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 ha...
Summary: Had to provide a stocked Power Supply so he could take his new PC home the same day.
Pros: Would most likely work if it would clip into the ATX socket
Cons: During a build using the Corsair CX750 Power Supply, I also discovered an issue with the ATX connector not seating on the board. I checked the length and width of the plug with digital calipers and compared the measurements with a power supply plug that connected to the board with ease. Dimension...
Doesn't look like this happens too often to others but it did ...

Summary: Loud Pop when we plugged up our computer and then nothing. Bought on sale for son's birthday when on sale for his custom build but unfortunately unable to return since it was more than a month since I bought. So Be SURE to use quickly and return if needed in a MONTH.
Cons: the 24 pin connecter doesn't plug into the socket of the mother board... yes, the most important plug doesn't work on this power supply. I will no longer consider Corsair for anything anymore, completely disgusted.
Summary: Would not recommend to anyone. I would ask for a refund, but now it's broken.
Pros: Price seemed right. Had the number of connectors I wanted for a build project and enough power output.
Cons: Snapped off clip on the main motherboard (24-pin) connector getting it to seat. I put more pressure on the connector to get it to seat than I ever have (and made sure that I braced the motherboard). In my 20+ years building computers, I have never seen a power supply with a connector fitment prob...
Summary: I've been waiting for 2 years to build a computer, now that I finally got the parts, I can't build it because Corsair messed up the main connector... bullcrap.
Pros: I can't tell, can't even get the 24 pin connector plugged in.
Cons: The CX series apparently is known for having connection issues for the 24 pin connector. I've tried wiggling it, pushing hard, but it just wont click in. Apparent;y I'm not the only one, if you look it up, a lot of others are having the same problem. I'm gonna give it another go and then RMA it i...
