    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.
