A digital multimeter (DMM) is usually the best of the simpler ways to measure voltages. If you can borrow one, or even just buy one (they are dirt cheap), it can tell you stuff with more certainty.

The 500W version should have Teapos in it. At least if you go by the TPU review. It's the 600W one that has Su'scon crapacitors. But it sounds like it's on the fritz anyway.

I'm gonna say it's Delta, because the specs look like a Chieftec PSU I had once and that one was had the "GPS" designation and was made by them.

Edit: Also, the UL number E131881 returns Delta,...

If you already have the AX860i and as you say, you've not experienced any of the problems you mention, I wouldn't bother with the hassle of returning the Corsair and getting the Antec. I think...

Yeah, it's why I was a bit disappointed there were no internal shots, I wanted to see if any have bulged or leaked. But perhaps it would have been mentioned if that was the case.

How did the CapXons hold up after the 7 year run I wonder? Oh well, at least the PSU actually still kind of works.

Well, although I agree that their lower end products are now questionable (at least looking at what they charge for them) you can't write off their entire PSU lineup. It's not for no reason that...

The CX series really isn't "bugdet" anymore. Way too expensive for that. I can get the equivalent wattage XFX ProSeries XXX modular for a bit of extra pocket change here.

I thought it had a MIR, sorry. (must have mistakenly glanced at the 750Ti MIR and thought it applied to the 7850). Was a late night last night, I hadn't had my coffee yet today, lol. The 270 is...

Unless he really wants to go nVidia, instead of the 750Ti, you could take a look at this HD7850 which is also $130 after MIR. It's generally faster in most games over the 750 Ti.

Afaik, they have to review what is chosen by the manufacturer. Unless they go and buy the unit themselves.

Now for some reason it says efficiency is 46A, lol. Seems legit. :D

Bleh, what's Lepa up to these days...? The MX F1 600W over at [H] was crap too.

650W is plenty for the 290X. It draws a lot of power (up to ~300W), but even with the rest of your rig added on top of that, the PSU isn't anywhere near being overloaded.

Hmmm, I've never had any trouble with Seasonics or Seasonic built PSUs, but if I was as unlucky as you are, in the end I'd probably be looking at another brand/manufacturer too.

I'm planning to use my HX750 with my next build. It's 5 years and a few months old, but I'm trusting it to last another few years.

I always thought that was more on paper than in practice, since the CX430 survived testing at 46C at HWSecrets (http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Corsair-CX430-V2-Power-Supply-Review/1284/7). ...

Lol, that Ultraview thing. 150 useable watts from a "750W" PSU. Absolutely disgusting. :p

At 460C/860F, I'm not sure even LN is enough, lol. Plus you need a sturdy case, with the atmospheric pressure being 92x that of Earth. (The corrosive atmosphere probably won't help either).

Good to see they are getting their pricing right now. Feeling the competition I guess.
