    Agreed, Cosford.

    It was just really unfortunate and perhaps you need to look into the possibility of dirty power as stated above. Do you use a surge protector or anything of the likes? I've had Corsair RAM turn up with one DOA stick, it never threw me off of buying another Corsair product because DOA products happen, and Corsair are AWESHUM!
    Yes i do mate, and im not putting this down to dirty power or surges or spike for the simple reason nothing else so much as blew a fuse, nevermind go bang, and my OCZ have survived all these years, so putting this down to simple bad luck, anyway its on its way back now, just hope lightning dont strike twice, or il be the first to think its just me

      Have to agree to some extent. I have built several systems (and owned several more) this is the first one I have ever used a corsair power supply before and I have an intermittent problem with either the heat sensor or something similar which is causing the fan to spin up to 100% at random times for no reason - its not critical and otherwise it works fine, but anoying none the less.


      Its the first issue I have ever had with any power supply before inc cheapo generic ones.

      I guess its one of those things like anything, luck or whatever and Im sure in general corsair make very good psu's however if its the first time you have had one and its not perfect, its quite natural to to lose confidence in a brand.

        Tbh I lost faith in Corsair after the pile of junk I had from them blew out 2 4870s and 2 8800GTs (with video proof) and they completely refused to even cover return postage, which meant it would have cost less for a new one. Never buying anything from them again.

          Brands I've had bad experience with puts me off them. E.g I would never reccommend a Coolermaster power supply after one I had blew a motherboard, graphics card and a hard drive.

          Same with Corsair, after a friend had problems with her CX600 I wouldn't reccommend them again tbh.

            Everyone has had issue's with components regardless of Brand, I've heard of Seasonic X series PSU's failing, it happens its one of those things.

              The CX range. Not had any other experience with Corsair so it would be unfair to judge

                  Have built a total of 7 PC's with CX500's and 4 with CX430's in. One of the 500's went about 9 months down the line, but it's the only issues I've had with them.

                    Well this is my first hardware failure and the thing is i cant hold Corsair responsible, one would have to blame Seasonic, not all Corsair products are made by seasonic but the high end stuff seem to be, so i could say screw you corsair and then buy a XFX like i was going to, but hold on, they made by Seasonic too, was also going to get the Nxzt gold rate PSU but guess what, Seasonic make them too, everyone at some point has a bad experience, this was mine, i am slighty put off, but finger crossed the second one will live up to the reviews, plus 7 years of warranty is dam good and i still have my trusted old OCZ as back up

                        They have done if they have gone through the Corsair forum, plus free postage both ways, but i have sent mine back to Ebuyer, but yes had i gone thru the Corsair RMA service then i could well have got the 860i back, also worth noting, those that suffer with whining noise from your Corsair PSU, if you go to there forum and wait for the ramguy then he will make sure that when you get a replacement you wont get one back with the same problem, so it will be tested before it come back, have to say its worth a visit

                            I have to agree with that, and got that cover for up to seven years too, well worth the extra imo

                              I've had two 1200w pc power and cooling units go on me and a couple enermax iver tge yesrs but I will admit the two AX1200's I've got have been nothing but fantastic.

                              Things are just luck of the draw and the amount that these companies produce its sad but a couple bad ones do slip through...

                              I'd still buy the Cosair psus as personally theyare fantastic. I just wish they'd make a bigger 1500w unit...
