    I'm too late to advise but for future reference don't buy an XFX PSU. I've had two XFX Pro PSUs fail in 2 years due a faulty +5V standby output. I've now bought an EVGA PSU having a 10 year warranty.

    I still do not get your logic behind buying a 1000W PSU to think will last longer, i think for one it's how well the components are inside the PSU to make it last longer and keeping it clean and not overloading it. What Graphics card do you have, Jim ? Really feel need 83 amps on +12v rail ?
    Your choice i was just trying to understand and help.

    Hi jds63, there wasn't much logic behind it, just a seat of the pants executive decision. I don't think it will do any harm. It was in my budget. If I had spotted a modular 750, I probably would have went with it, but the 1000 was the lowest cost modular I found, and unfortunately I didn't wait for any advice. I just pulled the trigger. I don't have a high end graphics card, just 512Mb. My "System Specs" are now up to date. The ones that were there were for a different machine. Thanks for your concern.

    Hi Steve, Thanks for your input, but I don't know what an XFX is. Is that a nickname for Corsair?

    Your Welcome, there are 750W Full modular for less then RM1000 as for the one i showed i have. I understand you already purchased it and true does not matter, just explaining reasons of thinking not going to have issues because of more wattage. Good luck, i have had luck also with Corsair PSU's.

    XFX is a brand name. The XFX Pro PSUs I had were a supposedly reliable Seasonic design.

    Well, my new PSU arrived today. It was DOA. It only had one output voltage the+5VSB. Very disappointing.

    They're going to ship one right out, but they want me to pay the return postage on the bad unit. I should have returned it to NewEgg. They probably would ave paid the freight. Corsair also had me put up a credit card number to insure that I would send it back. Very poor customer service from Corsair.

    Very unfortunate, yes believe NewEgg would of paid postage to return it as i did this once with them and since under 30 days. Hopefully Corsair does not send you a refurb. sometimes common with these manufacturers.

    I just complained on their live chat line and the agent agreed to send me a prepaid label.

    Edit: They just notified me that they don't have the RM1000 in stock so they are going to upgrade me to the RM1000i

    Good work ! Thing i mentioned before was i had a Crucial SSD that went bad and was a year old. I had to pay to send it back to Crucial they paid the return, but in the return they sent a manufacturer refurbished item not brand new. I am not sure if Corsair would do that to you, but it is always best to send it back to seller if under 30 days as you will definitely get a brand new item back. Good luck Jim.
