Summary: I just wanted to throw my two cents in. I've had this psu installed for a bit over a month now and have been extremely happy with it. It's quiet and has chugged through everything I've asked of it no questions asked.
Summary: I used this power supply for my very first gaming PC build, and I couldn't be more impressed with how well this item is built. I was expecting the same cheap, lightweight feel that I had experienced while swapping out my "off the shelf" PC power supplies, but this thing is substantial when you remove it from the box. As soon as you unwrap the TX650 and remove it from the packaging, you know you are holding a quality product.
Summary: İ bought this power supply unit about a month ago and it still works without any problems. Before I purchased it I was rummaging in the internet forums a long time and then made this choice. For those who want their computer to run long and reliably need to purchase high-quality power supplies from reputable manufacturers. One of these is Corsair. Above all it is noiseless, with a nice 14 inch fan and it is easy to install. Most importantly it is heavy.
Summary: This Power Supply Unit is a beast in providing your voltage and current effectively, but for most people, this beast will only output half of its advertised power output. On my custom desktop, this beast only outputs at most 400 W while playing GPU intensive video games; meanwhile, only around 60 W is used during browsing the internet and word processing. Around both times, the PSU noise is not noisy, as opposed to the CPU/GPU/Case fans.
First one was a dud, but second one is good so far

Summary: As the title mentions, the first PSU I purchased lasted about 2 (maybe 3) weeks. After that my computer would not turn on. Didn't have any kind of outages in my area either. I guess I just got a defective unit which happens when the company makes thousands of these things. So far so good with the second one, but only time will tell.
Summary: Got this PSU for my very first build and I am 100% happy with this product. I am running a Gigabyte 680 OC edition, ASRock Z77 Proffessional MoBo, Intel 2700K, 8GB G. Skillz 1600, Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer, Samsung 128GB SSD 830 series, and a Caviar Black 1Tb WD HDD, and this PSU has no problem at all. I would suggest this PSU to any first time or exp. builders!
Summary: I bought this power supply as a replacement for a slightly smaller 5 yr old working unit as a hedge against future problems. Upon receipt, examination revealed a sturdy well made product. I spent a long time doing the swap since both MB and video board had to come out to do the swap. After completion I was pleased that system booted and ran fine. 20 min later the system crashed. A reboot resulted in a second crash.
