Regular TR readers know that a solid power supply is essential to a successful PC build. Spending a bit extra on that little black box can net you a unit that will last you a couple of builds, or in some cases, a decade. To make sure that its high-end PSUs stay in service that long, Corsair is extending the warranty on its AXi, HXi, RMi, and RMx power supplies to 10 years.
This puts the peripheral and component vendor in rarefied territory shared only with EVGA, who also offers a ten-year warranty on its top-end units. Most of the popular high-quality PSU vendors—including Seasonic, Antec, and Thermaltake—offer a seven-year warranty on their top-end products.
The warranty extension affects not only new sales, but also past purchases dating back to the AXi range's introduction in 2012. Note that this extension does not include the standard AX, HX, or RM series units. No extra registration or other action is required to claim the extended warranty period.
