Should I replace Corsair HX650 with 8 years?
 
Hi mates!
I have a Corsair HX650, bought 8 years ago (about 120€), that nowadays is still working correctly, or this I think.
The main thing is that I was wonderig if maybe 8 years are too much and now maybe it's not working correctly, but I don't know how to test this.

I've made the OCCT Power Supply test for 10 minutes and those are my values with Ryzen 2600, RTX2070, NVMe, SSD and HD.

https://i.ibb.co/j3Vm9DR/photo5927126659314593568.jpg

12v: IDLE 12.24v, FULL 12.16v.
5v: IDLE 5.15v, FULL 5.13v
3.3v: Between 3.345 to 3.375, most time on 3.364v

Are those graphs correctly? Should I start thinking about replacing it?

The thing is that one user told me, on another forum, that an 8 years PSU has its condensators completly out and I should think about replacing it, and that a good psu offers a less than 0,01v variation...

So... what do you think?

Thanks!

Its a group regulated unit so yes replace it

Sorry, could you explain me a little more? I didn't understand your answer.

Thanks!! :)

Group regulated means that the 12v the 5v and the 3,3v rail are treated as one big group instead of each rail being independently regulated
Group regulated means poor voltage regulation which means less stability

Your PSU if you have the bronze rated HX650 is either a Seasonic S12II or an M12II cant recall which but both are group regulated which mean poor voltage regulation

Man I have the same PSU and I am also wondering if I need to replace it. I guess I need to replace it too.

Thanks! Now I understand, and also I've searched about C6 and C7 states and "Haswell Ready" PSU.
I've had this PSU with a 4790K for 5 years and my GPU (980ti) died.... maybe it was about this problem, I'll never now, but now I'm thinking about changing it.

Thanks for your advice!

The Seasonic Focus Plus or a Prime Ultra are both good options

+1 for seasonic, their warranty is fantastic.

Thanks you again!
I was already looking at it, but then i didn't found it on the FAQ about recomended PSU's... https://www.overclock.net/forum/31-p...#user_500-599W

For 99€ do you think it's a good deal the 650W Fully Modular version? https://www.pccomponentes.com/season...s-gold-modular

Thanks ;)

Interesting..

I have a Corsair AX850 that I bought in 2012 and the thought of replacing it hasn't even crossed my mind..
