  1. Buzzing is normal for PSUs, even if it didn't buzz audibly before.
  2. You know VGA stands for Video Graphics Array, right? And that your currently plugged PCIe cables are plugged into VGA2? If it wouldn't work, what else would the cables be for? Sure, that's how you're supposed to plug it.
  3. In your hand you're holding a cable with two connectors on one end (a 6pin and a 6+2pin), and one connector on the other end (8pin), currently plugged into your PSU. Your power supply comes with three cables like this. You're holding one of them right now, so you have two more cables exactly like that one. Take one of those identical cables, and plug it exactly the same as the cable you're holding. Which means you plug the end with the one 8pin connector to the PSU (to the VGA3 slot next to the current one), and on the other end there's one 6pin and one 6+2pin connector. So now you'll have two cables plugged to your PSU, each cable ending with two connectors; a 6pin and 6+2pin. Take one 6+2pin connectors each from both cables and shove them into your graphics card.
  4. Thank you Reza, that's interesting. They're definitely doing some assembly there. Maybe they build some of their power supply series in their own factory, licensing other companies' designs. If you want, you can take a photo of the label on your particular power supply, so we can see if it says "Made in China" or "Made in Iran" anywhere on it in your case.
  5. Hi Reza, welcome to the forums. Your Iranian brand Green doesn't create power supplies, as you described it. They only rebrand them, which means they do something the majority of PSU brands do, international and local alike: they buy an off-the-shelf, ready power supply from the true manufacturer, and they just put their own Green label on it. For example, the Green GP1200B-OCDG from your link is simply a High Power Astro PT 1200W power supply, manufactured by Sirfa Electronic in Dongguan, China. The company Green made an order with them to buy lots of their Astro PT 1200W units, but with Green's sticker and colours. Likewise, their HP Plus series (Green GP500B-HP+, GP600B-HP+, and GP700B-HP+) is just a stock Sirfa HPM platform, used in High Power Astro Lite series. (High Power is Sirfa's brand.) You can get the same product from many other brands, like Rosewill Photon 550-750W, SilentiumPC Supremo M1 Gold, Zalman EBT 650-750W, and so on. For their other power supply series they also use PSUs made by other companies, not just Sirfa: Channel Well Technology, HEC, and so on. All of those manufacturers are also used by many popular brands, like Corsair, Thermaltake or EVGA. I didn't look into it, it's most likely the same story with their coolers and cases - they simply buy ready products made by OEM manufacturers in China and put their name on them. You can still feel good about your local brand though, because they choose to rebrand and resell very good products.
  6. Um, those connectors are literally labelled with text over/under them. The color guide you're asking for is as straightforward as it can be:
  7. Thanks to the freedom of PSU-side cable connectors, manufacturers are free to add enhancements like extra vsense wires for tighter voltage regulation, interesting connector shapes like Super Flower's "cube connectors" or the 4-5pin DIN connectors like on PCPower&Cooling Silencer MKIII, LED lights like on EVGA G2L, or universal EPS/PEG/SATA/Perif connectors like on SilentiumPC's E-Plug system. For those reasons I think it's a good thing the connectors aren't required to follow some downgraded standard with no room for manufacturer's improvements.
  8. The difference is the new 750W and 850W versions are 160mm in length, while the original ones are 180mm. (Except the original 550W and 650W, because those were always 160mm too) The new 750W also has two EPS connectors. I think you can also see the difference by looking at model numbers, the original RMx units were RPS0014 / CP-9020090 for RM550x, and RPS0015 / CP-9020091, RPS0016 / CP-9020092, RPS0017 / CP-9020093 and RPS0018 / CP-9020094 for the rest, so if your RMx has higher numbers than those then it's probably the refreshed version. It might have been manufactured in 2017, but they appeared on the market in 2018.
  9. Then the relay is in the bottom right here, next to the PFC coil: (Both the original RMx and the 2018 RMx have the same identical black/white labels, by the way)
  10. Most of higher end PSUs have an electromechanical relay nearby the NTC thermistor, which bypasses it from the bulk capacitors when they charge on startup. The thermistor limits inrush current to the capacitors during startup, but isn't useful once they're charged, so the relay disconnects it for the remainder of the PSU's operation. When shutting down, the same relay reconnects the NTC thermistor back, so it can limit inrush current again during another startup. This practice has been in place for a really long time, as early as 80+ Gold PSUs appeared, but maybe even earlier. It's not present in all high-efficiency power supplies even today though, some units don't have the relay. Which Corsair do you have, RMx or the shorter and newer RMx 2018?
  11. That PSU would certainly supply wrong voltage to the connected parts, damaging them over time.
  12. Is it really better for you to pay $70 for PSU + $100 shipping it from Amazon, than buying a PSU locally?
  13. Post links to your online stores you can use as well, because we don't know what's available for you.
  14. Yeah, it's not good. thats becuase the power supply is so old it predates the current rating system. Basically the power supply should be throw away not sold. What do you mean "it predates the current rating system"? The unit is from 2015. Both 80Plus Standard and 80Plus Standard 230V certificates existed for plenty of time before this PSU launched.
  15. It's impossible for us to help for not one reason, but two. Not only is "Zalman 600w 80 Plus Gold" about as accurate as saying "nVidia 4GB graphics card", but also Zalman doesn't sell ANY 600W 80+ Gold PSU.
