Is this something to be alarmed about? Score 0 Best solution WR2 a c 139 ) Power supply August 11, 2010 3:12:42 PM Not at all. CWT made the PSU to the specifications Corsair ordered. If there was a performance or quality issue with the Corsair 550VX it would have long ago been noticed by the independent reviewers.
