Summary: I have a new one exactly this model in my home desktop. It is over a year old and working great. Seemed to be a quality unit so I purchased this refurbished one and upgraded my mother's computer to save her a little money.
Pros: Worked great for the warranty period. Looks pretty.
Cons: At the 119 day point it just quit. Purchased on from Newegg 12/9/14 and it died on 4/17/15. Verified by connecting a a 5 year old plus 350 watt PS up to the computer and turning it on. No warnings no anything it is just a non-functioning paperweight.
Summary: If it didnt have the coil whine I would have been very happy with it.
Pros: Steady power supply, supplied power efficiently
Cons: very bad coil whine. I bought a new GPU because I thought it was my GPU that had coil whine, when it turned out to be the PSU. I figured it out after the 1 month warranty was up, and I had to buy a new PSU. The coil whine was very loud and occured even when turned off, I had to cut the power to t...

Summary: works well and is quiet. (cannot hear it at all). my only complaint is that there is NOT a 4 pin connector for the motherboard --- Unless you split apart the 8pin! While this is great, it should be documented a bit more, like anywhere... I had to do alot of google searches to overcome this.
Excellent 140MM deep Power Supply. Cables a bit long for a ITX build, but would be perfect for mid-tower ATX's. Silent Fan.

Summary: So far so good. My only gripe is that the cable length is a bit long for a mITX case, but that's not necessarily the fault of Corsair given this PSU is designed for a wide array of ATX form factor cases. I love that the PSU is only 140MM in depth which made room for the GTX 980 in the Node 304 case.
Summary: For the record, I tried another Corsair power supply (ordered over my fiance's account with my card) to replace the one they just took back instead of replacing. This one was DOA, having been sent with an improperly manufactured 24 pin connector.
Pros: Turned on
Cons: Loud. Obscenely loud. I've been on propeller planes that were quieter than this fan. Returned the unit to ask for a replacement, got a refund to my card for the cost of the unit instead.
