Corsair rebate denied

Harald N., Newegg
17 May 2015
  • Pros: Looks to be stable PSUs - I have three Corsair PSUs now running in my different systems. Efficiency good - doesn't draw more power from the circuit than the PC actually need.
  • Cons: Main power connector to the motherboard is always impossible to insert completely and may not go far enough to lock into place. Bought this model since it was tagged with a mail-in rebate at Newegg. Corsair denied the rebate claiming it was the wrong UPC, however everything was mailed in correctl...

3 Months in and signs of dying

Mareon B., Newegg
22 March 2015

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.
  • Pros: -Cheap
  • Cons: -cheap

24pin

Benjamin M., Newegg
30 November 2014
  • Summary: I'll update this review after I actually complete the build. Still waiting on my case.
  • Pros: Got everything I need for a cheap gaming computer. But this is really about the 24 pin connector
  • Cons: Just a heads up to anyone that might try to pair the CX-430 with the MSI A78M-E45. I bought this and the MSI A78M-E45. The 24 pin connector from the CX-430 was very difficult to get in. I probably shouldn't have put it in with the amount of force it took. I did test the 24 pin slot with two other...

  • Pros: 1-nice price (net of $20 rebate) 2-attractive appearance 3-low RPM 120mm fan 4-functional on at least one ATX motherboard with multicore CPU 5-80 Plus 6-quiet 7-3 year warranty
  • Cons: 1-pin 20 (of 24) has no wire or connector 2-misshapen (non-rectangular) exterior places PS mount holes for screws out of alignment with those in the case.

Decent.

Andrew, Amazon
30 July 2014
  • 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.

Do not buy this product

Ed,, TigerDirect.com
7 June 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this item to replace a defective one for one of my customers. Upon connecting all the connectors and verifying every connector was where it should be, I turned the desktop PC on. First thing I heard was a loud crack and then sparks came shooting out of the PS.

Works, but noisy fan

Robert D., Newegg
25 May 2014
  • Summary: If I knew it would be this noisy, I would have went with another card.
  • Pros: It's a power supply. Handles all of my power-needing things.
  • Cons: The fan is kind of annoying. Slightly not annoying enough to warrant a RMA.

  • Excerpt: Выбирал родственникам по причине падений напряжений до 190В зимой между Aerocool Strike x500, но от последнего отказался из- за посредственного вентилятора.
  • Pros: Автовольтаж 110-220В. Комплект шпажек для крепления лишних проводов.....
  • Cons: 1.Цена ОЧЕНЬ завышена. 2.Даже в дневное время в простое компьютера вентилятор тарахтит как маленький дизель уже с расстояния в 50см, воздушный поток при этом мал. Сам блок питания слегка греется. 3.Жесткие кабели - жестче чем на XILENSE spq650
