2 out of 5 eggssilent means it might overheat

Pros: it's corsair and they have a good reputation so i will replace this with another corsair power supply.
but NOT anything that brags about being SILENT or QUIET.

Cons: it's corsair and they have a good reputation so i was quite disappointed.
it seems that they are using customers to replace in house quality control.
this power supply blew out my motherboard and i am hoping that it did not blow out my new graphics card also.
the graphics card has 1152 cuda cores and 4 gigs of ddr5.
but i have to wait till i get a new mother board and power supply to find out since this old machine i am using now is certainly not going to support a graphics card like that for even a short test run.
so we will see.
i suppose it is too late to get an rma number, and even if i did i would not want another one of these, i would prefer to have the money applied to a corsair power supply that claims to be loud as hell but reliable.
and yes i am going to buy another corsair PSU.

Other Thoughts: i was quite disappointed with what happened and have spent several hours, 6 or more looking around at the negative comments on other products. mother boards, graphics cards and other components.
it seems that there is a trend towards shoddy quality control across all types of computer components, not just corsair.

so my idea is to look at the negative reports and see if the company is doing more than just making some sympathetic reply in the comments area to people.
many of the negative comments you will see include descriptions of long drawn out back and forth involving people who bought new parts getting used and damaged and even DOA parts in return for items that they paid full price for.
sometimes several times in a row.

so i have read the negative comments here and decided that even though i am expected to replace quality control for this company, i just might get treated with respect once i have found a faulty device.

so 2 eggs instead of one.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great PSU. My NVidia GTX 650 ti wasn't getting enough from my old PSU, so I decided to buy a cheap 650W 80 + bronze PSU. This came up and I decided to buy. It really works great. I think all corsair PSUs are good quality.

Cons: Wish it was modular.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after a few months

Pros: Well it worked fine for a bit with no problems.

Cons: While playing World of Warcraft the computer completely shut off. Could not figure out why it wouldn't turn on. After getting some other upgrades I found out when testing an old motherboard it wouldn't even work. Came to the conclusion the psu died. Plugging in an older one seemed to do the trick. Very disappointed.

2 out of 5 eggsCaught fire and destroyed SSD

Pros: Ran for 4.5 years without a hitch. Quiet operation and plenty of power connectors.

I have another one of these in my main gaming rig, and it works without issue.

Even though I had a defective unit and lost some equipment, the PSU itself was covered under warranty.

Corsair express RMA process went smoothly. They put a $50 hold on your credit/debit card, give you a prepaid shipping label to return the bad PSU, and then immediately ship you a replacement. They only charge the card if they don't receive the bad PSU within 10 business days (2 weeks). And even then, if they receive it after that time, they issue a refund.

2 eggs for the warranty, and Corsair customer service. Also, the performance for the money you get is pretty good.

Cons: Two pins from a SATA power connector shorted out and got hot enough to cause a small fire during boot, which destroyed a cheap SSD.

The protection circuitry is supposed to prevent this sort of thing. I'm just lucky it was just an SSD and not the whole motherboard.

Other Thoughts: This early model was manufactured by Channel Well, a notoriously bad manufacturer. The newer V2 model is manufactured by Seasonic, one of the best manufacturers of PSUs. If you are going to buy, get the 650TX V2 (newegg Item=N82E16817139020).
