Summary: This psu worked for an hour or 2 and then failed and fried my motherboard... Socket 1366 i havent even been able to find a board yet to test to see if it destroyed anything else. Might want to look elsewhere for a psu. My mind is blown as well cant believe this from Corsair :( UPDATE 5/20/2013: Finally replaced motherboard.... PSU fried both video cards as well.... motherboard = 250$ OS = 150$ ATI 6870 x2 = 500$ TOTAL = 900$ OUCH!!!!
Summary: Dead on arrival, and I don't live in the US which makes the warranty useless for me. I opened the unit and one of the two main capacitors had a leak, that's not something I would expect on a new power supply. I got it replaced but it wasn't enough. Not working yet. So I've an almost $200 paperweight, I would have expected that a cap leak would have been detected on QA, so if you have my luck you might get an useless power supply.
Summary: I am a Corsair fan, so it pains me to write this, as I just built a new system chock full of Corsair parts(Case, Fans, PSU(well, that was the plan anyway), CPU cooler, RAM). I put my new system together, and everything seemed to be working great, until no matter what I did the GPU was not being detected. As this is a modular supply, I tried both included power cables, and tried powering the card on both power modules on the PSU.
Corsair Professional Series Gold AX850 : l'avis de Linn Sondek
Linn Sondek, Audiofanzine

Excerpt: Bon, je n'irai pas par 4 chemin et compte tenu de mon expérience j'affirme que cette alim est une bouze. Je m'explique : en un an elle est tombé deux fois en panne! Alors Corsair assure et échange directement mais à 27€ de port à chaque fois pour la retourner la facture est salée... La panne est la même : l'alim, après mise en tension, met de plus en plus longtemps avant d'alimenter la carte mère et, donc, avant la mise en marche du PC.
