Works fine, watch connectors for 6 year old computer

Kevin Stratton, Amazon
1 January 2015
  • Summary: Power supply works 100% with my computer for several days (includes sleep/wakeup operation). I needed an adapter cable for the four pin 12V power connector near the microprocessor. If this is for a computer that is 6+ years old (or so), be aware of this issue. For reference: Motherboard: Asus M2N-E Processor: AMD Phenon quad core 3.1Ghz (I think it is 95W) Video card: Dual output, low cost, do not know brand.

Great, but be ready for molex.

  • Summary: I purchased this PSU to power my system, a Pentium G3258 @ 4.2Ghz, r9 270x, 1tb HDD, and some fans and it's been great. More quiet than the CPU or GPU when it gets going, it's one of the best budget PSU's with modular cabling. One reason I docked it a star is the lack of a 2nd PCI cable; I've been using adapters since I hooked up the GPU, but I'd rather just have the connections and overhead so I'm replacing this one with the 500w model.

A good basic but reliable power supply

Mr Baz, Amazon

  • Summary: I've used a few of these power supplies going back a few years now. To date I've not had any issues with any of them. The newer version got uprated to 80+ bronze (v normal 80+) This version is the same as the normal CX 430 model but has modular cables which can be quite useful esp if you are tight on space or want better airflow Pros: + Good price & performance + Fairly quiet (it's not silent but very little noise from the unit- variable speed fan) + 80 PLUS Bronze...

Damaged PSU

Ronnie Dhanoolal "Ron", Amazon
8 November 2014
  • Summary: On opening the package there was a distinctive burning smell but I thought to myself it was nothing, after hooking up all components and powering on only to find out nothing was coming on. The amazon packaging came in excellent condition, on further inspection I discovered an indentation on the back meshing of the unit and the four pin connector smelling burnt. As a fan of corsair I am VERY disappointed after I spent $50.00. Its nothing more than a paper weight now.

Honest review --- good information for system builders

SpiderCraved, Amazon
8 October 2014
  • Summary: I didn't really like this PSU, but to be fair please look below at what my system consisted of while using this component. My biggest issue with this unit is the amount of heat it produced at almost all times and especially under full load. There are enough connectors to hook up a simple system with not very many components but not enough for a heavier build. Other then the heat this unit produces I don't really have any complaints though.

The power supply works great and is very quiet

Kindle Customer, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: I downsized my power supply from 750 watts to 430 watts modular to make room in my case and to save electricity. My computer is on most of the day and it was using electricity at a high rate the first electricity bill, after installing the Corsair 430 was $10.00 a month less than usual. The power supply works great and is very quiet. I will recommend to friends.

Decent.

Andrew, Amazon

  • Summary: Great power supply, sure the power is good based on some of the reviews I read and I trust it with my parts. I don't like that all of the old style power connectors are on a completely separate chain. Adding a mixed chain with both sata and traditional molex would prevent me from having to use all the connections which is sort of the point of modular to begin with. Other than that fine product.

  • Summary: great for basic build, will be more than suitable for any office, home computer, home theatre pc, or etc. bought about 10 of them now? all worked so far. if your in for budget gaming, the best graphics card you can plug this in with is perhaps the gtx 750 ti. but really, go for like a 600w. if you can get it on sale with the rebate, its only a little more anyways.
  • Pros: cheap, working rebate, works great
  • Cons: its not free
