<< loved my 750tx, love my 1000hx... probably always buying corsair PSU's, always feel like they could withstand a small nuclear explosion..

I have heard they have a bad fail rate compared to other psu's, but i have also read an article about corsair demanding only quality caps and other components from seasonic who make their psus. But generally, the people of this forum seem to be happy with them, and seasonic are great for power supplies.

this would be a nice build

I've written about it on many threads here, CBA to look for them. If you are interested just check out Corsair support forums.

I'm only buying Seasonic after my Corsair fiasco. I have two Seasonics, one of them quite old now, and I've never had a single problem. My S12 is the one that usually takes the place of the TX650 while it's on one of its (many) RMA trips.
