And if this thread only is about flaming Corsair for no reason what so ever, then why should I?

I owe a lot of hardware among those a ThermalTake Thoughpower 875Watt and a Corsair RM1000 and a Corsair AX650 and a ThermalTake 200W.

They all perform okay and I can't really tell the difference.

So I am interfering not to praise Corsair, but simply to enlighten people, that in some countries like in Sweden where I do live, Corsair is not overpriced anymore than any other products. - The same goes for Denmark where OP is from.

Cheers,

Now: Please show me the some facts, because as I see it on page 1 in this whole thread, Corsair is doing pretty darn good smile.gif

If that's what I can expect from their reps, on their premium products. You can count me out, all day, every day until I see a similar scenario where the problem was handled with a solution and conduct themselves in a professional manner.

There shouldn't be any love or hate for a technical product because of a Brand. You simply can't base your entire purchasing decision on "It's a Corsair".

The RM replaced a series that was superior in every way (including price) but lacked the efficiency rating and wasn't fully modular.
Corsair asked its customers what they wanted in the new line, and most voted for, you guessed it, Full Modularity and Gold 80Plus efficiency.

This is not what customers got. Sure they got the modularity/efficiency, but they also replaced the OEM, used cheaper components and priced it a little higher.

Made good business sense to cut costs and increase profit margins (which have to be high for a big company with high overhead to make some sort of net profit). But screwed (a bit) its loyal customers because of this.

Shilka (and I believe the enthusiastic community) felt a little cheated to be honest, because that's not what we asked for.

Yes sorry about that - EDIT I'll try to remember that.

To answer that specific episode you are talking about. - I have had 3-4 or maybe 5 Corsair H100i with different issues with the Corsair link software. I am not allowed to swear here, but that have been pretty annoying. - However, I am a tech guy and after some googling I found out, that I could edit my regedit and fix the issues I had - the last H100i I bought have had no issues. (Corsair support could have told me this instead of me waiting for software there never came).

However, if I had any issues like the one you just linked to, I would not hesitate to replace the hardware trough my hardware dealer. - We do have warranty for a reason right?

I am not sure how it works in the states etc, but over here in EU, warranty are pretty good. (I never personally had to deal with neither Corsair, Asus, Thermaltake etc etc.

Anyway, I am not here to make enemies or flame anyone or be unfriendly, I am simply stating, that my PSU is doing and is delivering what was promised when I bought it.

Piece out.
Cheers,

Wrathier

You want cheap components inside your psu? congratulations smile.gif

Are the Chicony models the only ones with the cheap capacitors or are all of the RM models bad?
I'm not looking to upgrade my PSU (my HX650 works just fine), but I don't want to recommend a bad PSU in the future.

None of the RM PSU's are bad, people seem to be getting the wrong impression. There are just better options for the price, most of the time.

They don't use 'cheap' capacitors, just cheaper than some competing power supplies.

Until my PSU actually burns, I would recommend it to anyone - I have still not seen many complaints about the RM series. - Other than it is overpriced, but a lot of product is.
