Just a quick word of warning that Corsair has issued a recall of a number of HX1200 and HX1200i power supply batches. The manufacturer warns affected units may fail to POST with some motherboards. Corsair claims there is zero risk of any damage to end-user hardware, it is merely a compatibility issue.

Affected models have lot codes 2030XXXX to 2041XXXX, these were sold after July 20th, 2020.
End users with HX1200 and HX1200i power supplies in the affected lot codes may contact CORSAIR customer support directly to arrange for an advanced replacement unit. However, as there is zero risk to hardware, and the problem will present immediately or shortly after installation, we are choosing not to issue a full recall at this time.

How to read CORSAIR lot codes:
YYWWXXXX
2030XXXX

YY = Year = 2020
WW = Week = 30th week (20 Jul)
XXXX = Manufacture code
Details about the recall can be found at Corsair's forum.
