Corsair issued a recall of SF series power supplies manufactured between October 2019 and March 2020. These units have a defect that can result in premature failure when the PSU is exposed to high temperatures and high humidity.

The problem potentially affects units in lot codes 194448xx to 201148xx. Corsair believes not every SF PSU manufactured between October 2019 and March 2020 is affected, but it's recalling the entire lot code range out of cautiousness.

Fortunately, the issue affects the primary side of the PSU so if things work well a failure shouldn't take out the rest of your PC.
This problem can be apparent as soon as the unit is powered on for the first time, or manifest over time as the unit is exposed to a range of environmental conditions. We want to reassure customers that impacted units in no way risk damage to the components and hardware connected to your SF series PSU. This fault can occur only on the primary side of the PSU and is entirely isolated from the DC side of the PSU’s transformer that delivers power to your PC’s hardware.

While this issue does not, and will not, impact every unit manufactured within this time, out of an abundance of caution and commitment to the quality of the SF-Series, we are starting a voluntary product replacement program for owners of SF PSUs within this lot code range.
Details can be found on the Corsair forum.
