So far so good.

Gabe Coones, Amazon
5 June 2015
  • Summary: My last PSU was a super cheap off brand one that didn't last very long so I decided to spend a little more and get a solid unit. After reading reviews on about 10 different websites I decided to purchase the cx600m, a good semi-moduler quality psu. Or so it seemed.

Great performance IF you can stand the coil whine/buzz.

RLFiredancer, Amazon

  • Summary: The performance of this PSU is solid, and it gets the job done. However, when under load, the coil whine/buzz that the CX series creates is just ridiculous. I ordered a replacement PSU thinking I received a bad unit and nope; when under load, it sounds like there is an airplane flying by.

Perfect power supply to replace failed Dell Precision T3500 PSUs (and for home built gaming PCs)

UX12, Amazon
25 April 2015
  • Summary: I build PCs on my own from time to time and have had success with corsair equipment in the past and had no doubt that these would be any different. When our fleet of 20+ Dell Precision T3500s at work started blowing their factory 525W power supplies (as they are known to), I decided to try the CX600...

Steve Boatman, Amazon
28 February 2015
  • Summary: I used this on a lower end gaming rig built in 2014. Handled older nVidia cards just fine, but wouldn't use a GTX or high-end card coupled with this. I wouldn't hesitate to use this with several hard drives, fans, etc.

21 February 2015
  • Summary: Was not able to set it up as it did not come with a 4 pin EPS segment! I was about to upgrade my computer so I bought the case and this. Well, it comes with a six pin but not a 4 but it states on the box it does! Sent it back for a refund.

Excellent replacement PSU

Psi 5, Amazon
31 January 2015
  • Summary: After a *lot* of reading and research, bought this as a replacement PSU for my Dell Studio XPS 7100. Went up to 500 watts just to be safe and opted for the modular version to save on wires. The PSU went in easily and the connections were all straightforward.
