Volt Modding the Tagan Easycon 2Force PSU

Getting Inside

Over the past year, Tagan have make a name for themselfs in the power supply world for making solid, reliable units backed with excellent warrenties. Personally i've owned two, both of which have been great, but have also suffered with slightly low rail voltages. Most of the time, this isn't a problem as the voltages are well within the recommended 5%, but if you are planning on some harcore overclocking, the higher you can get those rails when the psu is under load, the better.

In this guide i will show you how to volt mod your Tagan Easycon 2force series Power supply. This guide may well work for other power supplies that share the same internals as the Tagan, so let me know your experiences.

Opening up a power supply unit is DANGEROUS and will void your warrenty. OC3D will not be held resposible for any issues that may occur as a result of following this guide.

Now that we've got that out of the way, lets get down to business.


Getting Inside

Its important to discharge any voltage held in the capacitors before opening up the PSU. This can be done by either unplugging the PSU from the mains, then attempting to turn your PC on, or following this guide on 'jumpstarting' your PSU.

Unscrew the 4 screws illustrated in the image below. One of them will be below a 'Warrenty void if removed' sticker.

Once you have lifted the cover off the unit you will need to disconnect the fan so that you can completely get the cover out of the way.
