Summary: Maybe people are just getting dumber, but when you look at the reviews for Corsair's older stuff and compare it to the new, it worries me.
Pros: Everything. I've had this power supply for almost 6 years now and haven't had a single problem with it. It has been through multiple builds without issue. Thank you (JonnyGURU) for recommending it.
Summary: Thank you Corsair for a solid PSU. One year longer than warranty.
Pros: It worked solidly for 6 years through two PC builds. Never made strange noises and always had enough juice for my 560Ti and other components. Glad I got it and am going Corsair again because of this.
Pros: I absolutely love this power supply. Even after three years it handles 400-500W of load without undervoltages, low current or dirty power. Excellent construction Top notch customer support Great packaging Excellent engineering
Cons: After only 2 years of use this second one started to sound like a Meat Grinder. High Frequency Noise also a negative. Probably a bad Bearing in the Fan and component in the PSU. Changing to another Brand.
Summary: The unit does perform well. I believe I simply hit an unlucky card and was given a dud. More than the failing unit (which is still functioning, just with the whine of that Cap making me wonder of its lifetime) it's the methods of Corsair that bug at me. Hence this unit gets 4 eggs.
Pros: Seemingly sturdy design, plenty of power for the rig I'd planned, quiet fan, mail-in rebate was nice.
Cons: It is still working, however very shortly after installing it the unit, it developed the distinctive whine/ring of a failing capacitor. Given that Corsair wanted quite a bit of cash for me to ship it back for a replacement (cash that I did not and do not have), I haven't been able to take them up...
Summary: After 3 1/2 years of heavy use it failed. You would think I would be upset or angry, but no. I felt I got good use out of it and I think it was the heavy use that made it fail. Like one review said it's too expensive to send it in so I got a replacement and hopefully it will last until I go to the...
Pros: Inexpensive and it seems to be a good unit. Quiet and was very reliable up until a couple of days ago.
Cons: None really. It was an excellent unit while it lasted.
