Is Corsair good for everything that they sell? PSU, RAM, etc.

By which I mean, would buying mostly Corsair parts be a bad idea more so than it would be a good idea?

This is primarily for a PSU, but I was considering some RAM as well.

Also, when is it overkill when it comes to a PSU? 1000W?

I have a Corsair PSU and RAM and have no issues with them. The same can't be said for the headphones and keyboard I own though.

I can vouch for their PSU. Very good

Never seen a Corsair product that wasn't at least decent at least as far as main components go. Their cases are all great, their PSUs up till now have been solid and their RAM is quite good.
If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.

I have RAM, PSU, and SSD from Corsair. All work with no issues. Those devices are more "it works or it doesn't" type of parts.

Yes. Corsair has used at least passable OEMs for all of their products so far.

Corsair's products are usually decent, but not the best.

I was pretty bummed to learn recently that their high end cases use plastic with aluminum accents to make them look nice :/

Which Motherboards are most compatible with Corsair products, and which Motherboards are the most stable overall? I'm talking brand names.

I had a great HX650 v1 before which is why I got the HX650 again.

Their newer PSUs aren't as good. You can search coil whine with corsair and will see what I mean. I RMA'd two HX650 V2 so far. Getting offered to swap to a different brand now.
