PSU Swap Question

 Share

So my Corsair AX1200i died :( it was way more PSU than I needed, but there isn't much out there to choose from right now. I picked up a Corsair RM 650 to replace it. My question is... Do I need to rewire with the new PSU wires? Or can I just throw the RM650 in there and call it a day with the old ones? They're already neatly cable managed... I'd prefer to not have to do that again.

 

Thanks in advance

You will kill the motherboard.

Corsair has this very handy compatibility chart

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

Trash beauty:

Xeon X5550RX 570 4GB (defective) -Fattydove Racing 240GB - WD Blue 320GBHP Z400 - 6x2GB DDR3 1066 - EVGA 450W3

 

How many watts do I needATX 3.0 & PCIe 5.0 spec, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

 That's all I needed to know. Thank you for the short concise answer.

it appears to be an incomplete answer.

 

Here is the compatibility for the AXi:

Here is the RM:

As seen by the color coded orange and red squares, you are able to use almost all the same cables with these units, aside from the 24 pin connector. (they're supposed to be dots and not squares, but the webpage didn't load correctly for me.) You only need to replace the 24 pin connector to the motherboard.
