examine it for themselves, so really it doesn't matter if you tell them or not.
