Dont bother getting a new PSU there is not that much reason to

Would ber cheaper to get lutro0 to make some cables for you

That way you can also get your own custom colors/braid/pattern and it would feel and look much better

Because there is no problem in the RM series to begin with, so chances are, you will not see any even after the series is EOL. I can tell you that fact from a support side point of view. We've never seen a huge amount of return on a monthly basis. And like what you said, we stand behind our product all the way should you need support.

There is a problem, you don't put cheap components on a 100$+ psu and sugar coat it with coil whine free, ultra silent, gold efficient bla bla bla.
Your RM750 with an MSRP of 130$ vs EVGA 750w g2 with the same MSRP

The facts are flat out presented to you but you still insist that your product is competitive even though its not.

That is an interesting, and wholly false, way of looking at things given Corsair's previous announcement of problems with the series. Are you a new employee?

It's standard Corsair take on RM series.

Denial is not just a river in Egypt.

I do find it interesting that they claim on Reddit that the review stated the quality of the unit is good (edit: sorry it says "very good") and that should be addressed. In order to come to that conclusion they would have to have taken a very narrow comment out of context, as there was a large caveat to it, as marketing is wont to do. Even if the RM750 HAD been a passing unit it was not a high quality one (and I hope no one purchases it thinking so). At best it was a mixed bag in quality. In performance, it is worse than the lower end TX units previously reviewed. Further, the temperature issue was actually WORSE in the end by Corsair's admission than what was found when I had the units.

Sorry if you feel that way sir, but you are referring to pricing, which is obviously not my field. Like what I've stated, from a support POV, we are not seeing any issues that is dire. If there is one that requires urgent attention, then we'd be the first one to acknowledge it and like the past, we'd take action and provide solution right away.

Yes, there was a concern (HardOCP review) about the fan not turning on, but that has already been addressed and resolved by adding a second thermistor for the fan control.

Again, there have been no major set backs with our RM series, it's been selling well and our tech support guys are not seeing any trends in terms of a specific complain, then that tells me that the RM is just dong fine.

oh btw, 7 years sir.

It's too early to verify how reliable the units are in real life scenarios. Lab tests can be an indicator, but not always reliable.

After 2-3 years we'll see how reliable the units are in the long-run.
