Hi guys, my PSU Corsair CX600 just died on me, and it's just 1.5 years old. What is the most reliable PSU? The 650W ones. I need recommendation. Here is my rig:

ASUS M4A77TD Motherboard
Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 GPU
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Processor
8GB Corsair's RAM (already forgot the series)
Windows 7 64bit

Thanks in advance. :)

My recommendation is to RMA it with Corsair; it has a 5yr warranty.

Your PSU is electrically sufficient for your build and has sufficient connectors; since it is still under warrannty it simple makes more sense to have the mfr replace it...unless you've done something to void the warranty. How do you know the PSU is dying or has died? (i.e. how are you testing the PSU)

V1 or V2? I believe that the V1 had issues among the Builder's Series.

Okay, I'm not gonna lie; I HAD a..."rocky" experience with Corsair CX600 since I bought it. On it's first 7 month, I had RMA it to the shop's twice. Still no luck, I decided to RMA it to Corsair once. Then it worked until now.

By "dying"...I mean it's doing boot loop every time I turned on my PC. Sometimes it got into windows. But when I did ANY activity (ie. games and even browsing) it will automatically reset itself and usually BSOD if I force it to pass BIOS screen by resetting it over and over. :( 

I don't know if it's v1 or v2, but I am tired of it and wanted to get a new one. There goes my SSD plan *sigh*

Hmm...I'll be more specific, I want a PSU (600W will suffice; 650W is preffered) that is reliable known here on tomshardware & modular & below $150. What are your recommendations? Thanks again. :)

What are the BSOD error codes? Do you have a site that we can take a look to make recommendations?

I have a Seasonic X660 which is powering a phenom quad core and 560ti 448 core. in fact it ran 2 cards at stock speeds. ive read bad things about the CX600, but i also have a CX500 which has never given me any problems. You can RMA it if you want. I'd say a TX650 would be better.
