24 pin will not connect.

Summary: If the 24 pin in it actually completely connected to the motherboard it would be a nice power supply. Looked around on the web and this is apparently a very common problem with corsair's power supplies. Tried every trick I could find to make it work but gave up. I'd rather get a different brand then risk hurting the motherboard trying to get this one to work. I would recommend steering clear of this product.
Summary: I bought this for my Backup Full Tower PC. No massive Power Hungry Parts to Feed. Just an old Radeon R6950 which needed two 6 Pin feeds, a 50 MB SSD and 2 TB HDD. The old 850 Watt supply made a Spit Sound and that was the end of it. I have had no issues with this new Corsair CX 750 Watt power supply. I will give Corsair a Shout Out for Extra Long 12 Volt CPU Cables.
Summary: About 3 months ago I purchased a completely new computer system and the Corsair CX 750 power supply was part of that purchase. Installation was a breeze into my Corsair case and like all of my other components it runs quietly. The modular connectors work great and unused connectors are safely stored away in my wires drawer only leaving the connectors I need plugged into the power supply for a clean installation.

Summary: I received this power supply thinking it was a good idea to go with a modular power supply so save space and provide better air cooling in my case. I looked at reviews and saw that there should not be anything to be worried about and i thought corsair would be a good brand to go with. I was very wrong. I first received it and it worked okay i have been building computers for almost four years now and this is my first modular higher end power supply.
Great PS at an affordable price. Go Corsair, go modular and you'll never go back!

Summary: I did a lot of research anticipating to build a new gaming computer. Then the power supply on our old desktop box unexpectedly died. Or maybe not so unexpectedly as it was showing signs of failure for a couple of months beforehand. I was happy to discover that the Corsair CX PS was on sale, so I happily ordered a 750 watt modular unit. It was super-easy to install and with help from my 11 year old son, we restored power to our old desktop PC in short order.
Summary: I absolutely love this power supply. Worth every penny. I bought another one about 2 years ago for another desktop that I was building and it's still going strong. No issues at all. Pros: Super super quiet. Hardly notice it running. Modular system makes cable routing a dream. No extra cables to wrestle with. More then enough power for a decent computer build. Cons: None.
Summary: Nice, and I got a great price. I like the modular approach. One note for people upgrading from, say, a 300-Watt: make sure your motherboard will accept the 12-V ATX 2x4 plug (some only have a 2x2 (four pin) connector). If in doubt, you can crack your case and see where your current power supply connects to the mother board (it connects in a couple of places).
Summary: Bought this as a replacement for my sons computer power supply that literally blew up. We had built the system about a year ago and had scrimped on the power supply. This one is so much quieter and plenty of reserve power for his gaming system.
Summary: This power supply is well build, simple to install, and has a large number of power outputs. It uses a single 12v rail which is absolutely fine in a quality product. It is Bronze rated for efficiency which is good for the price. A solid warranty and Corsair's reputation are other upsides. It should be good enough for most performance builds - many people over-spec their PSUs to over 1000W which is usually unnecessary.
Summary: Great PSU, My old one pretty much ran out of connectors, this one I only have half the cords plugged in and have plenty of plugins left. When I play a more intense game the fan kicks on and is probably a little louder than my old one. My old psu had the power output potential, but lacked enough connectors and was an older model (I had to make due with an adapter for my graphics card *GASP*).
