You had that issue with a Corsair PSU? You must have had a defective unit..

I did say 'most' inferior products for a reason. Just make sure to stick with well known brand names .
And a CORSAIR PSU? That's a surprise haha.

That's not true at all. Here are two examples of quality PSUs from Rosewill.
Rosewill RP500-2 500W Review
Rosewill Capstone 750W Review

I believe that Rosewill PSUs are Newegg branded power supplies from other makers. Some may be lacking in quality, but to say all or that Rosewill is an entirely garbage brand is false.

Ok thats fine. I still wouldnt touch one again. And I still dont recommend them to anyone building a new rig. Too many other brands out there that are much better for the same price. I wouldnt skimp on a psu.
