I know this might be a bit of a silly topic to post, but how likely is it for a power supply to blow up, ignite, fail, etc? Why would these kind of things happen? Has anyone actually recieved a psu that was dead out of the box and wouldnt turn their PC on? I've seen alot of reviews describing these problems and I'm just pretty worried I guess. The ones in particular being Corsairs RM 2019 that I was going to get and a few other power supplies.
Any suggestions for a good, reliable power supply that is 650-750w, modular and around £100? I've already got the Corsair Rmx in my list. Is that ok? People also describe PSUs failing after the first few months rather than lasting 3-5 years as advertised. Why does this happen?
