Good quality for the price

  • Summary: I have installed several of these as a replacement. They seem to be of good quality for the price. Either way, this is a great supply to replace the stock unit in most consumer grade computers.

Works fine but one problem

Brucerltr, TigerDirect.com
26 January 2014
  • Summary: The product has heavy fabric over all the cables. Looks good but that makes it a little harder to fit in some small places. I used it in a mini tower case and had to do some work arounds. I doubt it would fit in a micro case.

Good PS, poor cabling.

Bob P.,, TigerDirect.com
20 November 2013
  • Summary: Good small power supply for the money, I purchased the more expensive modular version so I could tidy up the cabling inside the case. Unfortunately the cables are just too short to reach the drive bays even in a mid tower case. I had to use the old 4 pin peripheral connectors with SATA adapters to reach the drives (looks awful!) On the other hand the 20+4 pin motherboard cable that only has to reach the motherboard socket is so long that you have to hide it somewhere.

Sort of Quiet but I've had quieter Power Supplies

xrjay7,, TigerDirect.com
17 August 2013
  • Summary: This my first alleged Green Power Supply (PS) at my home. Story: PS on my desktop PC stopped working. I borrowed a power supply from an old IBM desktop in my obsolete pile of PC's. Boy was that thing quiet. I wanted to try out a new energy-efficient PS and along comes Corsair with a $20 rebate. I replaced the old IBM PS with this new Corsair. The wires & connections are nice with amply number to power many peripherals.

  • Pros: Bonne marque., Bon manufacturier., Système de câblage modulaire., Câble modulaire plat et flexible., Emballage de qualité., Prix acceptable à 49.04$ en pricematch., Ventilateur silencieux., 80 Plus Bronze.
  • Cons: Rien à signaler.

  • Summary: I had to RMA the first one I received as the 4pin cpu connector didn't work. The leads all felt like they weren't making a really solid connection, but the second psu I received worked just fine, even if it was a little wiggly.
  • Pros: Quiet, Economical, Comes with tie downs
  • Cons: Connectors are a little cheap

  • Summary: So I needed a cheap and silent PSU for a small htpc and decided to go with corsair as I've never been disappointed by them before and once again they've done a pretty good job. PSU is silent and modular cables make a very clean build. If only they provided a second 6+2 pins cable for PCIE, but using 2 molex -> PCIE adapter does the job fine.
  • Pros: Dirt cheap, silent, modular
  • Cons: Missing second PCIE power cable
