Don't fool me again please

Vern D. Jenkins "the tall guy", Amazon

  • Summary: Sometimes a computer build can be really frustrating, even when all the parts work. But when you finish an istall, hit that power button and nothing lights up or spins it can really scroll your nerd, to quote BC. I realize that sometimes a bad unit sneaks by inspection but I don't know why.

  • Pros: I like the way it looks. That's about all.
  • Cons: To date, this has been the worst PSU I have ever used. It failed on me catastrophically, producing disgusting fumes and possibly destroying my entire system. I am still investigating the damage. I considered the RMA route, but the cost of shipping is prohibitively high for such a cheap device, an...

Avoid this mistake!

  • Summary: Seeing so many of this particular model PSU available for sale as 'refurbs' should have been my warning NOT to buy this model for Corsair. Corsair must have their power supplies made by different manufacturers because this PSU does not have the reliability I've grown accustomed to expecting from...
  • Pros: Brand name manufacturer, its painted black and it fits like a glove in Corsair cases, price is right and it's quiet when it works. Excellent cable length.
  • Cons: Ran perfectly for 16 days, then it died. I buy almost exclusively Corsair power supplies and have never seen one fail until now. I typically buy the higher wattage PSUs, but this customer didn't want or need anything powerful. They only wanted a basic power supply for their modest computing needs...

DOA, incredibly bad connectors, $12 to ship back

KYLE W., Newegg
11 April 2015
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: The unit that came had possibly the worst fitting ATX connector I've ever seen. Where as another PSU unit could slip right in, this was so hard to put on it was looking like it was going to damage the motherboard if I applied anymore force. Once it did latch into place, it only spun the fans for ...

  • Summary: Loud Pop when we plugged up our computer and then nothing. Bought on sale for son's birthday when on sale for his custom build but unfortunately unable to return since it was more than a month since I bought. So Be SURE to use quickly and return if needed in a MONTH.

Below Average Power Supply

Christopher M., Newegg
3 March 2015
  • Summary: Would not recommend to anyone. I would ask for a refund, but now it's broken.
  • Pros: Price seemed right. Had the number of connectors I wanted for a build project and enough power output.
  • Cons: Snapped off clip on the main motherboard (24-pin) connector getting it to seat. I put more pressure on the connector to get it to seat than I ever have (and made sure that I braced the motherboard). In my 20+ years building computers, I have never seen a power supply with a connector fitment prob...
