I checked hardocp and their rating is not that great at all.

The XFX Pro Core and TX V2's are on the exact same Seasonic platform.

Well, none of the other reviews of the XFX Core 850W showed problems. Multiple reviews state that they're the same, and if you look at the pictures (aside from the heatsink color):





Actually, there is one significant difference. The fan on the XFX unit is configured to be 3-6 dB quieter under heavy load.

Does anyone have experience with XFX RMA? Are they generally bad? I know Corsair is excellent, but a decent customer service will serve me well.
