No, it's not.

The Power Supply wasn't good on the Xbox, infact it lead to 1 out of 8 RROD.

It's also VERY unfair to assume they got the innards wrong (in fact it's incorrect since Seasonic makes the internals as has been pointed out) just because of flipped decals.
I don't think so. When you pay $300-$400 for a top teir PSU, basic things like including the accessories and put the sticker wrong is something you don't even see in a $30 PSU. Not once have I ever gotten a PSU with stickers on the wrong way and missing screws.

If it was crooked sure, mis matched screws sure, but completely messed...on a PSU that is equivilent to an Audi R8 Super car, well that is a not acceptable. Imagine you buy your R8 and it doesn't come with wheels. You go back to the dealer and buy another one and this time the engine is making noises and oil is leaking. You would be furious.

Now you might think $300 compared to $140,000 is a difference, but it isn't. $300 is to get one of the best PSU's, 140k is for one of the best cars. If you purchase the best for what is compared to their own respective price ranges, you expect quality.

After two units, I did not receive quality. I did not receive a proper RMA, I was told to wait 26 whole days before they can even ship one...assuming I wanted to do a cross ship. Imagine if EVGA did that, well sorry we don't have motherboards or graphics cards on hand, please wait a month til we can get you one.

Other people from forums throughout are getting the problems too. I even posted a new thread, but they just put it inside my asethetics problem. I couldn't even have a seperate topic for just the buzzing, which is whatever I guess.

I love Corsair ranging from SSD, PSU, Cases, to RAM, but I have never had multiple problems like this. I get a motherboard that has sensitive parts and bios issues, but a PSU should be the most stable component inside your machine besides your actual computer case.

I just finished reading this thread and had to chime in to point this out, notice the decal is upside down right on the web page as well.

I realize that it is not meant to be that way, just kind of funny. I can understand why you would be upset about yours being delivered as it was as well, when you pay that kind of money for a piece of hardware you want it to come complete. I think the second one must have just been bad luck and it's pretty cool that newegg is shipping another one for you. Good luck with the third one, hope it works well for you.

CRAP. My mind was still on a thread about the AX850. I still stand by what I said, though.

You're missing the point. You didn't have to ask for another entire power supply just because they left out accessories.

I need to ask what nobody else has so far, from what I can see; was anything inherently wrong with the first unit itself? Moreover, did you test it using the accessories you got from the second unit?

This is ridiculous, I'm getting 200 dollars worth of sleeving on my unit and I still wouldn't care about a sticker.

+100 rszanto! I've been waiting on Seasonic's X1000/X1200 to be released for comparisons and this makes the decision even easier.

You are missing the point. You are missing the fact you buy a very exclusive high end brand PSU and it comes with basic things missing. This is not acceptable. I didn't bother testing the first unit because the utmost basic things were done incorrectly. I am not going to risk $4,000 worth of hardware because I should look past the flaws of a well known A+ rated brand.

Now imagine if Corsair labeled all their 1000 watt PSU's as 550 watts and sold them to consumers. We would be very happy, but Corsair would be pissed. Instead Corsair sells us these units with problems left and right and now the consumer is pissed.

For the guys who say its a sticker or its some screws, next motherboard you buy, how about you take the SATA cables out or the SLI/Crossfire bridges out. There are plenty of spare ones, no you wouldn't like that would you? You wouldn't even be happy if Intel forgot to include their crappy heatsink for your new I7, even though you won't even dare use, but if its missing you'd be pissed. You can deny it, but I am willing to bet you that you buy a nicely sealed processor without the heatsink, thinking there would be one, you wouldn't be very pleased.
