Damn, what's Corsairs problem? Cheapening themselves out?

Luckily for some, I don't think I am affected. But for the people out there that are buying the current Corsair 650TX may be hit hard.

they think cutting costs to compete is how they will sell PSUs, they want to focus on us, we want quality for the price, not a POS psu

Did you read the thread?

took a look O.o according to them, they could pull 1000W from the 800W unit without failure O.o so my 700W unit should be good to run 3 gfx cards xD
considering the 3rd being an 8600GTS, isnt very load bearing

There's a difference between theoretical max load and what it should be run at. Any decent power supply can supply a bit more than its labeled wattage; pulling 25% more than the label claims could indicate a lack of OCP or OPP.
