    Yeah, it's the Enhance built 850w unit. I'll take a look at the caps before swapping it in, but they're not the bad Teapos. It hasn't been too stressed for the majority of its life.
    Thanks for the...

    Is there a Gen2 of this? Because I got one for my new Ryzen rig because EVGA always said quality to me. Guess I forgot about this one.
    Anyway, my box just says 10 year warranty, not 5+5... So kinda...

    Awesome! Thanks for the info!
    Guess I won't rip it to bits and poke at it with a soldering iron then.

    Last time I looked at RMA to Corsair, postage of the TX back to Holland cost about 70% of the price of a new unit.

    CX500 no power good

    I have a CX500 powered machine in the house, and it's now only firing up about 1 time in 20 or so. I poked my DMM across all the rails, and in typical Corsair fashion, all the voltages are within a...

    Maybe, but only if it's completely terrible. In which case it's a danger to your system. Otherwise, nope.

    JG is spot on. You need to get your actual hand on a few. Find ones with a comfortable shape, and then pick from the ones that actually fit your actual hand.

    Avoid razor, because build quality.

    The reasoning is circular.

    There aren't many decent units with 80mm fans because the fans are loud. So, no market demand.

    Ensure it's updated at every possible point, and have security software running. You should be fine.

    Sad to see the poor cap choices in there, possibly the only thing spoiling this unit.

    Sounds to me like there's a dodgy filter cap somewhere in the analogue audio circuits on the board. A soundcard would obviously bypass that, and would be an easy solution.

    Asus drivers aren't as twitchy as Creative's but they're not great either. However, there are 3rd party drivers out there for the Xonar cards.

    Another excellent unit. CWT have stepped their game up with the HXi for Corsair. Pity it's more expensive than the EVGA units.

    Just make sure your case has lots of fan intake. The air will make its way out through the PSU.

    Or strap a nice chunky fan on top :p

    Seasonic units are fine. 620w is plenty for a system that probably isn't that much over 450w in reality. The S12 and M12 are older designs, but perfectly servicable and well built. PSU calculators...

    Given those things have had their design stable for ages, they probably farmed a number of those out already.

    Very impressed by superflower, pretty sure my next unit will be SF based.
