I have been a frequent visitor on the Corsair support forums since then, and you will see many many 650s with similar issues.

The 750 was in my office and lasted for a year or so, this one burnt (that's what it smelt like), and took out the mobo in the process. I don't know the exact reasons since it Spain we usually do not RMA directly to the manufacturer (at least that's how I've always done it), the shop usually does it, and they get the replacement which they then give to you. The person that gave me my replacement didn't have the slightest idea about what was wrong. It did take quite a bit of time though.

Anyhow, I may have been unlucky but that is enough for me to stop buying them. On another comment, I had no idea these are made by Seasonic. Why would Corsair do something like that? Not like these are dimms or lcd displays....

Most PSUs aren't made by themselves. PC Power & Cooling is made by OCZ. Its just how it works.

All the mentioned power supplies are fine, even though they are more than you need.

For 2 260's any of these would be fine, not limited to of course.

If you asked for my brand choice Id stick to PC Power and cooling, seasonic, silverstone or Corsair.

But any of the above ones are fine, and the others mentioned.

Right now newegg has the corsair 750tx on for 130cdn plus 20us off.

Ironically, the 750s more than an 850.

Question on this... What modular psu would power 2 260s and a q6600? Tax time so maybe new 260.........
