Summary: I've never been sensitive to fan noise but I don't like how Corsair rigged this fan. It's off at low load but moderate to high loads it spins up way more than necessary. There is no switch to control the fan. Add one of those and this would be a great PS.
Pros: Cheap for wattage, modular, Corsair has a good PSU reputation. No coil whine on mine. Appeared brand new, not a scratch on it, no dust.
Cons: Fan goes from 0 to 100 at moderate to high loads. Eventually spins down but is still loud. My test was with one 290, three hours of gaming, no headphones, case ~4 feet away.
Summary: Tempted to forgo the RMA just so I can have my new build up and running, however I know that would end up causing me more trouble down the road.
Pros: - Powers my new rig - Modular
Cons: While under load (3d games, stress tests) the PSU emits a loud clicking or buzzing noise. It doesn't actually seem to be coming from the fan, I tested and the fan can be spinning with no sound. It is more like a static noise coming from the coil. I can switch to a menu for a split second and the ...
Summary: i bought the corsair hx1050 80+ gold to power x2 gtx 780's in sli and my i7 2600k . i only had this power supply for one week before i returned it . the reason i returned it was because when ever i was gaming it got very loud it got so loud that i was scared some thing was wrong with it .
Summary: Maybe got a bad psu. This happens. Getting a new one soon hopefully.
Pros: This psu was awesome right out of the box. It looked cool felt cool and felt well built. Typical Corsair quality. Got it all hooked up, started up right away, had no problems what so ever untill...
Cons: Untill i got my graphics card. I'm running a very expensive and very high tech system. I trusted this PSU to power it and power it for a long time with no problems. The day I got my graphics card I went ahead and installed it. (correctly). I'm not a genius when it comes to computers but I know en...
Summary: Was great when it worked but is now just a paper weight and my 6 year old Thermaltake still works fine for a temp fix. Expected more than a single year of operation but oh well, learned my lesson
Pros: Good price, modular, power to spare, worked great out of the box
Cons: Only con is that I came home today and the power supply was fried, system would not start, and now I gotta get a new one and asap since I have work to do. Never had a Thermaltake power supply die on me so I guess it's time to switch back and not bother with Corsair anymore
Summary: ... I've tried to turn my new Radeon 7970 on by using the optional cables (modular) that came with this PSU. I had to skip using this cables and used the ones that are attached in the PSU, and only after that my 7970 worked.
Summary: Neither of these noise issues have any impact on the power delivery however the combination of these two issues is just beyond annoying. I replaced the unit with an Antec High Current Pro 850 and my computer has been running almost completely quiet ever since.
Pros: This is a good looking power supply and power is plentyful and rock solid.
Cons: The noise. This power supply starts out completely quiet (as advertised). Then two things happen that make it completely irritating. First, as the unit warms up it starts to cycle the fan in a "saw-tooth" pattern. The fan will spin up as fast as it can possibly go and then slows down to idle over...
Summary: Also lost a star because the first one I got the fan didn't work, had to RMA it.
Pros: Works great, very quiet
Cons: I wish it was fully modular, after I ordered this PSU, my friends PSU failed. His was fully modular, so he was able to pull his PSU when the new one came in and leave all his cabling in place. Makes me dread when the time comes, I don't want to redo cabling.
Summary: i have boughten alot ALOT of things with newegg. i have had some problems with newegg and shipping this isnt the first.. the first it took little over 2 weeks to get to me. and this wasnt even a back order item.
