Pros: The PC turns on
Cons: Software is useless, Corsair are rude and unsupportive, 1200w PSU without suitable cables for quad-sli/quadfire
I've seen a lot of reports of loud coil whine from these. Mine does coil whine, and it's very irritating, however I suspect I have one of the quieter ones (or my hearing at the high end of the spectrum is less sensitive than some peoples) because it is generally tolerable as long as the side is on the case, however I brought it partially because it should be very quiet (at low loads, the fan doesn't run at all), so it's a shame when the fan is completely off and therefore totally silent that the peace and quiet I paid for is often ruined by the coil whine.
What on earth were they thinking making a 1200w PSU at the ludicrous end of the price spectrum, and not making provision for quad-SLI or quad-fire in the cabling? This comes with 3 PCIe outputs (with 2x 6+2 on each output) so three GPUs uses up all the PCIe power. Are people buying PSUs at this price really going to use MOLEX adapters? When it first came out, Corsair promised a neat, braided splitter so that one of the PCIe outputs could be split providing for 4 GPUs - I emailed them as instructed to request one of these, and was never replied to, which again about sums up the level of service that can be expected from these clowns.
