Yeah they did. I did some reading last month because I had to buy parts for my bro's computer.Didn't they change OEMs on a lot of their power supplies? I think the CX PSUs were affected (I think Great Wall makes them now, or at least the newer ones instead of SeaSonic).
Going for that SeaSonic next time.
Also black screens are still happening once in awhile. Not sure if it's my SSD. Shouldn't be since the connection is clean and the connector is in completely. Not the CPU either since I've never gotten near the shutdown temperature. Might be the PSU...hm...
But yeah, some early CX models were seasonic rebrands. Not anymore, now they are some generic rebrand.
Black screen as in BSOD doesn't even happen? In that it just shuts down?
I mean it could be your SSD possibly. SSD's are known for having problems sporadically. They still are 'kinda' new in a sense and have sporadic failure rates from what I can tell. Even those with 'good' brands and controllers. It's harder to tell if an SSD is failing I believe because you can't just look at its SMART data and reallocated sectors like an HDD to tell.
