I've just bought a brand new Seasonic SS300-FS with active PFC.
Very satisfied with noise level I try to test it at major load running some heavy benchmarks (3dmark, etc. ).
After a while, my temp. monitor reported a case temperature unusually high.
So I open the case and check everything (with power still on) , first anomaly is that power supply case is mildly hot
Then I check the fan visually ... and to my horror it is deadly stopped
I turn off everything and try to turn on again the p.c. but the fan isn't running anymore...so turn off and wait for the cooling down.
Turn on after 10 mins or so, and the fan is still alive and kicking
Try again the benchmark and after few minutes again same behaviour
I wonder if they installed my thermistor with a negative control law
, since if the temp. raises the fan is stopped instead of being speeded up
Anyone sharing the same experience with Seasonic ?
