So I just built my new PC and I noticed my Corsair TX850M fan wasn't spinning at all. I was freaking till I read that these PSUs have a fanless mode when running at low power usage/cool temp.

My question how can I push my PSU to the max to make sure the fan is working? I tried running prime for an hour but that didn't do much.

For real, though, having a lot of peripherals will cause a higher power drain - using inefficient, older hard drives can use more power - MOLEX vs Sata power...

Not sure what else I could add to it.

PC Specs

GTX 670
Asrock Z77 Extreme3

I'm guessing the PSU is too OP for the rest of my specs to do much damage.

Even loading CPU and GPU to their max TDP, you're not likely to be using over 300-350W, so no, you're nowhere *close* to that PSU's maximum. Short of adding more power hungry components, I'm not sure how you could max your PSU out.
