Summary: I hope that CORSAIR can help me out with my issue, really disappointing about the life span.
Pros: Very cheap power supply. worked for 6 months. Was my first time building a computer and it met all of my requirements.
Cons: Bought this power supply 5/13/2014. My computer would power off after an 1-4 hours. So I ran a couple of test on my PC. When I ran Prime95 and FurMark at the same time my PC crashed instantly. I knew this was a psu issue as soon as it happened because I ran these two test separately before and had no issue.
Summary: I guess you get what you pay and now I'm suffering from it. At first it was great , but on 3/21/2015, ordered it on 12/11/2014, it started exhibiting the behavior of an old PSU I had: it would not power the motherboard unless it was completely shut off from the electrical socket then reattached. I thought it would be enough for a phenom ii x2 545 + 750 ti since it was low budget, but I should of known QC on lower end aren't that great and now I'm paying for it.
Summary: My computer started freezing on me when playing games and I'd have to restart. I thought it was my video card so I borrowed a friends older card and at first that seemed to help. Then I recently bought a new video card and once again I started getting the occasional crash. After awhile it got worse and worse and would crash more often. Then finally it got to the point where my computer would just completely turn off.
Pros: Usually a dependable trusted brand. Solid construction. Nice big fan, good air flow. Solid black looks nice and stealthy. Good price.
Cons: Unusable at just over 1 year and difficulty with the product during that year.
Summary: This psu is in two builds now and both are running strong. There is plenty of cable to reach even most full tower cases. Also I'm not sure who said that there isn't a 4 pin 12v cpu power connection but that's not true. In fact they are required to have them in EVERY power supply. This one just happens to be an 8pin that you can divide.
Pros: - Runs perfect - Quiet - Correct voltages - Matches my case theme - It's Corsair
Cons: Not really a con but it's not modular but I knew that when I bought it.
Summary: 600w seems odd but after thinking about it, it is the perfect size for the any-man. I'll never be running dual video cards that require more than an 8-pin each. No CPU I can afford runs above 150w. What is a Tesla? ect... buy it. This PSU will run a computer and do it well for several years. Buy it if you found this page by imputing specs.
Pros: Usable PSU with most/too much of what you need. Excellent price from a great company. Failed none of the testing I personally, or my company does.
Cons: Non-modular :( Box was green and white, wish there could have been a little blue thrown in.
Summary: It's a PSU, not much else to say. I trust corsair a lot so that's also why I bought it. I also recommend you buy NEW units, not refurbished ones.
Pros: Able to power up all of my units and still had many left-over connectors for future use. Low power usage. Excellent PSU for a GOOD (not High-End) gaming build.
Cons: The thick cables and the excess amount of leftover connectors gave me a hard time cable managing. Not that big of a deal if you can make use of the space you have efficiently; I'm a first-timer here and I was able to adjust to my case's space.
