it is a very bad thing to say you won't buy from a certain manufacturer over the odd underperforming product.

Ooh look I have an ASUS motherboard, and after what they did when windows 7 came out.......

Cooler Master has tried to improve their PSU lineup but they focused on the wrong end of the lineup

Their new V series is very good but the new lower end models are still not very good

The new I / G series PSU´s from Cooler Master are still based on the older Enhance Electronics made GX series

Guys, I honestly think it's an outsourcing issue. It doesn't matter if there's a "Cooler Master" or "Corsair" sticker on the product.

Corsair outsource some units to Seasonic (who are apparently one of the best) and to some no-name called CWT.

Here's a good way of putting it, by a fellow who answered my thread on the Corsair forums.


"Just that the OEM's produce within 'design specs' doesn't really mean much.

In the case of PSU's it might not really matter, but what are the exact design specifications? One OEM might exceed the specs more than another...

Another example:
Coca Cola is labelled "Coca Cola" all over the world. Yet there is a huge difference: US Coke is made with high-fructose corn Syrup while the coke in my country is made with plain sugar. The result: Visiting Americans declare that they prefer our Coca Cola over their own. The fact that the Coca Cola company claims they are both 'within specs' doesn't mean we shouldn't / can't bash up on the inferior American recipe of Coca Cola.

I'll give you one more example: HDD's
Seagate's current ST2000DM001 Barracuda 7200.14 2TB HDD was initially supplied to reviewers with two 1-TB platters. However, very soon after that they supplied a variant with three 667-GB platters under the same name: that's big performance difference...

And just to prove a point, one more:
The HTC One S is sold under one label with different SOC's; one being 1.5 GHz and one being 1.7GHz (and faster GPU). When you buy that sucker, you don't really know what you will get."

Corsair's PSUs are very good, as is their service.

Corsair hasn't made consistently good memory in a long time. Actually almost no maker of retail RAM has, thanks to the heavy use of untested chips and factory overclocked chips.

Corsair PSUs are pretty good. They are kinda expensive (AX, HX) though or super cheap (the CX line) and that's the reason I don't buy from them unless they are on sale. My 400CX is chugging along since 09. wubsmiley.gif
