Always a good thing to check, seeing as you only have 2 slots. | Report abuse manapuaman September 1, 2011 3:04:51 AM Ahhh what mobo did you purchase? | Report abuse Related ressources $ 900ish budget .

The only junk Corsairs are the "Builder Series" which are manufactured by CWT. | Report abuse Kamab September 1, 2011 3:18:49 AM Corsair and Antec both make high quality PSUs.
