Summary: Bought this PSU 4 years ago and worked great until it completely died on me a few weeks ago. Plugged it into my PSU tester and the -5V rail is only thing thats bad. Since they have a 5 year warranty, I am going to try to see what Corsair customer service can do for me.
Pros: Long lasting, powerful, efficient, modular, quiet
Pros: Lots of modular cables. Good looking cables too, nice and flexible, probably perfect for sleeving too. Powersupply makes almost no noise at all and looks stylish for a powersupply. Fits great in my Cooler Master Storm Scout.
Cons: Only 2 PCIe 8pin connectors (native), so 2 GPUs might be a bit of a mastle to hook up.
Pros: Runs everything I need it to, and people say it's super efficient, so I guess it's solid.
Cons: Runs really hot. I put my hand next to this one and my friends power supply of a different brand and the temperature difference had to be around 10-20 degrees (Fahrenheit). I hope it hasn't been making my case too hot, but if it has, nothing bad has come of it.
Pros: Modular, sturdy construction, good color scheme, easily shapeable cables.
Cons: Price dropped significantly after I bought it to make room for the new HX PSU's. The rebate is taking a long time to process, and even if it comes, it's still more expensive than if I had waited another 4 weeks.
Summary: I just put together a new build with the PSU and it seems to work really well - no problems so far. When installed in a case with a bottom mount for the PSU be careful and cover the fan vent so screws don't accidently fall into the unit.
Pros: Modular, quiet, a bag to put all your unused cables is a nice. Three volt rails that can share the 50A between them was a good thing.
Cons: Cables are somewhat stiff. A bit more flexibility in the cables would be great. I ran out of connectors and had to use a normal power connector with SATA adaptors. This unit should include one more SATA cable with 3 connectors.

Pros: Стабильные выходные напряжения, APFC. Высокая мощность и КПД. Модульная система подключения кабелей. Качественная матовая покраска, прочный корпус.
