By the way, though I hate to interfere with all the Corsair TX bashing currently going on, a pattern change of the reviews on Newegg can not tell you anything substantive about TX series reliability. It's anecdotal evidence, and while it may indicate something, there are far too many possible causes for it to be considered as any sort of "proof".
For that matter, I haven't seen any evidence, in the multiple threads we have now dealing with the revised Corsair TX PSU's, that the failure rate has increased.
The initial issue seemed to be about Corsair revising the design, and not announcing the fact. I can understand that people, myself included, would like to know what they are buying, and that the reviews they read of a particular model reflects what they are currently buying.
And I understand the questions about the current design, as to whether it will have the same performance and reliability.
I'm not so sure I understand the idea that some people might hold that the current TX series is junk, or that Corsair lied to people, or that Corsair is now somehow not a company to be trusted.
I did buy an Corsair HX850 for my first build, mostly due to dumb luck. It was the first component I bought for the build. I saw it on sale, quickly compared price at other retailers, read a few reviews in a hurry, and placed the order. It was a really good price, and I've learned it has an even better reputation than I first thought. (and yes it is overkill for my rig)
How would I have felt if it was a newly revised model with the same part number (though with a -C), and hadn't been reviewed in its new iteration? I would be very disappointed for sure. There would be a big question mark in my mind. Did I make the right purchase after all?
I found the information on the initial thread dealing with the -C TX's interesting, and I think it's good for everyone to be informed, and maybe Corsair will get the message. It would have been better if Corsair had been able to get the word out, a notice to hardware sites that TX units were revised. The -C is a definate revision.
What is troubling me is a sense that some people are jumping on a bandwagon, and building the issue into something it's not.
