Ok, thanks for the info! I'll definitely make sure to setup some alerts. Thankfully I've never seen the board get nearly that hot. Definitely good to know they didn't use the sensors to actually protect the board.

On cooler master's website the mwe gold 650w doesn't have ocp, but in this review

https://tech4gamers.com/cooler-master-mwe-gold-650w-fully-modular-psu-overview/

the author says it has ocp

That's an unboxing, not a review.

It uses a single rail design so OCP isn't required on the 12v rail, instead relying on OPP.

It doesn't have OCP On 12V.

ON 5V and 3,3V its likely they do.

just bought an used hx750 platinum.

its making click noise when power on and shutdown. the click noise is like clicking a button

 

thats normal isn't it?

 

my old cx600 green never has this sound

the rmx750 is a single rail psu, why does it have ocp on the 12v rail?

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/corsair-rm750x-v2-psu,5585-6.html

79,94A*12,106V=968W. The OCP test just triggers OPP using the 12V rail.

That's an electromagnetic switch...

 

Totally normal with modern, good quality PSU (not all have that but many)

so a single rail psu without ocp is not a bad thing?

It is a bad thing. Single rail PSUs are a bad thing, except for when they are low wattage.

With the RMx, it can output all of its rated power on the 12V rail, so the OPP works as 12V OCP. But with PSUs that can't output all of their power on 12V, the protection just isn't there at all.

Yes. More resistance, more voltage drop.

 

Shit extensions are fire hazards. Decent ones should be safe, (assuming you aren't running a lot of current through them - like a high power GPU. If so, definitely no), but may cause your system to become unstable.

 

Don't use extensions. If you want funky cables, buy a full modular PSU and custom cables.

Just don't use them. 18 AWG is also fairly thin.

18AWG is fairly standard gauge for PSU cables. Only expensive high end units use 16AWG on EPS/PCIe...

Im going to get to the bottom of this tonight but I think my Corsair HX850 is shot.  I don't think its my R9 Fury and will eliminate that tonight.  If it is, then Ive already got my eyes set on Vega 64.

 

Im really disappointed (don't have my receipt maybe my Newegg invoice from 7 years ago will work) that the PSU didn't last longer.  Also been disappointed with other Corsair products lately so Id personally like to avoid them altogether.  Really not impressed with their price point versus ROI over the last few years (I think I spent over $150 iirc on this PSU)

 

Need suggestions (looking to spend less than $150 for sure) on a PSU to power for the next 4-5 years my R7 1700 and for a shorter time, 2x R9 Fury Tri-X Nitro's (once I replace my other GPU) in crossfire.

 

Doesn't matter to me if its modular, or semi modular but would prefer semi or modular - also, penny pincher so if a good non-modular is available at a nice pricepoint I wont mind as long as it can support Crossfire.

 

Any suggestions/models to keep in mind while I browse Newegg?

Where do single-rail units fall? Can that be deemed as a missing protection?

We are planning to remove high wattage single rail PSUs from the highest tiers.
