I decided to go for an upgrade the other day an bought a Corsair TX650 and a GTX 560 ti 448. After installing both the system booted up and ran fine for about half an hour before the fan on the GTX started going crazy and then giving me a blank screen. I tried to reboot the system only to find the Corsair wouldn't power back up for me, lighting up the leds for a brief second before cutting out, so I switched my old PSU back in instead.
I've now also had to replace the graphics card with my old one since my old PSU isn't good enough to power it, and I'm just wondering what you think the issue might have been? I've been reading up and searching all night but couldn't find anything similar.
Is it a case of GPU overheating which for some reason buggered up the PSU, or is it simply a factory fault in the PSU?
Ok so I used the guide, thanks Rugger. Based on what you guys are saying plus the hours I've spent trawling the internet I think it probably is a faulty PSU, which is odd since Corsair are so renowned for their quality and reliability. Anyway, I'm going to organise and RMA via the retailer.
