Summary: So amazing, I wish everything was as reliable as this PSU! I bought this PSU in Aug of 2007. It's been so stable and reliable that I haven't even thought about it in years. I had to come on newegg just to double check when it was purchased.
Summary: This PSU has and still is providing power thru 4 different builds dating back to the P4 era ( P4 1.8ghz, P4 3.0ghz, Intel C2Q Q6600 and now Intel 4670 OC'd to 4.1ghz). I would never have dreamed a PSU could be so reliable.
Pros: A very dependable PSU. Have had it running since it was introduced. It is running appx 20 hrs a day for years.
Pros: I have been running this PSU since March 2007 (7-1/2 years) across two different computer builds. This PSU is as Rock-Solid reliable today as it was when I first installed it. What more can you ask from your PSU?
Summary: When I bought this unit, the warranty was 5 years. Corsair has sinced bumped their HX warranties to 7 years, so hopefully I'm still covered. My friend is sending me his spare 620HX so I can keep using this model without having to buy a new PSU (and risk losing quality).
Pros: I've owned this PSU for 6 years now. It's never beeped, buzzed, clicked, or failed. I put it in my case (Antec P182) SIX YEARS AGO and it has worked flawlessly since day one, and every day since. Corsair and Seasonic truly assembled a masterpiece with this thing, I can safely say it's the best pi...
Cons: Wish more of the cables (or ALL of them) were modular. I've had to wrap some of them in twist-ties and shove them on-top of the unit to get them out of the way. Only 80% efficient; barely Bronze. But it came out in 2006-2007 so I can forgive it for that. At the time it was the best PSU ever made.
Summary: Upgraded to a new a rig. i5 Ivy Bridge Core with 16 gigs of Ram oc'd at 4.3 Ghz...Geforce GTX 560 superclocked bideo card and it's still running it without any problems for about a year now.
Pros: Bought this for a build in 2008 and it's still going strong after 5 years! Has the essential connectors to support even the newer video cards which require the additional power connectors. Has not failed through various power surges.
Summary: My best guess is that there might have been a screw rolling around loose inside the case. It might have hopped into the power supply during transport and shorted something out.
Pros: - Removable cabling means less unnecessary clutter in your case. - It died violently, but it protected the rest of my computer.
Cons: - After transporting my computer home from across town the power supply died violently. The 620HX made two LOUD electrical popping noises, along with some smoke and the smell of death. It even left a burned outline of one of its sides in the case. I was very worried that everything was going to b...
Pros: I'm on the high edge of this PSU's capacity and have been running it like that for over a year. It has never faltered. Nice and quiet. The guys over at [H]ardOCP recommended it, so I bought it and I do not regret it.
