CORSAIR CX-M series CX500M 500W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Modular Power Supply

1 out of 5 eggs Blew and caught my PC on fire!!! 08/15/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR CX-M series CX500M 500W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Modular Power Supply

Pros: Design, price, looks

Cons: I've had this power supply in my newly built non-gaming basic setup PC for about 2 months now and it ran with no problems. Today while I was on the phone and the PC was idle, it burst into flames. It burned up my [Plextor] DVD player power cable until it totally melted and caught fire before blowing the power supply and who knows what else. I would figure a direct short would take out a fuse long before the house burned down (good thing I was home and it didn't!). I have NEVER had anything like this happen to me or anyone I know before. What gives here? Now I have to spend hundreds more trying to rebuild my PC again. I will NOT be buying this same power supply!!!

Other Thoughts: No external fusing. What is the internal fuse, 50 amps?!?!
