Why you might not want to buy a Corsair RM PSU - Page 20

oh btw, 7 years sir.

You call having to change the basic fan function because it would not turn on prior to the OTP being reached resulting in a unit shutting down by an error in design to be "no problems with the RM series"? Did you work for Boeing on the 787 PR campaign before this stint? The amount of denial by Corsair reps on a very public, easily identifiable, and not only admitted to but expanded upon problem by Corsair after they were shown how to test their product is greatly concerning. I get that you guys are scared that everyone has realized that this was an ill advised product incapable of performing as well as the lower end TX units you initially wanted to kill once the reviews started coming out, but this continued attempt to cover up the fact that there was an issue is a bit ridiculous.

The caps on the RM ... Belongs to a sub-80$ PSU not a 119$ PSU. That is how bad it is.

People have.....that is how we figured out, irrespective of the design issues with the fan not turning on before the OTP turns the unit off, that the older TX series (v1 and v2, Corsair never allowed the v3's to be reviewed and I never had time in my queue to buy one to review when they were available) are better products than the RM series.

Supposedly, if you would like to spend the extra money, the Antec platinum PSUs are really good delta-built units. I'm actually a bit sad I bought a corsair now... lol.

Not all delta fans are loud, also. Some are much quieter. And yeah, it's PWM smile.gif
