Is the Corsair unit a VS series one per chance?
If so, they're are poor quality budget line PSUs.

So it runs absolutely perfectly with the Zebronic? No issue at all?
Could be pot luck that you've received a faulty PSU in replacement. Did the replacement PSU come shrink wrapped and compeletely unopened?

VS series are in history the cause of many problems, apparently they have newer models that are an improvement, but they are a budget line non-the-less. There is a misconception that a big brand means its good quality, which isn't true.

If another PSU works perfectly fine, then it probably is just the other PSUs are faulty. Which I've seen quite a bit in VS series PSUs.

Just I would stick to good quality units going forward! The Zebronics still probably poses a risk too.

Thanks for replying
So if I will replace it 2nd time there are any chances that it will work? Or it's a compatiblity issue?
Shouldn't be a compatibility issue with PSUs, they're all ATX standardised (outside of manufacturers proprietary ones).

Yes there are chances it will work, however again, if it were me, I'd upgrade to a better quality unit than the VS series anyway. But if you contact Corsair and let them know, they have great support.

If it works perfectly with another PSU, it can only be your original PSUs to blame really.

What does your VS450 look like?

Like this:



Or like this:



And who did you exchange the PSU with? Corsair directly or some reseller?
