I currently work for Corsair. I have not seen any "batches" of exploding 860i's.

I actually use an AX860i to power a rig with three GTX670's.

A lot of the Seasonic units, including Corsair's AX860, do have some whining issues when in standby. Ever since the +5VSB circuit was upgraded to comply with ErP 2013 requirements, the X cap, PFC cap and +5VSB transformer has been known to make whining noises.
