5 years and still going strong!

Anonymous, Newegg
25 November 2015
  • Pros: 950 watts. Plenty for most PC's Lots of connections. Pretty case. Very well packaged, while I'm thinking about it.
  • Cons: Since it is not modular and it has a lot of connections, you need to find a way to store all that extra wiring out of the way.

Short life

JOSEPH M., Newegg
19 August 2015
  • 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.

It won't die.

Joseph D., Newegg
15 December 2014
  • Summary: I wish it was still available for purchase.
  • Pros: It has good power output and has survived everything i've thrown at it since 2009. It's now almost 2015
  • Cons: It's got enough cables to be called a Kraken, and they're stiff.

Too Many Cords

Julian A., Newegg
1 November 2013
  • Pros: Works flawlessly
  • Cons: So many cables at least I have the huge Thor V2 case so I can deal with them, but I couldn't imagine this thing in a medium sized tower

long lasting PSU, shame it's discontinued

Joseph L., Newegg
23 May 2013
  • 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.)
  • Cons: not modular, discontinued on newegg.

3 years of Solid Performance

Michael F., Newegg
13 May 2013
  • 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...
  • Cons: none

Went out in a puff of smoke after ONE DAY!!!

Lev P., Newegg
20 January 2013
  • 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: Lot of connectors and great reputation.
  • Cons: Smells really bad when burns.

Not that great of a psu

Tyler S., Newegg
23 November 2012
  • 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

Failing after less than a year

Justin R., Newegg
24 August 2012
  • Summary: Currently trying to get it replaced by Newegg. Very unimpressed with Corsair.
  • Pros: No noise issues, worked fine for about 8 months.
  • Cons: Had the power supply for under a year. Computer is now showing signs of a failing power supply. I'm worried that if I keep this thing running any longer, it will fry one of my components.
