Can happen to anyone, but low end corsairs and in some eeries, even high end ones can have some iffy capacitors in them. This continued for times until I heard a loud pop along with spark inside the PSU.
A few days back, I switched on my computer perfectly fine even 8 hrs back and found that it is shutting off after 1. I think in most cases, it is. Will be returning it tomorrow. But just a few days ago I turned my computer on and the power supply just burnt out, burning out my motherboard too.

GS corsair is a discontinued series, however a good one. That would void the warranty. My system hasn’t crashed under load yet so I can safely say that the PSU is delivering stable amounts of power.

CORSAIR – PSU Review Database
Corsair makes some iffy capacitor choices but also is good at designing circuits in such a way that usually, they aren’t stressed enough for it to matter. The light has a choice of 3 colours Blue, Red and Green and is changed by pressing a button on the PSU, it’s bright enough to illuminate the entire inside of the case.
So, this may have been a rare circumstance but i wouldn’t recommend buying the Gamer series PSU’s. Anyone sdries a gaming case has a bottom mounting PSU meaning the light faces down and you cannot see it so thats totally pointless.
