    Yeh, I noticed this. Didn't get it with my big order a few days ago, did get it with a much smaller order yesterday. So I think it may be a bit buggy!

    Over the past ten years I've had 4 in my primary desktop. the corsair replacement was a misdiagnosed PSU issue.
    I've had about 4 builds across 2 cases.
    C2D, C2Q, i7 950, i7 3770k
    OCZ, Seasonic, and Corsair.

    For my next refresh, which is getting near I think/hope, I'll probably keep my PSU.

    For others, it's been usually, well this is old as hell, I'll replace it just because I can get a new one that's decent for the price, see my old Dell Dimension 2400, that now has a Gold-rated corsair modular PSU.

    I replace the PSU when I replace everything else. And I only do new builds when I really have to. Only had one PSU die, and it had the good graces to die in storage.
