Ok people,

I was to buy an Corsair Hx1000W powersupply but after I saw this video I got very afaird. Bacause the contruction work is just very very bad. The soldering on it looks made by a 15 year old kid.

Just see:

The real video have 2:30min the rest is garbage.

(NOTE: LOWER YOU VOLUME AT THE BEGUINING)

The guy recomends an Enermax Revolution. Is as expensive as the Corsair, and just see the soldering quality in the other video:

Start watching at 0:45min



So People tell me what you think about this disapointing situation.

Thanks

to be honest, i believe that the video can be of any psu so i believe its fake as i havent heard any complaints from anyone about cosair psu's also they give you a 7 year warranty and im sure if they had soldering like the one in the vid they wount be confident in their product, so seen as they are i highly doubt there would be an issue. im using a hx 750w and im very pleased with it, its cool, its very quiet and also very efficient.

Yeah seems like a hoax to me, or atleast maybe an early production model, i have a HX1000 and its been very quiet, stable and just a kickass psu.

Is not Fake. Just see the first 2 Videos. About the Date of the Video is 2th September of 2009 ( a bit old yeah)





I would be very glad to be fake but I honestly dont think so.

Ah i see, well i wouldnt worry about it to much, if all the HX1000's in the world would have that poor job of soldering, we would know, but so far i havent seen anyone really complaign about their HX1000 with regards to a badly constructed product.

I think this must be a one in a million dud tbh. Corsair PSU's are normally so reliable and come with epic warranties as well. My HX850 has a 5 year warranty so it'll easily outlive all my current hardware.

I know a mate had a cheapo one and it took out his entire computer. But I thought the more premium supplies were meant to have safety features that limited damage to other parts? Or have been sold a pup there?
