    PSU's are great but memory I don't think so. I'm with G.Skill or OCZ for memory.

    For their PSUs, they are overbuilt to Corsair's specs. They aren't 100% stock from the OEM.

    As far as their ram, they are overpriced for what you get, so I can't comment. G.Skill and Crucial have the same level of quality, yet are much cheaper, and I know the Crucial's RMA process is just as painless as Corsair, so you aren't paying extra for that.

    I prefer Mushkin or G.Skill RAM, but I can't deny that Corsair's PSUs (and the H50) are top-quality gear.

    Unbelievable, after screwing it with the Dominator series that where so crap they had to recall them and their PSUs that are 4th or 5th when it comes to RMA rate higher than Antec, Cooler Master and others they are still getting prizes?!
    Incredible, they arej just sticker makers, nothing more.

    But the thing is, with Corsair power supplies you'll never even have to RMA.

    never had to RMA an Antec. Also Great Ram doesn't need a ridiculous price tag either.

    everytime a truepower came back, the sticker said it was the same model, but listed amperages were different...

    PSU's are really great from low end up to the highest end. Prices are slightly higher than average, but they justify that with quality. Only fans used in their PSU's could be slightly better. I mean, paying extra 5-10 eur for high end super silent fan is no problem when you pay over 160 eur for a PSU. Fan rattling (clicking noise?) becomes really annoying if you have a silent PC setup.
    But still, power characteristics were always on the top.
