Summary: Really pleased with this PSU - easy to fit and very quiet in operation. Plenty of connector options and minimises bulky cable bundles in the case by selecting only those required at the time. Well packaged and very stylish. Shame such a stylish component is out of sight in the case.
Pros: It has served me solid for a few years now. I started to have a suspected low voltage on one of the leads and contacted their CS. Without hesitation they offered to replace the PSU. And their people were very responsive and very clear and helpful. I would recommend this company and anything they make to anyone and everyone.
Summary: So far it runs really quiet, I haven't even heard a fan turn on since I've installed it. Came with plenty of wiring, way more than I would ever need. Also the whining/squeaking sound people have been mentioning on the reviews, haven't materialized. So far I am very happy with the product, I'll post an update if that changes. Oh and according to the model number/packaging, this is the gold version.
Summary: I've had two of these - the first was great, the second would turn on for a half a second, then shut down. I went to the Corsair site, followed their instructions to perform a "paper clip test" (which the unit failed), then followed the on-site instructions for requesting an RMA number and returning the part, which I sent Fed-Ex, and which they received last Wednesday (the 2nd).
Cons: The chirping, squeaking noise. The fan on the PSU only runs when it gets hot enough but once hot enough it squeaks every few seconds. Very dissapointed and I can't believe I didn't notice this problem in the reviews. I thought a 7 year warranty meant it was great quality and the quality that Corsair is known for.
