My corsair psu died last month, they don't last more than 8-10 years that's why the warranty is only 10 years. Replaced with an evga 1000w

Wouldn’t you want to replace every 8-10 years anyway. Chances are standards or requirements have changed over that time. Like when we went from molex to sata power, or from 4 pin to 8 pin for the cpu.
Hello I.T.
Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Back in "the day" we calculated a 10% loss in efficiency (and/or effective power O/P ) for every year of service. I suspect improvements in PSU quality over the years has affected that calculation, but for sure 10 yrs on a PC power supply is a point where a person should probably consider buying a new PSU in order to protect their hardware.

Same with mine, bought in 2009 and used daily, died in 2018. Lasted 2 builds, time for a new PC anyway since GPUs and mobos take 8 pin connectors now.

When you guys say your PSU dies, what are you referring to? The power supply doesn't turn on?

Usually yes, or system becomes unstable with blue screens, etc.

When the pc just turned off by itself w/o any user input, that's usually a telltale sign.

In my case my power supply started to hiss and there was an odd smell, I powered down my computer and found it was coming from the psu. Tried to start it after I disconnected it with just a fan hooked up, and it hissed, emitted a small puff of white smoke and shut off permanently.

Other times I've seen dying psus just crash the computer or turn off randomly, or after x minutes of runtime, or while running the CPU or GPU at load.

A good way to check is to monitor the voltages through your bios or through an app while running the computer, if any of the rails start dipping out of spec you have a bad psu.
