Died after a month

Jonathan L., Newegg
3 March 2015
  • Summary: Currently using my, now antique, Thermaltake 430w PSU as a backup, which has been in 4 rigs through it's life. I would rate a bit higher because the RMA process was fairly simple, but my problem is that not only was the original PSU deemed "defective", then returned and "refurbished", but it is now...
  • Pros: LED color and change option was cool The intermittent fan was nice and quiet Had enough juice for what I needed
  • Cons: Died after a month of use. It first started cutting off after several hours, then fewer hours, then eventually about 10 minutes. Had to RMA it, and I'm still waiting for the "new" one to return.

  • Pros: ..
  • Cons: fan never turns on but I'm guessing that may be because it is not getting that hot.. one of the rails that powers sata will only work with one thing connected to it so I can only run one hard drive....

DOA

Anonymous, Newegg
15 January 2015
  • Summary: The return help that I got from customer service was good but buying this has been very annoying to deal with.
  • Pros: Long cords, cool blue led fan.
  • Cons: not modular leaving a bunch of unnecessary cords, also had to RMA it within the first day of opening the box. It shuts off after six seconds.

DOA

John G., Newegg
14 January 2015
  • Pros: Heavy. Looks nice. Lights up.
  • Cons: DOA. Powers on for an instant, then immediately shuts itself off. I'm back to my old PSU - and onboard video - until I can get a replacement. Note that other Corsair refurb PSU reviews show this to be a very common problem. Memo to Corsair management: selling dead PSUs is NOT the way you gain and...

PSU started to cut out and now it wont even start

cyrus, Amazon
24 December 2013
  • Summary: PSU worked great for the first few months, done the job and wasn't too loud either. Then randomly it would turn off, no BSOD, nothing. Eventually it just died and did not work at all.

Very poor design features

Mr. S. M. Morritt, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: In certain situations this can be the most annoying device imaginable. In normal use the PSU lays somewhere between quiet and silent, with plenty of connectors for all your devices and extra sockets should be wanting a dual SLI graphics setup. However, and it is (for me) a BIG however!

Dead after 3 mounths

Gerard M, Amazon
30 May 2013
  • Summary: I had previously left a good review but after running fine for three months my PSU has died. Two days ago it started cutting out for no reason and now it wont even start. It tries for a second or two then cuts out and tries again.
