These power supplies seem to have an issue where after a few months to a little over a year where they stop allowing the PC to be turned on unless the power cord is pulled for 1-2min.
My PSU ran for almost a year without issue. I turned off the PC to swap some HDDs around and it would not boot back up. The red 5v standby light on the mobo was not on.
It's been happening about 1/2 the time now when I turn it off and try to turn it back on.
It appears to be limited to the 1050 GS from what I've been reading.
I'll keep an eye on mine.
back when I bought mine EVGA recalled them for a overheating issue, I didn't have
mine installed yet so it was an easy swap for me but it was still a bummer to have to
ship it back for a new one.
I ordered an 850w GS awhile back. Lasted about a week and then it started having trouble powering on after being shut off unless I unplugged it and let it sit, sometimes I would have to wait several hours before I could get it to start again. I did 5 RMA's and every single unit I got would have the exact same issue after about a week. Reviews on newegg which were pretty much all positive when I first bought it from there now have several negative reviews complaining about the same issue http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2F84EF8674
I contacted EVGA several times by email and each time they refused to give me a refund and said that the units I sent back passed internal testing and all they could do was send me another unit. Started making a bit of a fuss over on the forums and found a few other people having the same issue. Finally decided to try and give support a call and complain to them instead of by email and they actually agreed to send me an 850w G2 to try. The G2 has been running in my system now for about 3 months with no issues.
Never buying an EVGA power supply again or recommending to anyone else.
