    Well that doesn't apply to me but at least they have identified there''s a problem and addressing it unlike NZXT's dangerous fudge on their cases.

    Have you watched the GN video's on that then, i did this morning and they have a point, that riser could so easily leave someone with a burnt up PC or worse a house fire.

    Yes , I watched it this morning as well. Hitting a few tech sites like most of do for reviews and comparisons that is now 3 company's in a row in a bad light. NZXT , Nvidea and Asrock.

    What happened with Asrock? You could add MSI on the list.

    Asrock got slated by Hardware Unboxed amongst others for their Z490 boards vrm's etc for being under powered and not even volting some stock chips but claiming good for overclocking. Hence a few well known Youtube reviewers also got blacklisted for the exposure , much the same as Nvidea's behaviour. I supose these companys don't really care as peeps will still buy their products even the crappy ones they sometimes put out , all money in the bank.

    This is going to bank em a LOT of good will, and I reckon the timing is probably on purpose due to the whole NZXT thing. Making people see this after seeing a bad company is going to make Corsair stick in their mind. Really clever if done on purpose. Obviously even if not it's still really good of em.

    Eww Corsair PSU's. Had 4 or 5 of them fail on me (in customer machines) back in the day. That, and some of them suffered horrible coil whine, which you couldn't RMA/replace them for, so I ended up forking the bill. Never again. * spit

    You should check reddit on this issue, there is a lot of people unhappy, I was considering a H510i Elite but now I'm seconding guessing whether I want to throw my money at this company.

    Did just that only to discover NZXT must have announced they're withdrawing the problematic cases from their stores and sending out redesigned risers for H1 case owners between when you posted that and now.

    Reminds me of the Whole Note 7 Fiasco, albeit on a smaller scale.

    I think Samsung came out exceptionally well from that particular issue.
