Corsair has been pulling some shifty stuff lately. First the CX line of powersupplies were downgraded, now these ones.

I've always wanted a nice Corsair PSU. But maybe not so much anymore.

I want my 750 to just die.

So i can go buy an X650.

I am getting tired of Corsair's bullcrap.

There's nothing to suggest the HX750 has been changed. Still a CWT DSG last time I saw one opened up.

CWT DSG is good.



I'm not so much upset over them changing it. What upsets me is the wall of silence and the dishonesty involved.
1.) They initially claimed the new units would be from SeaSonic (they're actually from CWT)
2.) They claimed that it would be a separate series (it isn't)
3.) They claimed that the TX series would be only temporarily changed to PSHII (unsure)
4.) And that the PSHII units and the TX650 in particular would be marked with a -C (never happened)


And then nothing.

Gabe Torres reviewed the GS800. It's pretty solid.
