    Although Corsair generally has a reputation as a top-notch
    supplier of computer power supplies, it seems they didn't get
    things quite right with their "Builder" series CX*** models. They
    supply good clean outputs but there are several accounts of early
    failures.

    I have personally come across two faulty units with similar
    symptoms - one 500W and one 430W unit. They turn on with light
    loads with all voltage rails within specs but cannot boot up a
    computer even with all drives and add-on cards removed. The first
    one was a customer's that died within 6 months and the second was
    DOA. Has anyone here found a common design flaw and/or know of a
    source for the schematic?

    They may or may not have been caught by the recent big wave of counterfeit
    electrolytic capacitors.
