As a quality parts brand name I expect Corsair to fully back the affected units. That's why I buy their products.

Is it just me or is Corsair's quality going down hill recently?

Hey, I'll tell you what. You can get a good look at a butcher's ass by sticking your head up there. But, wouldn't you rather to take his word for it?

"I can take a crap in a box and stick a warranty label on it. All it means is you have a guaranteed piece of crap."

Good for Corsair to make right on their products. Some other un-named companies would rather give out plastic bumpers as a free bonus item, rather than admist there is a problem.

I think the products that Corsair puts its logo on are great. They typically just work... I'm glad to see that in this instance as in times before when there is a problem with a product of theirs the biggest concern for them isn't, "How much money will we be losing?" They are concerned more with maintaining their well earned reputation.

This really isn't a Corsair issue, as much as it being a Sandforce issues. The Sandforce 2200 controllers have been having issues with random BSOD across suppliers (OCZ, Corsair... Etc.). I'm not sure I would hold it against them on the SSDs.

I'm the same. I bought a tx750 psu about 2 years ago and when it died 2 months ago, it was a hassle free RMA. The unit they sent back was the V2 so they even gave me the new upgraded version.

Still for sale up at Newegg. I was prepared to buy an H100 this week actually for my new computer build. This has made me somewhat nervous. I suppose I can always get a new one should I get a bad one, but the idea of RMAs and all that other stuff makes me wanna reconsider just getting a Hyper EVO for just the idea of not having to worry. I suppose Ill wait to see if Newegg pulls their products or not by midweek.

I stopped by my local Micro Center to find three of these on the shelves. So the nice guy I am, I brought it to their attention & recommend reviewing Tom's & contacting Corsair.

Its still a Corsair issue. if they'd had tested the SF controller properly and comprehensively they WOULDN'T have used it in its current state.

I purchased the H100 just the other day, and indeed did get one from this lot AND it does have a bad controller. I sent an email to Corsair a couple of minutes ago. I trust they will rectify the issue.

On another note, my new i5-2500k (still stock speed) has been on for over 72 hours straight with probably 10 hours of gaming and Folding for the remainder of the time and its sitting at 45 C :)

Actually in the pic all that sticks out is the "Made in China". Well, all the major electronic companies are having their stuff made there now, but, QC has always been an issue with the Chinese, even in their own indigenous products (if there are any other than Tofu) their quality has always sucked and I guess will always. But in today's markets, it's pot luck, you get a product and there's no chance that it's not been to china.

Or maybe the store manager hasn't gotten an email or phone call telling him there's a recalled product on his shelf. It usually takes about 24 hrs for that kind of thing to go through and reach the person who actually removes the product form the shelf.

This isn't a code red OMG it's gonna kill the computer emergency recall though. Good that corsair is willing to take these products back. I'm seriously considering this setup, glad I didn't jump on it just yet.
