Yup. Bad PSUs are the #1 cause for dead PCs. There should be some class action lawsuit against cr@p PSU manufactures. Not really surprised #2 is 1di0t errors.

I'm not surprised either. I'm actually surprised that crap PSU's haven't killed more PSU's.

I had a 650W Coolermaster next to my 750W Corsair and they never fought. Although, I haven't checked to see if my 650W works anymore. :(
