All I need

Michael R., Newegg

  • 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.
  • Cons: Not modular, but I knew that going in.

Great Value

  • 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.

Works, what more can I say?

Drew J., Newegg

  • Summary: No matter what, You always get what you pay for. NEVER cheap out on a PSU. This is the very lowest I would ever pay when shopping for power supplies.
  • Pros: Good PSU for the money, and even though it is refurbished, you can tell they go through rigorous QA before they are sent out. Never had a problem with a refurb Corsair product.
  • Cons: none as of yet.

Good Value

  • 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

The CX430 M is NOT a modular power supply.

Gary Evans, Amazon
1 July 2015
  • 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...

Seems like a nice Power Supply

Stephen M., Newegg
30 June 2015
  • Pros: Supplys power to all components. Decent looking with nicely wrapped cables. I also oddly kind of like the smell. Sort of a new component scent too it
  • Cons: Only 1 4/6 pin connector so for some non reference cards you will need a adapter.

Unbelievable Bang for buck

gregory b., Newegg
28 June 2015
  • 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
  • Cons: Not modular!
