  1. On-line UPS definitely would, but they aren't cheap. What's your CPU cooler, an AIO by any chance ? Maybe it's leaking ? In any case, contact Corsair support, we can only assume things here, they would be able to say for sure what's happened after you would return the unit.
  2. 12V-heavy crossloads aren't unusual at all in a modern system. In a PC without RGB and HDDs the power draw on 3.3V and 5V rails would be minuscule, while the rest of power draw would be on 12V rail. It isn't lol, it was a standard recommendation when group regulated PSUs were prevalent, they aren't today. Or rather, even in budget range (50-60$), DC-DC units are very affordable, so no reason to buy a group regulated PSU unless you want an absolute cheapest stuff and the rest of your PC is exactly as cheap. It's not exactly about damage from out-of-spec voltage regulation, it's
  3. You do. Against group regulated PSUs. Which bqt SP E9 is, as most of the rest of PSUs in tier D. Which aren't suitable for a modern high power draw PC because they'll struggle with keeping voltages in specifications (5%), not to mention in tighter 1-2% which any modern DC-DC PSU will be able to. And you would've knew that if you've read the methodology first. Also, this PSU is 10 years old so it wouldn't be recommended for purchase anyway. And we have a bunch of PSUs from Seasonic there in tier D, group regulated and not. As we do a have a bunch of FSP-branded/made PSUs in tier A among others.
  4. I know what you meant, i'm saying that when it comes to choosing a PSU, 80+ certification is nearly useless metric.
  5. In some markets right now Corsair CX-F is as cheap as CX, if not, CX is fine too.
  6. 80 Plus certification doesn't mean anything except literally just the efficiency.
  7. Try maybe asking them if they can replace it with Dark Power Pro 12 this time then.
  8. What kind of upgrades ? If you aren't planning to get a second GPU, even a 1kW PSUs would be enough. I see 1kW Corsair RMx and bqt SP11 for 170-175 EUR, or 1.2kW Corsair HX for 240 EUR, these would've been my choices. But if you have problems with the PSU you already have, why not just replace it under warranty ?
  9. Those are limits defined by ATX specifications, actual tolerances may be wider. And it's entirely possible for a group regulated PSU like Corsair VS550 to have such wide voltage variations under crossloads, what's your CPU and GPU ?
  10. Not talking about specific units, 850W. But some 750W would be okay, most actually. In Canada try Bitfenix Whisper M, very good stuff : https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/wmJkcf/bitfenix-whisper-m-750w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-bp-wg750umag-7fm Or 850W version : https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/MMrcCJ/bitfenix-whisper-m-850w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-bp-wg850umag-7fm PS: Actually, in this case, since that's multi-rail unit i'd go with 850W, still not terribly more expensive than most 750W units.
  11. In any case, static voltage regulation is not what kills components, it's ripple, which you can't measure with a DMM. What's the PSU ?
  12. There was a brief YT review by Aris but no article yet, although from the video it sounded like Aris mostly liked the unit. It has problems with OTP (it's either set higher than 200°C making it essentially useless or doesn't work at all), and OPP (which is set way too high, especially for SFX PSU), but it's probably not a bomb, assuming you really need a SFX(-L) PSU with more than 750W then it should be fine.
  13. RM-x 850W is cheaper than ASUS version of Seasonic Focus Gold 750W ? And you're asking what's better ? RM-x obviously, even if they were the same price and wattage really.
