Wrong. We identified the issue and took steps to correct it back in OCT of 2013. You are a little late to the party. Care to correct yourself since you claim you are removing incorrect information from this thread?

The Corsair RM series power supplies are designed to run without active cooling for up to 40% load at typical room temperatures (25°C, or 77°F) and are capable of continuously outputting 100% of output capability at ambient temperatures of up to 40°C (104°F). We have found that our power supplies are typically used in environments much lower than 40°C and tend to have some natural aspiration within the chassis that allows for some air movement, such as from a nearby graphics card or chassis fan, within the PSU housing, when temperatures exceed normal room temperatures. We have found that this normal aspiration can maintain Corsair’s Zero-RPM fan-less mode even at temperatures as high as 35°C (95°F) when only at 40% load for durations of up to 15 minutes.

Thanks to recent feedback provided by an early reviewer, we have discovered a PSU fan operation issue that can be triggered with the RM750 and RM850W under highly unusual operating conditions. For the issue to occur, the PSU must be run for more than 15 minutes at:
  • Ambient temperature 35°C (95°F) or higher
  • Zero ambient airflow, i.e. no airflow provided by system fans or by fans on other components

Under these conditions, impacted PSUs may shut down before the cooling fan starts spinning. This shutdown will cause no damage to the PSU or the system. As these conditions are extraordinarily harsh, we believe most users will not be impacted. If you feel you have a unit that has been impacted, we are offering advance replacement returns for the PSU, with Corsair paying all freight costs. Please click here for instructions on how to obtain a replacement unit, or to ask any questions.

Thank you for choosing Corsair; we are committed to making sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase.

Update - November 14, 2013:
In an effort to improve our products for all of our users, we have updated the RM750 and RM850 to resolve this issue. The thermistor circuit that is used to measure the temperature for the fan controller and OTP has been changed in all RM750 and RM850 PSU’s moving forward. An additional resistor has been added that will result in the fan turning on prior to the condition that causes the PSU to shut down in the event that temperatures exceed 45°C.

skilka, If someone asks about a Corsair unit, you will ALWAYS link them to something else. You never have any constructive conversations about the unit in question except to say either one of two things:

"It's alright, BUT....blah blah blah"

or

"don't get that one, [insert link to diff manufacturer here]"

That is why your looked at as biased shilka. I doubt there is a single corsair unit on the market that you would agree with purchasing, let alone suggesting to others. Its very, very noticeable to some of us (not just Corsair owners either) and it's why I no longer browse the PSU section of this great forum. And now you have other users that think your some kind of PSU guru and think that if skilka says its crap then it must be crap.

What a load of... rolleyes.gif

It's just one post after another of you slamming on the Corsair brand if someone should ask about them. You seriously will not let a single thread go on with the possibility of that person purchasing a Corsair unit. You have to sway them away from that idea at all costs - and THAT is where your looked at as biased in my eyes.

He always has a list of PSU's to suggest based on price range and what is needed. It just happens Corsair doesn't have a #1 spot on the list. Most of the threads I see involving asking about a PSU, someone is asking if a Corsair [enter series here] is what they need. Usually they have it overshot in watts, or it is a lower end trying to run dual GPU. I can see how he looks bias, but he really isn't. Also, he talks in short, quick sentences, so it may seems like he is being a little rude - yet he isn't.

Despite how much it looks like i dislike the CX i have saved a dozen people from buying a junker unit and told them to get a CX

So calling me biased is just plain wrong

Let me ask you a short question ...
CX = Mediocre at a average price point that usually SF makes way better products with. Would you recommend them?
CS = Lame and mediocre v2
AX = Same PSU from Seasonic and more expensive. Why buy it when you can get the same for less?
AXi = Not particularly well-performing yet very expensive. And Corsair Link is a arse to get right
RM = Those caps ... engineered to last out till warranty is over. Spells disaster. I can buy something at that price point that is made out of all japanese caps from seasonic (Granted it's not seasonic selling it) and is also gold certified and fully modular and can definitely trust in it AFTER the warranty runs out.
TX = Loud and nothing in particular.
VS = The worst PSUs I've seen for a "enthusiast" PSU
GS = Don't even get me started ...

We went to Fry's today and got a 3570k and a new PSU....Also we let Frys test his Corsair GS700 and confirmed to be the culprit oh this whole nightmare mad.gif, an overvoltage on the rails and the technician hears cracking noise in the PSU when he switched it on.
Its confirmed to be dead. frown.gif

Sadly that PSU only lasted less than 6 months....Looks like Corsair won't be in my friend's recommended PSUs brands list anymore.

When a person is able to get a Good Corsair psu (AX,HX) at relatively cheap price, he let them get it.

I don't think anyone here in the PSU section is out to bash corsair as a brand, they do make some excellent products!

the reason shilka & others do not really recommend corsair psu's is quite simply there a many better value units out there that are more reliable & perform better.
and calling him biased & that he is the only one who says such things is not right or true really!
I can honestly say I have owned a fair few corsair psu's & I use to swear by them, not anymore though as I have had the shoddy TXM series sway me away!
years ago they were good, cant really say the same nowadays though?

Personally if I was going to buy a corsair psu? the only series I would buy is the AX? that's it! and it would be dearer in most cases to do so!

all anybody does here when recommending a PSU is try & give people the best value for money & a unit that will be the most reliable for there requirements!

Sure some people will favour certain brands & that's fine, I personally like XFX PSU's over most other brands, simply because I like the look of them & know they are pretty good quality, however if there was crap inside of them I wouldn't like them so much really now would I ?

Its quite simple if you want to buy a Corsair PSU that's up to you!

Everybody attacking shilka because of the information he provides should really just stop, He is a credit to the community & im sure there would be a lot more people crying that there PSU has blown up without him! Just because every little detail isn't listed or updated is irrelevant, I don't see Corsair posting any information here to inform people of any problems with there units?

Id say really you ought to thank him! as im sure that Corsair may actually be taking notice & improve there current lineup of PSU's.
