The HX650 is kind of a rip-off at its current price.

$94.99 after rebate doesn't sound too bad. Not too many other good modulars around in that price range. In fact, The CM Silent Pro 600 is around that price range, too.

Definitely overkill, but it's modular, and...plenty of power.

Two units I linked you to earlier are just as good as the HX650, and they're considerably cheaper:

The HX650 is a good unit... but it's nothing special, especially not for that price.

Why do I have a feeling this is a cheap PSU? that's over half off.

I believe it's an older model. It did use to be expensive, and the review was good.

...just outside the 30-day Newegg return timespan.

CM wants me to pay shipping (for this thing it's around $20-$30, probably more), which is just not worth it for their defective product. I have a 5 year warranty, so I might return it if I go to California within that amount of time

Any recommendations on what do do with this thing? The fan gets louder day by day, and I'd say it's a good 50-60dBa at this point. I probably will just get a new power supply, if anything, so does anyone have some good recs for a 600-700W PSU for around or under $100? HX650 is lookin good in that arena, and that's around the maximum I'll pay for a new PSU, maybe including rebate.

Heh, I might ship it back to them if and when I get that $20 rebate

Silent Pro reviews are nice, I just got a crappy fan.

First option is to RMA it( as it is the cheapest)

Second option is get this from ebay http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trk...All-Categories

PS: Please don't tell it is a bad PSU( I am using it for my Desktop which runs fine on it, also it is a rebranded Huntkey X7 900)

Time to resurrect since I've been away at Smuggs for the weekend. The C2D T9300 I sold on ebay did better than I thought, going off for ~$120. I should be able to toss up on a replacement with that (Still dunno which), RMA the M600, and then probably sell the RMA, but IDK for how much.

Thanks for the suggestions, +rep for the help. Any other suggestions welcome.

EDIT: Modular PSUs if possible!

The XFX is not as good as the HX650. HX650 is just slightly better.
