    alby800 reacted to STRMfrmXMN in Corsair CX600M Review - Are all Cheap PSUs bad?   
    There's a bit of misinformation in here which I want to clear up.
     
     
     
    Reviewers have known for a long time that cheaper PSUs are not "ok" per se, for every build. No reviewer will tell you it's a good idea to put a Corsair VS (old) in a system with two GTX 980s. In the past it used to be that you'd buy the highest wattage PSU you could afford which usually meant you were OK. Now, however, as consumerism has become more rampant in the tech industry, desktop PSUs have been significantly cheapened to the point where it's very easy to buy units that are cheap and also shitty. You can tell by looking at the internals of a Corsair CX that it won't last forever and that it should not be used with hot components and that it won't be the most reliable thing in the world for people in hot climates with hot systems. 
     
    It's not super uncommon. Nearly every OEM does it.... FSP, Super Flower, Channel Well, Delta, Seasonic, heck, even Etasis has their own units. 
     
    But yes, many do have brands that source models from them.
     
    Yes, a 3 year warranty isn't great, however, if put in a correct system this should be no worry. They're intended for office builds as they brand on their own website. And the efficiency thing? Commonly misunderstood. 80+ Bronze vs 80+ Platinum would save the average joe up to maybe $5 USD per year if they use a PC like I do. For someone folding@home all day then it makes perfect sense as you could save upwards of perhaps $70 per year which is pretty significant. However, even most gaming systems won't see a benefit from higher 80+ PLUS efficiency. Check out the link in my sig about it. It's also pinned on the PSU/Cases subforum. Very few people have any actual reason for higher efficiency apart from the security of knowing that it's at least trying to be efficient as well as the security of knowing that it's not made up of corn and bacon grease.
     
    Yes, the M means it is semi-modular. The M also implies that it's one of the CX that have a higher temperature tolerance (I believe of either 42C or 37C) and are actually not built terrible inside at all. The third-generation CX series are the same as the M-series. This does mean that, if a seller doesn't properly check the SKU of the PSU their selling that you could end up with a first or second-gen one that is inferior when you paid for a better product. 
     
    Again, it's not "bad," it's just that people see "Corsair" on the side and assume it's better than it is because many assume Corsair makes the power supply which they don't. This doesn't make it bad, it means that people haven't properly read into what they're buying which happens with millions of other products like cars, for example. It has a mix of capacitors (the 3rd gen and M-series) that are capable of either 85C or 105C depending on what part of the PSU they're on. The PSU still doesn't like high temperatures but the point is it isn't the caps that cause it to struggle at high temps.
     
    Corsair still brands it for office PCs
     
    It's entirely possible that, if your GPU were starved of power that you might have framerate issues, however I'm willing to bet that it was more a placebo effect of buying a better PSU.
     
     
     
     It's not a bad apple. It's a poorly misunderstood unit. If you put it in the right system, as I've said many times before, then it will be fine. You can find better PSUs for the money for not much more (Antec HCG, EVGA B2, Seasonic/XFX units). The lower-wattage units are the ones that fit a proper value spectrum, like the CX430M which may be better for somebody who will see no tangible difference. Once you get into CX500M and up territory then it can make a difference, of course. 
     
    If you can't recommend it to *anyone* then you've also misunderstood this unit in its entirety. It's not for systems with GTX 770s like yours. It's for no-GPU or 750ti systems. You just misused it.

    alby800 reacted to TaranLMG in Open Letter to Linus Media Group   
    Hey bros. Taran here. I just happened to see this topic and thought I'd respond.
     
    Edzel, Brandon, Dennis, and myself all went to BCIT together for Television/Broadcast in the same year. We all became friends during the two-year program, and now we get to work together as well.
     
    Here's one of the dumb projects we made during that time:

     
    When you see Nick (Van Berkel) acting mean towards Dennis, you're seeing it out of context. They are friends, and are currently roommates. Nick teases all of us for all sorts of things, that's just his personality. Guys who like each other will pretend to be mean!
     
    We all like Dennis around here and he's a valuable member of the team. I recorded a bit where I say that - you'll see it in an upcoming moving Vlog.
     
    That being said, I know it can certainly LOOK like Berkel is just a big bully sometimes, so I like to get footage where Dennis strikes back. (Like the The Office style interview where he mocks Berkel for talking too much, and the part where he gets Nick a shirt that says "white people can't read this.")
     
    It's mot always easy to show everything for what it really is in a 15 minute video that encompasses a whole day, but we do try.

    This is actually my first time replying on forum.
    I went to high school and college in Canada for about 4 years. I know my English is not perfect and I am still working on it.
     
    As you guys know most of us went to BCIT together and we have known each other quit well. Berkel is my best friend in Canada(maybe). that would be weird if he actually treated me too nice. He helped me a lot on moving here, settling down in Canada a lot more that you guys won't see behind the camera. Any jokes he made didn't bother me and they were entertaining for me as well.
     
    If there were actually a racist or uncomfortable work environment at LMG, how would I abandon all my friends and family and moved away from Taiwan? I enjoy working here with all the great people. thank you for your consideration though. it's all good.

    I got mine on special from mwave a couple weeks ago for $139. Tbh they are a pretty good headset. They are light and comfy and they don't suffocate your head which is gr8 in aus (fkn 40 degree days twice in two weeks...) I prefer the mic over the big boom thing on the sennheiser ones but idk about sound quality in comparison. They aren't as good as my m50x's but are gr8 with games.
