    Default Raider0001's weird thread that was just too entertaining to close.

    My corsair VS550 is missing transformer made by CWT, instead i have yellow something that drops voltage a lot and my sound card is turning off - probably because of the v-jump

    If your power supply was missing a transformer, it wouldn't function as a power supply... And that has absolutely nothing to do with your sound card.

    Perhaps he was trying to say (and failed miserably) that instead of the signature green tape on the main transformer, a standard yellow one was used. It appears that he's unsatisfied with the transformer's performance, or rather that he blames the "ordinary yellow" TF for unstable output voltage, which I'm not sure he actually measured (no mention). He then further implies a connection between this suspect TF and it's alleged poor performance with a sound card problem he's experiencing.

    I don't know if I got everything right, but this is as much sense as I can distill from that disaster of a post...
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    yeah its 11,56V when ~350W stress is put on its back (multimeter was used, imagine what would happen if i stress it fully), when my friend has it with proper green cwt transformer and its rock solid with same configuration, sound card is X-Fi Titanium HD and it does have protection against rubbish power source. The other small transformer is still green. I could put a picture of it inside but i will lose warranty which i still want to use to send this garbage back to corsair, or i could send it to johnnyguru just for fun (review)

    There is no electrical difference between the green and yellow transformers. They just have different coloured tape around them.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    Gotta love totally uninformed posters who just randomly blame a psu for their problems, and this derails from the actual topic at hand. The build quality is pretty disappointing on that RM sample. Then again this is a budget gold series from cwt, so how much surprise can there be? I still think it'll be a good budget pick if there's some sales/rebates involved with the psu series later.

    and the voltage drops differently because of tape color

    who told u im uninformed ? i use my soldering gun for almost 15 years i should know something by now

    and funny fact i bought my VS550 on sale! it took me 2 weeks to figure out sound card stability issues

    Do you mean this seriously or are you a comic?
