Last post, the correct way and incorrect way. The first page has pics of the incorrect one.

See there we go again. I am not a one in a blue moon person. I posted my problems and others are coming out too ranging from stickers, to missing items, to noises, etc.

Honestly I don't care much for the sticker being upside down, I'm not missing anything. BUT! this whining noise is the main factor I'm returning this PSU, I have an 800D and it insulates the sound pretty well on my Crossfire 4890's with 55% fan speed (And their loud!) and I can still hear the noise the PSU makes.

ITT: people blindly are following the review sites rather than listening to the TC.

Honestly, if I was the TC I'd be pretty upset with Corsair, and so would everybody else in here.

EDIT: I just realized that my new tx650 possibly has the stickers upside down as well. I have yet to test the PSU as well, I got it a couple of days before I went out of town. I'll definitely check it out when I get home.

I believe Corsair has a new OEM for these, but still don't these go through Corsair QC? I'm rethinking the AX850 for my new build now, maybe I should just get one of the Thermaltake Grand PSUs.

The ax850 and ax750 are seasonic designs. Trust me, they are good.

I wouldn't be so mad about it too if I paid $100 bucks. I was really mad to find out that the basic accessories were missing. Then a second unit has whining noises too very poor QC.

Easy to give this unit a high rating, send a few hand picked cherry PSU's send them to reviewers and they all drool over the 80 plus gold and modular design. Problem solved. Then the community gobbles it up and now the truth comes out on the units.
