Regarding the TX line, revisions in products are pretty common - they're usually announced, but not always. Yes, consumers probably should have been informed - but the resulting power supply is supposedly better performing, so there's not so much to worry about, right?
Re failure points - I've usually seen failure points used to describe the probability of failure - ie in this case there are 6 failure points not 2, so if 1 of 6 fails it will break instead of 1 of 2 (regardless of load). So, high load has nothing to do with it, and if it fails surely Corsair will just replace it? I'm sure it would be an inconvenience but they clearly expect few of the new design to actually fail - if many did they'd have serious problems. As such, the lower quality production may not be such a negative thing - sure, it's worse, but it's not perhaps *that* much worse. The TX series is not a premium series for sure.
I never said that I knew tonnes about Corsair's internal policies. I was just pointing out that they probably aren't in general to attempt to sell more by lowering the quality - it's not sound practice in any business. Also, it makes no real sense at all in general and just seems to be an angry post from someone who is, as you so finely put, farting in here.
Sure, Corsair will just replace it.
But increased possibility of failure is not what I, as a customer, want to get when I'm paying for a supposedly premium product.
