RIP

Rafael A., Newegg
6 January 2015
  • Pros: Reliable and worked great for 2 years!
  • Cons: PSU died! After 2 years of use system would only power up intermittently. Thought it was a mobo issue even though it was 2 years old as well. Took it to a computer store where the technician found it to be the PSU. Normal life expectancy should be around 3-5 years from what I've read depending on...

Great PSU, while it worked...

Melissa M., Newegg

  • Pros: Really quite, worked like a charm... for about a month.
  • Cons: It worked just fine easy peasy until about a month. My computer would randomly freeze and when I turned the computer off, it wouldn't turn back on. The computer would then not turn on for a few days at least and now it doesn't even turn on. Corsair's customer support wasn't any help either. I mad...

DOA, but seemed nice

Nicholas C., Newegg
20 June 2013
  • Summary: I've submitted an RMA for a refund. I don't have time to wait for a new one to make its way from newegg, so I have to buy one from the local big box store. I won't be buying Corsair.
  • Pros: I liked the modular setup, the fan seems to be very powerful for the brief seconds it ran.
  • Cons: This power supply was basically dead out of the box. I plugged it in, turned it on, and it ran for maybe 3 seconds before shutting off. It never started again.

Disappointed!

Donald G., Newegg
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Overall it's a great product I'm sure. It's hard to go wrong with a Corsair PSU. If you do though, cross your fingers and hope you don't end up like me!
  • Pros: Its a great looking product! It has modular cables which keeps your case looking tip top. Has ample power for the money, and is gold rated.
  • Cons: The PSU I purchased will randomly shut off without warning. All appropriate checks have been done to verify that the problem is the PSU. Just a faulty device I guess! They make so many of these things someone has to get a lemon. The problem is that the PSU didn't start acting up until after the n...
