    Seasonic is an OEM.

    Corsair, Antec etc are not.

    Depending what model of corsair you buy it may be a seasonic with cheaper components or some other OEM.

    You should always check who really makes your PSU so you dont get crap componentry.

    I don't know about that... EVGA ha been impressing me with their PSUs every time I work with them. They are expensive though, but oh so worth it in my opinion. Maybe Seasonic are awesome too, I don't know, but I definitely have nothing bad to say about EVGA yet.

    Corsair on the other hand... I've been getting some bad luck with them lately.

    One of my mates works in one of the largest computer stores in AUS.

    Corsair PSU's flood the warranty dept.

    EVGA's are mostly made by HEC and a couple other OEM's.

    The EVGA Supernova GS PS is made by Seasonic.

    I've been unknowingly buying the Super Flower ones.

    Also, that doesn't surprise me about Corsair flooding the warranty department.

    I recently bought a Corsair RM750x, primarily because of the ten year warranty. You guys are making me have 2nd thoughts...

    The issue with Corsair, is that most people go cheap and buy bronze. Bronze level units fail pretty regularly. If you get gold or higher, it's not a problem. This is a fact that is commonly left out of the types of information similar to what DUST2DEATH provided above.

    Pretty much.

    You never want to skimp on the PSU.
    It powers all your components.

    A good PSU if it fails will generally kill itself.
    A bad PSU if it fails will kill your Mobo/CPU etc.
