  1. The extension kit is made to add on to your existing cables. Unfortunately, very few cable modding groups have released sleeved cable kits to replace the defaults. Also, if you haven't had yours long, a heads up...that model seems to have the tendency to die in 6-12 months.
  2. If you aren't overclocking, you won't need to plug in the 4pin, only the 8pin. On the newer boards, the additional 4/8pin is for those shooting to OC their CPU above the standard 8pin 12v threshold. Just curious, what MB are you using?
  3. Mine died in 10 months. It is starting to appear the MWE series only has a 6-12 month lifespan. I am looking at a Corsair RM750x to replace my dead MWE 750 Gold. The worst part is CM seems to take a long time to respond to tickets...even outside of the COVID19 limited hours.
  4. Well it has been over a week and they haven't responded to my Support Ticket so I am just going to buy a different PSU. Got a response and RMA approved. Sending it off today.
  5. So yeah, long story short: old rig got stolen, built a new one. Chose a CM MC500P and CM MWE 750 Gold for the baseline. That was the end of July 2019. Here it is mid May 2020, and the MWE 2020 is shot. My system would turn off as soon as I would start anything that would cause high power draw...you would think 750W would be enough for a ASRock x470, Ryzen 5 2600X (no OC), and ASRock RX 590. I pretty much guessed bad PSU from the start, putting in an old Corsair 620 semi-modular unit helped me prove it. I opened a ticket on Wednesday, updated it yesterday. So I'm curious should I even bother with an RMA, especially with the number of issues the MWE series seems to be giving these days, or just buy a different PSU...maybe one with CableMod custom cable support. Thoughts/Suggestions?
  6. Currently I am running the 3x 140mm stock fans as intake with a single 120mm exhaust fan. I was thinking of getting a set of the MF140R Airflow fans, but at the same time wonder if there would be a better solution. Personally I would love fans that can inter-connect so I only have 1 header to go from the fans to my MB. The only 140mm set I have found to offer this are the InWin Crown ARGB fans. Anyway, the major reason behind this is my temps spike high while gaming...my ASRock RX 590 hitting 75C and Ryzen 5 2600X hitting 60C within minutes. I believe the lack of airflow (exhaust wise) could be the culprit. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
  7. I when my old system was stolen recently I started looking for my next one. I have never used Cooler Master, my previous case being a personally modified Thermaltake Overseer, so was going in blind. The case I chose, the MC500P, was a great choice for me because of the options it supports. My new build is very clean, with this case giving excellent cable management right out of the box. My first issue is I had originally wanted to mount my two Team Group Vulcan Z SSDs in view so that the RBG lighting would reflect off their chrome trim. I found this difficult, however, due to the positioning of the SSD trays on the PSU shroud. The PSU and SATA cables end up touching my motherboard when I tried to mount them in view, so I opted in the end to mound them behind the MB Tray. It would've been nicer to have a little more room, however, this is still a wonderful case. The second issue I have is one that any builder expects...the stock fans are okay but not great. I am still deciding on what I want to replace them with...the MF120R or the SF120R. I have the Hyper 212 Phantom Gaming with the SF120R and like the look...but they are difficult to find compared to the MF120R RGB kits. Not a big deal right now, just thinking about the future. So my rating on it is a definite 10/10. It has the functionality and looks I want.
  8. Just tried it...the answer is yes!
  9. Curious, can you directly connect the 12V RGB header on the SF120R RGB and control it through the RGB header on a motherboard? My board is the ASRock X470 Taichi, cooler is Hyper 212 Phantom Gaming. Thank you.
