Anyways.. in all fairness you're saying it could have happened to Corsair but it did happen to XFX. Catastrophe can befall any company but the one with the incident takes the reputation damage - it's just how it is. I guess all I was saying was throwing around "it's made by Seasonic - the same company that OEM's for everyone else" doesn't mean very much. We don't know if they paid for lesser tested units or anything of that nature. I should also be honest and say that I've never respected XFX's quality. Their gfx cards were always louder and noiser and quite often hotter than their competitors. They just always struck me as overrated, but YMMV.
Let me be clear about something: While I agree it's disgusting for companies to make us pay for RMA I acknowledge that it's the industry standard to rip us off. It was also completely retarded of him to keep a product he knew was already opened and it was even more retarded to go off on the CS rep before he even denied him service. His entire approach was ill-advised to say the least.

I think you understood the majority of my point... Seasonic has different versions of power supplies, but regardless the majority of the PSU's are exactly the same. It shows in other XFX PSU reviews.

You can debate it all you want, but swear words or asterisks instead of swear words are not allowed on OCN.
