Summary: Perfect power supply for reliable low-end builds. Would not drive more than 60% rated power through one as they tend to get warm and loud after that. Stick with a GTX 950/R7 370 or less when using this PSU.
Pros: - Reliable. After using 500+ of these only 1 was DOA, and one other died within a month. - Quiet. Silent really. - Outstanding cable length. These will fit most ATX cases without extension cables. - Build quality A++
Cons: - Connector tolerance is very very tight. Some boards require a large amount of rocking and force to get 24-pin and 4+4 connectors to seat. - Only 2 SATA power on 2 cables. Would like to see more SATA and less LP4 molex.
Summary: I was wrong when I said dead on arrival. I swear I can be a complete idiot sometimes. in my setup, my school, and gaming desk is a corner desk from IKEA, and in my single, I only have 4 wall outlets, in that corner, and kitchen with no stove, opposite corner, and middle of fourth wall where a...
Pros: again, good weight, more is better, at 4.55 lbs its OK, shipped in 3 days, for free, and it was less than 45 bucks! its also very silent, especially with a single Noctua 120mm silent exhaust fan, its a really silent PSU at idle, and unrecognizable hum at 2-3 feet away. (silent with headphones as ...
Summary: I purchased this to power a mini ITX server build. It came with ample connections for my needs and has run reliably for the past year. It regularly comes up in the $20 range and for a build that can use it I don't see a better value for price and reliability. I would buy again.
Summary: AMD Athlon 5350 Thermaltake Core V1 Corsair 430 Modular PSU MSI AM1i G. Skill 16GB (2x8GB) 1600MHz AData SSD 120GB The computer streams YouTube very well at 1080p on a 55" Sharp HDTV. Skyrim runs really well at about 30-36FPS on my 24" monitor at 1080P. Not bad without a dedicated graphics card.
Pros: Provides more than enough power and still has some to spare for my build. Mail in rebate for $10 is pretty awesome.
Summary: One of the better power supply company's out there
Pros: For a small build this is a good value, plenty of power for a 95w 6core AMD, plus Nvid gtx960 and 2 hard drives, plus a DVD burner...just built one for a friends kid as a entry level gaming system. When tested under load was not even breaking a sweat.
Cons: None I can see have used Corsair in a number of builds with a range of wattages and never had a problem with any of them.
