Probably an exception to the rule

Zachary W., Newegg
18 April 2015
  • Summary: Fortunately Newegg is generous about returns. Already RMA'd a Rosewill capstone 750 eariler this month (preivously worked for 4 months) and now this. Next I'm going to try the Seasonic X650 Gold. My system only pulls about 350 W, so the smaller unit should still be all I need.
  • Pros: Beautiful load of wattage, semi-modular cable design. Semi-mod design included a 24-pin ATX that was easily adjustable to 20. It also had two PCIE cables in the default set. Probably a bonus for most people, but was not for me as I am currently using a single video card.
  • Cons: Dead withing 15 min of installation. Machine was able to post, but when I had everything connected, suddenly no-dice. Had to return it.

Died after 4 month

David H., Newegg
15 April 2015
  • Pros: Clean simple install, Cable management.
  • Cons: Worked great for 4 months unsure if the failure damaged other components in my rig but I do know the power supply is toast. Checked the smart ups logs and power was normal and did not receive an out side power surge. The failure appeared to come from the power supply itself.

little over 1 month then RMA

norman a., Newegg
12 April 2015
  • Summary: so after the whole RMA thing was finished and over 3 weeks waiting for it to ship out they were nice enough to show how much, i myself am appreciated by Corsair. They sent me a mouse pad for the time and trouble. So thanks corsair..
  • Pros: Yes Corsair are Pro's at making excuses on why my replacement did not ship. Customer service was great until they received the RMA psu. Then I was repeatedly lied to as to when my replacement will ship. (more info see cons)
  • Cons: First off let me state that this PSU is not fully modular. The 24 pin, CPU, and 2 pci-e 6+2 are hardwired into the psu. Second, if you do buy the refurbished unit get a extended warranty. I got this to replace my HX750 (which has a 7 year warranty) because I am running 2 R9 270x 4Ghz GDDR5 in cro...

Rebate scam

James W., Newegg
11 March 2015
  • Pros: It is a power supply as many in the market
  • Cons: Customer be aware. Corsair was advertising a $20 dollars rebate on this product when I bought it. In a market with so many other different choices of power supply, cost was a very important factor on choosing this product. After submitting all documentation required: invoice of original purchase,...

Powers my system, but has horrible coil whine

Blaine K., Newegg
8 March 2015
  • Summary: The noise is horrible. It is constantly buzzing and gets worse when vsync is off. At first I thought it was my video card because vsync was making it change, but after swapping it out with my older gtx 470, the problem was still there.
  • Pros: Cheap Powerful More cords then I would ever need.
  • Cons: Coil whine

Came with a faulty ATX connector

Nicholas G., Newegg
7 February 2015
  • Pros: Worked fantastically while it wasn't broken.
  • Cons: The one I got had a faulty ATX connector on it, so it would occasionally become disconnected and my PC would just shut off, and then I'd have to push on the cable a bunch to get it to make a connection again. I let it do that for about a week before I got fed up and RMA'd it. I get that it's refu...

DOA

Appraisal I., Newegg
6 February 2015
  • Pros: Nice looking
  • Cons: Had a problem with the build & took it to a tech. Spent $200 to find out the PS had an intermittent voltage problem. Otherwise the system fired properly for a few minutes. I am on a deadline for system upgrade at my business & unfortunately past 30 days. So not stuck buying another PS for the sak...

What a tragedy

Anonymous, Newegg
26 January 2015
  • Pros: It's quiet and packed enough power to handle my setup
  • Cons: After almost a year and a half with this PSU and it doing me well I recently upgraded to an i7 4790k and a new Asus z97 pro motherboard. I woke up this morning and accidentally hit one of the keys on my k70 and then I heard a loud pop from my computer. In the bios there is a setting that allows y...

Buzzing at high loads, avoid

JOHN M., Newegg
25 January 2015
  • Summary: If you don't like noise, don't risk it. Just look elsewhere.
  • Pros: OK price, easy install.
  • Cons: Buzzes loudly at high loads, like playing games or in Unreal Engine 4's editor. I got 2 replacements from Corsair, but they had the same problem.

Blew up

John T., Newegg
26 December 2014
  • Summary: Find something else to buy will never buy a corsair again
  • Pros: Had a nice number connections to suit any number of drives, cards, etc.
  • Cons: After 2 months of owning the card it suddenly made a loud pop and died. Unfortunately I can't replace it because it's been over a month. I had a old Roswell 650w that I replaced it with just goes to show how poorly made this psu is.
