My System Specs

Default AX1200i fan

After a couple of years of absence, first hi to all :)

My Corsair AX1200i psu get pretty hot and affects the temps of the rest of the system.
The fan almost never spins up due to the load in the psu being supposedly too low.
Is there a known way of making the fan work regardless of the load on the psu?
Thanks.

Default

first have the current firmware/software for Corsair AX1200i

try that first if not working then check warranty for RMA

if passed warranty when run a fan control on PSU fan

NOTE: remove power cord then start computer to drain power out of PSU before opening PSU
