Well played Corsair, you've lost a customer that's been with you from the start.

Weird...

Mean while I was discouraged from buying an OCZ psu and encouraged to go Corsair.

So happy with my 1000 watt psu I got on sale for $50, going 3 years now. Love the 80a 12v rail and 98% efficiency.

Personally I think Corsair quality is going south while the prices are not. With my last few builds I would buy the Corsair part if Corsair made it. With my latest set up I ended up swapping out most of the Corsair stuff for other options and seem to be better off for it.

- A860i - fan tried to "clunk" on every 5 seconds. Sent that down the river for an EVGA and haven't had an issue yet
- H105 - pump was very noisy
- H100i - one fan buzzes horribly, Link does not play well with others
- Vengeance Memory - no dice, swapped out for Crucial and all was well

I also have an older Z77 rig here which has a Corsair PSU, H100, and memory. Works absolutely flawlessly. Wouldn't trade it for the world. I should mention I went through three H100's before I found one that didn't sound like a rock-tumbler and had two functional fans.

I've heard people say "oh but Corsair swapped everything out really quickly". Sorry, the stuff should work right off the bat. Personally, I get irked when my time, shipping money, and gas are wasted because I have to build part of a system a second time around.

Not trying to hate on Corsair but this is what I've personally observed.
