Summary: Luckily Newegg is sending me a replacement
Pros: works well when it works.
Cons: ive had this power supply for 3 weeks and i turned it on this morning and the fan was hitting the grill on the bottom. so now i have to wait a week or more for a replacement. not cool corsair not cool at all.

Summary: The performance of this PSU is solid, and it gets the job done. However, when under load, the coil whine/buzz that the CX series creates is just ridiculous. I ordered a replacement PSU thinking I received a bad unit and nope; when under load, it sounds like there is an airplane flying by.
Pros: Cheap. 3 year warranty if your willing to wait for the replacement while sitting on your thumbs.
Cons: I'll keep this simple. I'm a mechanical engineer. I treat my electronics 100 percent how they are supposed to be handled. This power supply failed 15 days after the 30 day return period on New Egg. Ruined my day and cost me 125 dollars when I had to run out to the store to buy a new power supply....

Pros: It was good when I first had it for about 4 months.
Cons: Oh, where do I begin.... First, It isn't reliable at all. I've had my custom pc for about a year and this was the first part to give out. It's sad because this was supposed to be a good psu. Secondly, the wiring is atrociuous. Good luck with cable management Thirdly, it'll just restart your compu...
