Beware of power outages

Brandon M., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Summary: Is there a way I can RMA my power supply or exchange it for another one?
  • Pros: It is an decent power supply for gamers like me. SLI ready and it holds up good.
  • Cons: Apparently the Corsair HX850 does not like power surges and power outages. After about 5 months, it is now causing my system to power off unexpectantly and reboot.

Coil Whine

Nicholas P., Newegg
17 May 2015
  • Pros: Solid PSU
  • Cons: Coil whine kills it for me, 3rd day in and my PSU is screaming every time i play any game its extremely loud and i cannot find a fix. How does a power supply that cost so much have this problem?

Like the Mod. Received broken

Jessie G., Newegg
22 April 2015
  • Summary: Sad that this otherwise easy set-up and more powerful supply was broken. going to try and get a replacement or possibly a refund.
  • Pros: I have never owned a modular power supply. I love it. Installing was easy and the box itself is not too bulky. The modular option made cable management pretty easy I am a beginner at that sort of thing and while it was not the cleanest management ever, it looked way better than what I had before.
  • Cons: I unfortunately received a dud power supply. after rigorous trouble shooting it was determined and confirmed by others that the power supply simply was inoperable.

annoying whinning noise

Edward M., Newegg
22 April 2015
  • Pros: So far a very good and stable power supply except for the constant whining noise.
  • Cons: After about two weeks of use the power supply is now whining constantly and gets louder under load, very annoying and not acceptable. I would not recommend this PSU. I'm returning this one and trying a 850W EVGA.

Noisey

Caleigh D., Newegg
20 April 2015
  • Summary: Most probably defective.. and I have to suspect the shipping as it arrived with uninflated plastic padding surrounding the box -- not popped, it seems newegg just never inflated them :-/
  • Pros: Capable, solid build
  • Cons: Fan runs intermittently, but when it's on it sounded like a creaky bicycle. Additionally it made my speakers buzz while on (bad shielding?) in a way that my old Zalman 1KW did not. RMA'd and back to the Zalman for now.

Worked Great while it lasted

Carl D., Newegg
2 December 2014
  • Summary: I loved the PSU before it died. Might just be a dud or something.
  • Pros: I loved the shipping materials. The PSU was a bit hard to fit in my Thermaltake Armor case but it worked eventually. Was able to power my system.
  • Cons: None for 6 months. After 6 months the fan died in the PSU. No clue why.

SQUEEEEEEEE-

David P., Newegg
10 October 2014
  • Summary: Can someone please, please make a PSU with some decent QC. That's all I ask.
  • Pros: Very solid voltages Semi-modular Some cool extras in the box, like a carrying case (???)
  • Cons: I have owned two of these units now. The first one had terrible coil whine while at idle, and only at idle. When I booted up a game, the whine immediately stopped. That's pretty weird, so I RMA'd. The new one comes in and it whines WAY WORSE but only at load, and not at idle. I've never heard whi...
