Summary: I feel much better about using a brand name PSU w/ 3 year warranty than just getting a generic one. My after rebate price was so low, this was an easy choice.
Pros: VERY inexpensive with rebate (twenty bucks). Seems to be of good quality. Didn't need anything bigger for my system, even if I add a reasonable graphics card later (total draw at full load now only about 100W). Cables have plenty of length to reach everywhere they need to go.
Summary: Someone needs to start a list of the SATA cable orientation of power supplies. I'll start , Corsair CX430 - Bottom of case mount
Pros: First off, I didn't buy this from Newegg. Normally I would have but there is a reason I chose to go to a retail store for it. I needed a power supply to mount in the bottom of the case AND HAVE THE SATA CABLES PROPERLY ORIENTED. I was able to inspect the unit in person. Happily, I can report that...
Cons: No cons except maybe the SATA cable orientation information could have been listed on the box so I wouldn't need to upset the store by unboxing right there.
Summary: The low watt rating for this power supply will work well for a number of machines; particularly ones without high-end graphics cards. Because it provides so few watts this will not provide adequate power to a build with high-end, high-power-consumption parts.
Pros: low price 80+ bronze Used this in a build recently for a work computer, used primarily for word processing and programming. For this purpose, this power supply works great!
Cons: not modular; can't complain for the price though
I'm a fan of corsair but I'm totally disappointed because such failures are irrevocable for such prestigious company

Summary: Corsair power supply damaged !!! at the beginning it worked correctly, after five minutes I started to generate strange sounds on the ventilator and then began to fade continuously, then it was turned on and continuously and no longer to do extinguished, but the source is not doing its job as it...
Summary: This is NOT a modular power supply, as implied by the M, or as described in the title, or as written on the box. It is partially modular in that there are four plug-in cables for power applications, I mod most of my builds so this would have gone back were it not for the fact that this is a small...
Summary: Unbelievable bang for buck, especially with the $20 rebate currently offered. I was going to pick up a cheap generic power supply for a low cost build, however decided on this as it was a ridiculous price. 430W, single 12v rail, 3 year warranty.
Pros: Corsair build quality 80 plus bronze rating Single 12v rail Quiet 3 year warranty
