Pros: Corsair tech support was great in the advanced RMA process and will be getting the HX650 in the mail sometime next week. When tech support called me back after I left a voicemail (only took a few hours) they told me that this is a known problem with this model and they stopped making them however there are already a lot out on the market, which is how I got unlucky and bought one.
Cons: This thing is a piece of junk, the "power saving" technology that turns the fan on at certain loads is garbage. whenever the fan tries to turn on it makes a loud buzzing/screeching sound. Furthermore the fan barely spins at first, spins back and forth extremely slow while making this buzzing noise, than when it finally starts going it stops making the noise, only to stop spinning again 5 seconds later and continue the process over again.
Also, because the issues with the PSU fan not working correctly the PSU gets way to hot while gaming, and about 15-30 minutes in it shuts down the power to my Graphics Card. Had to do a system reboot in order to get my monitor to receive signal from Gfx card because the PSU shut power off to it.
DO NOT BUY THIS POWER SUPPLY UNIT I WILL SAVE YOU SOME TIME AND TELL YOU RIGHT NOW YOU WILL NOT BE HAPPY.
