Summary: Don't buy! Don't believe inflated Ads. Look for good long term customer reviews. I will in future buy another brand. I would not but another Corsair power supply because too many failures without reason.
Pros: Well known name. Second Corsair power supply to fail
Cons: Failed suddenly after 1.5 years work. No heavy work for power supply SSD, 3T HDD, Asus X9-DELUXE MOTHERBOARD rarely used. Failed while downloading Microsoft updates.
Pros: after 5 years, my PSU has given me no problems, aside from fitting the cables. This thing is a Kraken unleashed in my pc, and stillhandles an overclocked Vishera and 2 HD 7970's without heating much or making noise (or at least, no noise that can be heard over my GPU fans.)
Pros: Great PSU, great bang-for-the-buck equipment. Although it's not modular, I use all the trees anyway, so I get to bankroll the difference. Small size, quiet fan, single 12v rail with more than enough headroom for my G1.Assassin, i7 930, dual GTX570's and Coolit Freezone Elite, plus fans, fans, and...
Summary: I've had this PSU for about two years as a backup and have never really needed it till a day ago when I decided to put together a new system. The PSU has been running for a little less than 12 hours when suddenly the system completely shut down and there was a puff of smoke coming from the PSU.
Pros: It comes with a nice bag and I haven't had any noise issues.
Cons: I have had to RMA 2 of these in the past couple months. Its really frustrating when your gaming computer goes down for a couple weeks because of the long rma process and the $30 of shipping the defective psu back to corsair
