    jonnyGURU got a reaction from Gorilla Warfare in Is cx450 enough to run 980ti   
    The differences between CX, CX-M and CX-F were explained to you very early on in your thread.
     
    It's frustrating because we have over three pages of you throwing out different models, suggestions were made and you went with what is arguably the worst option.  Not a terrible PSU, but not even close to anything anyone ever suggested.

    jonnyGURU got a reaction from seon123 in RTX 3070 Ti getting shutdowns with Seasonic Focus GX-750 (Mfg. date Oct 2020)   
    I don't think anyone ever confirmed this.  Maybe with the Vega issue, but I've seen post-2018 Seasonic PSUs still shut down with Ampere even when the load is well under the OPP threshold.

    Try not turning the PSU switch off in the first place, or waiting a while after turning it on before powering the PC up.

    Given that Japanese capacitors are actually Chinese, that shouldn't be a surprise.

    jonnyGURU got a reaction from Gorilla Warfare in Corsair CV650 or Cooler Master MWE v2 bronze 650 or Thermaltake Smart RGB 600 or LINKWORLD LW-750B or Thermaltake Litepower RGB 650 ?   
    The two Thermaltakes and Linkworld shouldn't even be a consideration.

    Yeah. Though really it's more the card to blame than anything.  The power management on Ampere is horrible.
     
    And it's not transient spikes tripping OPP.  People keep saying that, but I don't know where that rumor started.  I mean, it's not a bad guess, 
     
    The problem that was observed is that under high loads, the ampere cards actually feeds noise back to the PSU.  The PSU sees this noise as a fault and shuts down.  Depending on the design of the PSU, this noise can be filtered out.  I've even seen some OEMs do something as simple as putting a ferrite bead on the +12V sense lead.  For most Seasonic users, I just tell them to remove (cut, de-populate, whatever) the +12V sense wire from the 24-pin cable and everything rights itself.

    That might not have been it.  I'm friends with the CableMod guys.  But I can also see how end users can see "missing pins" as "wrong cables" and freak out. Sense wires are good, no doubt.  But they're usually not necessary.  But you need a freaking novel to explain that to people and the average intelligence of the average PC builder has lowered considerably over the last 10 years, so there's that problem as well....

    jonnyGURU reacted to suedseefrucht in Choice between 3 PSUs or maybe a whole different one?   
    All of them seem pretty good.
    Personally, I would go for the Dark Power 12 850 W because there are not many reviews about the other two. 
    The BeQuiet one is a multy-rail one. So it should be safer than single-rail power supplies.

    Oh... That doesn't mean anything.  Definitely don't use it.

    Got the Gamdias Krapos M1 here.  It's terrible.  Yes, we know it's DF with group regulation, but the SR uses Schottky diodes instead of MOSFETs.  Going to blow it up on the Chroma as soon as I get a chance.

    Not that I have any love for EVGA, but HEC is perfectly capable of making a Tier A PSU and there's nothing  wrong with Teapo capacitors in anything made in the last decade.

    jonnyGURU got a reaction from Illyaimi in UPS smells like shit   
    So, there's a number of things that can stink for quite a while inside the UPS until they can burn off.
     
    You have insulating varnish on the transformer, and the transformer in a UPS is really big.  You have room temperature curing RTV.  You have flux from the wave solder.
     
    If the battery is fully charged, it shouldn't be hot at all when plugged in and not running on battery.  Like your PC's PSU, the AC to DC converter's load for charging the battery is completely dependent on how much power it needs to convert.  Once the PSU is charged, the UPS really isn't doing much of anything.
     
    I have a fully charged APC 1000VA here next to me and as I touch the entire housing, every bit of it is only about +5°C above room temperature.

    jonnyGURU got a reaction from Gorilla Warfare in Installed new gpu (EVGA 3080) now have to power cycle psu to get to boot?   
    So it did that after POST or it did that instead of POST.  Remember:  POST comes first.  "BOOT" means it's on it's way into the OS.
     
    How are you shutting down when this happens?  Are you just shutting down from the OS and then it won't power back up again when you hit the power button on your case or are you actually turning off the power to the PSU every time you shut down?
     
    Although your PSU is garbage, I doubt (at least at this juncture) that it's the problem.  And even if it was, getting an 850W is unnecessary.
    Do you have the newest (7D09v12) BIOS for your board?
     
    You'll note that MSI says it's for "improved VGA card compatability".

    AVR bucks low mains voltages and boosts low voltages.  Useless unless you're experiencing brown outs so severe that the (incandescent) lights in your house flicker and "brown out" (hence the term "brown out")
