    Can't see how is this a fault on the user end. Those kind of incompatibilities are very hard to happen (actually they shouldn't even happen) and there's also the fact that there isn't a chart or something to help buyers find out about potential problems.

    Yep, I usually check for memory compatibility - just in case - but never PSU's, and have usually bought Corsairs over the years without any fuss.
    It was only my old HX1000 that failed after a couple of years, but like I said, the replacement HX1050 is still going strong from about 2012 or thereabouts.
    Oh well, that's life I suppose...

    I had a bit of an 'EEEK !' moment this morning when I booted up, because the PC froze towards the end of loading the desk top.
    I had to press the 'power' button to get it to restart, and then it went into the boot loop a few times trying to start.
    So shut it down and switched my PSU on and off and then on and tried restarting again, which it did successfully and has been working just fine since then.
    The EEEK moment was because this is using my RM550X which displayed the same symptoms of my AX860i, recently RMA'd back to Corsair, which is the 3rd one I have had.
    This is the first time this has happened since I have been using it for about a month now.

    Should I be worried, will I have to switch to another make of PSU (only as a last resort), or will I have to ditch my very expensive motherboard for another make, which would now have to be a cheap one ?

    If you go from a DSP Flextronics unit to an LLC CWT unit and still have the same problems, the fact that "Corsair" is written on the outside of the housing doesn't make much difference.

    Thanks johnny,
    It was just a bit disconcerting when the PSU acted up this morning.
    Perhaps I am just a bit over sensitive, and a bit frustrated that my old PC from 2009 with a Gigabyte EX58 Extreme, I7 920, Corsair HX1050 and stuff is still going strong today.
    I spent a fortune on this latest build, and it is not giving me the pleasure that I thought it would.
    The joys of the modern PC - for me anyway - so I must have upset some God over the years....

    Yes, despite the reviews and the price, you may well be right.
    I'm screwed...
    This PC was supposed to last me for the rest of my days....*sigh, but..

    I know that this is an old thread, but I recently saw someone(actually quite many people) who has the same shutdown problem, but the official Corsair distributer in Korea refused service because it worked well in their facility. Is worldwide warranty avalivable in this case? Any statement or action to Korean distributor from Corsair?

    What do you mean by "world wide warranty"?

    Do you mean sending the PSU back to Corsair? Of course Corsair warranties their products world wide.

    I'm not sure what you're asking.
