    when I did the operation the computer was left unused for 1 month. 1 month!
    And the new fan has much higher airflow than the old one, so there is no risk of overheating. I've been running the psu with the new fan for a long time now. No issues so far.

    Hey. Going to buy a new PSU, my crappy Corsair VS550 was bought only for temporary use.
    In my country the EVGA Supernova GS550W is in a good price.
    Is it a good psu?

    In a quick read through on PSU's - I didn't see a mention of ripple, which you will not see under no load, but jumps out and bites you at say 75% lading or more. This matters! Sorry if I missed seeing it elsewhere, but it is an issue and easy to check with a meter, or better, a scope.

    MY PSU seem to be failing. Reboots under heavy load and boots with blank screen, only 1 white marker on screen. Need to shutdown power for SPU to restart computer.

    Ordered new one so hopefully problem will be fixed.

    There is good quality PSU and cheap ones. The prices should tell the story.
