@sunzoo888, I like your solution. But when buying, I plan to buy some module cables, because I expect that the cables that come with the power supply are too long and too hard, so I want to know PCI-E 8PIN or CPU 8PIN, which one is connected Small board

@yushi_pan, I am not sure I answer your question but the stock cables that came with the power supply were pretty good. I managed to fit them into the space between the Corsair and the existing frame inside the Core x with lots of space for ventilation. I would suggest getting the corsair and fitting in first, then you can see after whether you need to replace the cables.

This PSU also fits.  Right side up, things line up well, but the fan is on the wrong side.  Upside down, you have to do some clever stuff, and you don't have access to the power switch, but the fan is then on the correct side.  1000 watts.

Hey all, I'm new to this site/forum but I wanted to add some things from my side after I just modified my Razer Core X by replacing the PSU and the Fan.

So first I replaced the 120mm fan and then I realised that the PSU fan is making some noise so I was thinking of replacing the PSU and then on Friday evening the PSU basically blew up and switched off the power on 2 levels of my house 😀

I stripped everything out of the Razer Core X and opened up the PSU to see if I could find the problem. When I tried to switch on the PSU (knowing it would trip the Electricity main fuse) it made a blue flash from the switch area and that was that... Obviously I only tried this once and I do not recommend it to anyone as it is potentially dangerous if you don't understand exactly how things are working with electricity. So I decided to try to find a PSU that would fit 1-to-1 with the original and started an hour long search on Amazon.de

I measured dimensions of 150 x 140 x 86mm and checked the position of the Mains socket and On/Off switch as well as the cable protrusion. After some time i narrowed down my search to the Corsair TX650M with a price tag of 93 Euros. I wasn't really interested in getting a PSU with a higher power rating as I don't intend to buy anything better than the current GFX card in there which is a Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080Ti with 11GB DDR5. So I ordered that PSU and it arrived the next day which was Saturday 13.11.2021). I started to look at fitting the PSU into the PSU space of the Core X case and found immediately that the On/Off switch was half covered by the case, so the original hole for the Mains socket and switch was not wide enough. This was the only issue and I proceeded to modify the hole using a Dremmel drill with a small cutter attachment and within 30 mins I had the hole done and looking pretty good (no unnecessary damage to the area around it).  I want to post this as a build with all the photos because My Razer Core X is now working perfectly and very quietly with the GTX 1080Ti inside it and with the new Corsair TX650M PSU and Noctua Fan.

I just have to find out now how I can post my build with photos on here...
