Windows 7: Power supply went out


24 Jun 2013   #21

Win 7 Pro 64-bit 7601
 
 

Given what happened, this is the usual "bad luck of the techsupport guy".
I have seen PCs running 24/7 on weird brand PSUs and they had no issues for what? 4 years and still counting.

Telling the PC to sleep if inactive is generally a good idea anyway.

I recieved the rma approval and label to ship it back. Im going to contact them first to make sure I gave them the right lot number. I have a question. Do they want the origin box? The email they sent said nothing other than it was approved and a label to ship. I dont have the original box and planned to keep the extra cables.. is that okay?

The box does not matter as long as it is packed well. They will probably want the cables back but the RMA instructions should have stated that. If not then check with Corsair.

When I sent my PSU back it was stated do not return the cables, only the PSU. That info was, I think, on the RMA creation page. Any box should be fine, only Newegg would want everything. I think they try to sell defective returns as "refurbished" at times.

I looked your PSU up and I saw some pretty poor ratings. One review even said it lasted only less than 3 hours. That's just a darn shame! I know people have very negative viewpoints from my PSU brand, but I have a 850W Thermaltake, I've never once had a problem with Thermaltake. Satisfied every time.

Did you look out reviews online before your purchase? Just out of curiosity!

Here is a good review from Johnny Guru. This site does a lot of tests and give detail reviews. Use search to check out your PSU.

Newegg has some bad reviews. CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX550M 550W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Semi Modular High Performance Power Supply - Newegg.com everything has some bad ones though. Sometimes by reading you can see the user is in a noobular world.

I bet they will send you a TX650M Since the 550M is discontinued.
