Ordered AX650, received HX1050 - Page 2

post #11 of 33
Thread Starter 
Amazon apologized for their mistake. The HX1050 is going back; the AX650 is on its way. I will keep/test the HX1050 till the other one arrives. I connected the HX1050 to a PSU tester, I do not like the way the fan sounds.
If this time i will get the HX1050, I WILL KEEP IT. I do not think they will do the same mistake twice.

THE AX650 GOLD ARRIVED AND EXPLODED while the pc was turned off.
Basically I decide to return the wrong PSU (HX1050), and I have got the one I have ordered.
It worked around 7 hours (not 7 years). I used it mainly for watching TV online. I turned the pc off and went to bed.
At 5 o'clock morning I jumped from bad because of a big explosion. I checked the pc, it was coming out smoke/smell of burn and the fuses tripped off (not the light side).
I removed the “GOLD†psu from the case, and gave a visual check inside through fan grill. I noticed the coil burned (the one with many copper wires). What it is amazing is that in the middle of the coil there is a plastic cable tie tightens the coil, I think. IT THIS SAFE?
Also the plastic foil has many dots of burn on it. It helped do not fall into the case…motherboard and other components.
I have not check the other components to see if are damaged. I have to attached the old PSU. I am warried only for the hdd, i have lot off stuff in it.
I was better off keeping the HX1050, it was working fine. I have to send it back.
I am afraid that if I will request a replacement, I will get other “BOMB†into my house.
Why Corsair do not go through high stress of this line of psu before put them on market? It happens to other guy with AX1200 too.
AX USERS WATCH OUT, KEEP THE KIDS FAR FROM PC IF YOU HAVE AN AX PSU.

Do you still have the HX1050? If you do I would probably hold off on sending it back until you get in contact with someone and figure this out. That's really strange though I would have never guessed a gold Corsair unit would just explode like that, maybe just a faulty unit. Also if you get another unit I really doubt it will explode like this one did and if it took out any components I hear Corsair is pretty good on replacing your parts.

Wow..
So the psu they sent you blew up, kinda ironic actually.
Anyways, get it situated asap so you can get you pc up and running, if not then just keep the 1050 and just adjust around it if it's too long*get a bigger case perhaps?
Anyways thanks for sharing you experience!!

Edit: I think the 1050 isn't in your possession anymore, or is it?

I still have it. It is packed ready to be sent. I have a month time to send it.
Well, there are not so many complains regarding these type of PSU. It looks nice, smaller, perfect for me, but when explodes you go . I am happy that I did not buy high components (i was planning to do it).
I will check them all latter.

I did it. I am waiting for an answer from them.
I could have kept the HX1050, is too big for me and this type of psu is better on bottom mount, but it runs very well and cool.

Like AMDrocks said contact Corsair and see what their answer to the problem is but don't ship the HX1050 back until you have a working unit in your hands. Make sure if any components where harmed to inform them in your response as well.

Good luck!
