Works, what more can I say?

  • 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.

Seems like a nice Power Supply

Stephen M., Newegg

  • 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.

great psu

  • Summary: comes with all the connectors you would ever need for your standard build. runs very cool and quiet for the some 60% load i put on it. other then the sata power cable problem this thing is perfect.
  • Pros: 80+ 430watt for half a hundred $usd big rails, and quiet operation.
  • Cons: - all the cables are bulky and hard to bend. - not really a con, its expected @430watts, theres no 2nd pci-e pwr connector. **the sata power cables are too spaced out, when trying to install a single sata line for 2 harddrives the force of the cable alone might be enough to SNAP the connector off...

Mine came dented

Scott S., Newegg
27 May 2015
  • Summary: The truth is, if you are building a machine with a 430W PSU, you are not exactly building the most high-end computer anyway. So, if there is a bend on the rear side of the PSU, you tend to just let it go. Its a cosmetic flaw on a low-end (but otherwise quality) PSU.
  • Pros: Partial modular. Corsair brand is known for quality. Solid feeling component. Length of cables worked out well in a sizable tower. Workhorse PSU for workhorse, everyday rig.
  • Cons: The back panel was dented inward quite a bit, but the packaging looked perfect. That tells me this one slipped out of the factory in a damaged state and this cannot be blamed on the warehouse or package carrier. I expect better from Corsair, but the damage did not effect the ability of the device...

Decent but not for serious gaming

Mark G., Newegg
19 April 2015
  • Summary: I bought this thinking I wouldn't need much buffer room on my 12v rail. But times change and I found this PSU lacking. If you just have 1, low power, graphics card or use your processors graphics out then it'll work fine.
  • Pros: This PSU did what was required it for a year. It's marginally quiet and I never had issues. It powered a 175w graphics card fine with 1x 6 pin connector.
  • Cons: But then my graphics card died for unrelated reasons and the RMA replacement required 200w and 2x 6 pin connectors. Even though this Corsair PSU says it can supply 35 amps on the 12v rail it really can't. It isn't enough.

Good but needed to mod a bit a SATA power cable...

Alberto Dominguez-Gonzalez, Amazon
8 April 2015
  • Summary: I used to this PSU to replace an old one and so far (6 months) it has been working good... The only con is that the SATA power cables have the connections to far from each other... What I did is that I bought more connectors and add them as they suit me.

Best price for a modular PSU that "does that job" ...

Jacob Reed, Amazon
1 April 2015
  • Summary: Best price for a modular PSU that "does that job" and doesn't get too loud. Only issue I had was actually plugging the thing into my motherboard! EXTREMELY tight fight (seriously thought I was going to snap my motherboard in half).

Workhorse

Anonymous, Newegg
26 March 2015
  • Summary: Price varies a bit, catch it on sale with the $20 rebate and it's hard to beat. Currently in use on a i7 Haswell mini-ITX, Asus MB, 16G, 1 optical, 2 SSD, 1 HD in a Coolmaster Elite 130, not oc'd, stock cooling.
  • Pros: For small, medium/low power/cost builds these have been great. Semi-modular. Quiet, yet runs cool. My rebate came through, yes that's a plus.
  • Cons: None, ... really. Did not come with all cables in the lengths and configurations I wanted - waaah!
