Default Thank You

I registered here just to say Thank you.
Thanks for posting this notice.
I had recently purchased a refurbished AX860i from a local supplier.
The AX860i worked well for a few weeks. But, then started to unexpectedly shutdown.
I emailed the support addressed mentioned in the OP and received a very timely response. I was sent a replacement PSU. The replacement PSU has been working perfectly so far.

Thanks again you for the excellent customer service.

Could this issue affect users of the AX760 as well? I've been having problems with shutdowns in games 2-3 seconds after the game level finished loading and I was into the actual game (not the menu) that started about 1 month ago and I've checked all other hardware items (temps, usages, etc) and the only things left are either the AX760 or Win10.

You mean AX760i or the AX760 (without "i")?

Normal AX760... the analog version. So without the "i".

Then no. That's a completely different platform.

Is there a list of tips for troubleshooting to address the issue?

After my replacement AX860i started failing after 15 months, I nominated to not proceed with another RMA and instead bought a competitor's PSU.

Cost to post the failed PSU from here was half what I paid for it and I just couldn't in good conscience keep throwing away good money after bad.

I've always bought Corsair, when I could afford it, for the quality. The AX860i has the potential to be a magnificent PSU but they seem to be inherently flawed. Perhaps too clever for their own good.

While I'm very happy with the PSU I ended up replacing it with, I'm still disappointed that my 'dream build' is no longer true to my design and I'm quite a bit unnecessarily out of pocket too. While I know the 12 year warranty this one came with is still hampered by the return cost, its rock-solid reliability has so far left me confident I won't need to call on it.

I would dearly love to be able to 'fix' my AX860i without having to send it back though...
