Default Please be aware of how long your PSU mounting screws are!!

At Corsair, we've seen a number of "dead" PSUs returned to us that have been mounted to the chassis using screws that are much longer than what's included with the PSU. This has either caused damage to internal components of the PSU or a short against the heatsink inside the PSU.

We're still investigating which recent chassis are shipping with unusually long screws, including Corsair's own product. In the meantime, we ask that only the screws included with the PSU are used, or, use special attention to make sure the non-Corsair PSU mounting screws you plan to use are not longer than the screws that come with your PSU.

Attached are some pictures of PSUs damaged by longer mounting screws.
