    I wouldn't be worried about it, perhaps the issue could be something else, since that the person said that he replaced the PSU and two PSU with issues? Obviously it is something else.
    A power supply will fail from the get-go Or, or, or, or.............could be one dumb mistake that I myself recently made. Insert the PSU upside down where the fan is facing upwards but got one of those dumb cases with a PSU Shroud and thus it's chocking the PSU.

    My system shut down twice, it went berserk 4 times but ONE day I noticed the PSU was overheating and I thought it was dying........but I turned it with the intake fan facing down and now it's been two weeks w/o a single issue or PSU overheating.

    I run PC in my sig on the 750W version of this unit. I would have gone 650W, but that version only comes with one EPS +12V connection and I need two for the 9900K.

    The 650W version? When I looked at the specifications it said it only had one EPS +12V connection. I'd be happy if I am wrong. The price difference was only $10 or $20 anyway, so it's no big deal.

    Multiple EPS 12V connections are almost universally superfluous on consumer motherboards. If you're just using ambient cooling, it's basically impossible to surpass the current that can be provided by a single EPS 12V connection.
