The buying factors for me were, Price, Modular cables, size, reviews i read before purchasing, and the fact that it was the only decent PSU the store had in stock when i went in to buy a second GPU. Anyway, before you say anything, ill just say, this thread should have been titled "Why I wouldn't buy an RM series PSU" Its just the same as I would never buy a Ford, and I could also provide plenty of information on problems and faults to support my argument, but i would never tell someone else that they shouldnt buy a Ford, it comes down to personal preference, budget, and availability i guess. Just my 2 cents.

If I was admin I would probably just remove the thread as being preposterous entirely.
Have a nice day, evening or whatever TZ you are in guys.
I am going to step in and say a few things after i have been trying to keep out of it.
First off some of you want to make this personal and some of the posts are rude if not downright nasty, So many of those users have been blocked as i dont feel like getting attacked because you dont like what i say
No this thread will not be locked or removed just because some dont like it, It has vaild facts and information in it, That will not change no matter how much everyone complain about it.
Also if you bought an RM and you like it good for you, But i am not that interested about that so stop going on and on forever about you dont like this thread because you need to feel good about what you bought.
Also a number of things have been misunderstood i never said the RM was overpriced in Denmark alone, I looked at shops all over the world before i started this thread and over 90% of the shops i looked at have PSU´s that are just as good or better for around the same money, So no that argument is completely pointless and a waste of everyone´s time
Last i never said it was crap that it was going to blow up or that you should never buy it at all, I said you can often if not always find better in the same price range anyone that cant understand that need to read the OP again

I almost agree with you there as most (not all of them) of the RM owners and some die hard Corsair fanboys cant keep a civil tone, The mods have removed lots of such posts.
I dont mind discussion but so far almost all of it has ended in verbal fistfights, I am tired of it as this thread was to inform everyone that dont know any better, But some want to take it as an insult and spam this thead with i dont like this and i dont like that and you are not allowed to say this and that and bla bla blaEdited by shilka - 4/11/14 at 4:36am
