the AX (non-'AXi) series should have gotten this warranty extension as well as they are identical to the AXi units except without the digital monitoring stuffs
They are actually a completely different OEM, design, and build. They are standard analog Seasonic PSUs while the AXis are digital Flextronics builds.

I agree that they should. But they are far from identical. Two different OEMs, two different PCB-layouts and components aswell as different fancurves.

Its also pretty meaningless given the fact that the vast majority of people who would even spend this kind of money on such a high end PSU will have changed all the components within their PC within 3yrs anyway.

Its a good way of improving the sales without it actually costing them anything.
Not this guy. I have 2-3 PSUs still in service (that aren't even platinum series) ranging up to about 9 years and don't plan on replacing them any time soon.

CapXon solid caps aren't near as good as other solid caps, but still beat most electrolytic caps. Considering they are apparently on the modular connector board (and thus rather similar in role to cable caps), I really doubt this is a design issue, just disheartening.
I tend to agree, the caps will be just fine most likely, but still, the original "inside" they bought for their product came with different caps, and then they went cheap (like how Kingston with the v300, etc).

Did they honor the RMAs? If yes, no problems, just bad luck.
Yes they replaced it after some weeks, but do you mean when I built two "very reliable and fast" systems (for people I care about a lot), and when those broke, it was "no problems, just bad luck."?

Ive never had a bad experience with Corsairs warranty department. Always have been quick and fair. Paying shipping or not even requiring returning of the parts that failed. Something not too many other companies can claim. And I have had more than one conversation with EVGA about shipping cost. Cheap bastards

The problems were with those particular units, not the entire Corsair lineup of everything they do, or even with those particular lines of PSU's. You might even say you had very bad luck, but given how much stuff Corsair sells ... they're doing ok, I assume. Personally I think most of their stuff is overpriced and I'm more than happy to use budget PSU's, but if I were to build a properly high end system I'd probably go for the RM650i, partly because of the warranty.

I agree it's a scummy move. Just sayin' the "will kill your computer" odds are still quite low. But as I originally called it, it's "disheartening" to see.

EVGA has been awesome with me, but maybe that's because they blew out my PCIe slots and their frickin own engineering department sided with me... kinda forced their hand. :laugh:
