  1. Hi, I got a RM650x from Newegg.ca on Mar '19 (refurbished). In Mar of 2021 it died by leaking transformer fluid out the bottom. It has served me well since then in a gaming Rig with a single graphics card (asus RX580 dual) and I considered the psu good quality - 80plus gold, fully modular, etc. However, I didn't expect any power unit to fail by leaking transformer fluid so I wanted to bring this to your attention. Attached is a photo of my gaming computer and the fluid leaking out of the unit. There was more fluid on the floor below the case as well, and it started to crackle a bit when plugged in and smelled like electrical things were burning. Cooler master power supply calculator estimates that this system uses 371W at peak, so it's definitely not straining the psu in this system. Corsair is great quality gear and I don't think I abused it in any way, so I wanted Corsair to know that this one failed in this strange manner. It gave me a black screen but looked like the system was on so I assumed it was the graphics card. Swapped the graphics card and in the process realized that the black screen was likely the psu failing instead. I wanted Corsair and the community to know about the psu failing like this, because it's disappointing with a quality part like this, and I was actually surprised that it had fluid in it. Laszlo Toth
