Don't recommend this one, had the 650w version blew on me, evga super nova …Don't recommend this one, had the 650w version blew on me, evga super nova g2 all the way now



Funny you should say that. I've got the 850w version after the Evga Super Nova I had blew on me after less than 2 years use.

Classic cases of ymmv, consequential perceptions and me now considering Evga PSU to be POS that I'd never buy again.

But, as @rp7122 points out, any PSU can blow so becoming brand-averse on the basis of ones own misfortune isn't necessarily supportable by % failure rates.

So, your Corsairphobia and my Evgaphobia is unlikely to be supported by the Mean Time Between Failures figures but it'll make zero difference to our experience-driven perceptions and future buying choices.

Well as long as it didn't take the rest of the system with it then the PSU did its job even though it did fail, any PSU can fail just the ones with bad protections that take the rest of the system with it (although even the best PSU can't still take a out the rest of the system just a lot less likely). But the G2 is a good PSU too just a shame they cheaped out a bit on the G3

I recently got this. It's really noisy. The fans are not quiet.

I have the 1000i version and the fans don't turn on until least 55c

Yeah to be fair I am exactly the same with HDDs only ever had one Seagate drive die on me but I still avoid them despite knowing that their failure rate is no higher than anyone else's and obviously it wasn't my fault I didn't backup that drive ;(.

I've had the 650w version in a media PC for over 3 years running pretty much all the time and had no issues

I bought a PSU from them in March. The Leadex III, it was shipped via Overclockers with their invoice in it. Was strange, they must subcontract some hardware out.


currys.co.uk/gbu…tml




It says on that page, shipped by an approved supplier. This deal doesn't have that but I thought it was worth noting for future ref.

No, I needed a psu asap, so got a new psu and refunded it (been through corsair rma after for an rgb controller though, was great)

Yeah did research on the g3, so went with the g2 on that basis, and yes my pc is fine

Yep but I've had more problems with corsair I'd presume

I would second this recommendation, I have the rm750i which is the grade up and has improved heat management and won't spin fans up until it needs to, you can even set custom curves. It also has the benefit of Corsair link if you want to connect it to MB for monitoring and further control. Component breakdowns of the model up have also shown to have an evolved layout.

I managed to nab the rm750i for £120 a few months back, if you can get that version for a £20 difference I would say it's worth it.

After looking through many many reviews aswell the crux of the Corsair supplies comes down to the modular cables being quite stiff and unmanageable and they adopted to put some sort of fuse down the wires aswell which other supplies may not have. Other than that if you trust Corsair and haven't been burned by an unlucky experience then I give a big thumbs up.

I’m quite shocked to see some of the comments about how bad this is. I’m using the 750w gold and had it around end of 2017 been running fine since. Wouldn’t even think it was on. Don’t even hear it even if it did make a noise. Was running R9 290x back in 2017 with 6600k. Now Ryzen 1700 overclocked to 3.8GHz with 1660ti mild overclock. Happy to say never had an issue yet. Also heat added for the price

Corsair are good on their RMA's. You have to pay postage but they'll pre-agree replacement before you send. I have had a refurb tx750m as a replacement. The original tx750 was considered a good unit. I can't comment I bought on eBay and it came with coil whine so I got in touch with the RMA programme
This is a really good psu, jonnyguru review gave it a 9.3. I managed to bag the 850w version pre lock down for the same price from curry's. Rock solid so far and very quiet / silent. Warranty length is a reasonable way to infer quality so being 10 years you know it should last.
My RM850 blew up on me this morning :-(
Rule #1 of PSU's, some will inevitably fail, doesnt mean its a bad power supply. A lot of it depends on placement/usage as well. If you are buying a quality PSU from the likes of Corsair/EVGA/Seasonic and you install and maintain it correctly, 99.9% of the time they will last years.
Had one of these installed for three years. It has worked perfectly throughout and will continue to do so. I'm pretty sure I paid an awful lot less than this.

In what sense did it blow up? A loud bang?

Exactly, there are so many variables that could result in a dead PSU. Obviously some will just fail but its a bit like driving over a nail, getting a flat tyre, and blaming GoodYear
Finally fitted all my bits together the other day...

Is it just me or does anyone else's unit 'click' when switching on/off? It's probably slightly more audible when shutting down.

Yeah mine clicks quite audibly, like a relay. Had another psu that does the same. I don't mind as its by design.
