    It might have been too big for any of the USPS flat rate boxes.

    No way to fit that monster into a medium flat rate box.

    sorry i just figured it would since i have my old ax850 in one right now on the floor waiting to ship. it had enough room to cram all the cables in the with padding as well. just not the retail box. i doubt they expect you to have it at this point. might have made it without the cables assuming they don't care if they get them.

    Does it? ... ... ...

    "Note that Corsair did not extend warranties on its regular AX, HX and RM/RX PSUs, which were on the market for a long time, but now are not available from the company."

    Since AX is EOL and nobody buys it, you don't hear much about broken Corsair units in FOrums...
