  • Summary: A good inexpensive PSU that's also modular! Has plenty of peripheral cables if required. Runs cool and quiet like other Corsair units. In the picture, it shows that the 8pin power is sleeved but it's actually not. It looks like the flat modular cables.
  • Pros: modular, quiet, cool
  • Cons: 8pin cpu power cable not sleeved

  • Summary: Fit great, works great. I would of gave it a 5 star rating, but there were no wiring diagram or instructions. That would of been helpful since I am not a computer geek.

Modular, working so far.

Charles, Amazon

  • Summary: It seems to be working fine in my brothers pc. Being modular came in handy, since it's just an HP Pavilion case with no cable management options. Kinda feels cheap, and lightweight to me. I usually prefer Fractal Designs power supplies, but in this case, needed a cheap modular solution in which Fractal doesn't offer so I went with Corsair.

Powers my Graphics card and I3

  • Summary: I have a lower power rig that this powers just fine. I have played new computer games with most of the settings on and it went just fine. I would by it again. The modular aspect is nice for a small case like I have.

Super quiet, seems solid

Mister B, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: Not many reviews on the web but loads of reviews on Amazon told me this was the PSU for my needs. I have a single GPU and a cool-running Core i5 Haswell CPU, so I figured it wouldn't load it much. And it doesn't. The loudest thing in my system is the case fans and they run very quietly. Would recommend for a similar build. The main 24-pin and aux 8-pin cables are not modular but if you're building a PC you need those so why would you want them to be removable? Great PSU.

Excellent Power Supply

Fred, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: Modular design made it easy to neatly route and groom cables. The fan is so quiet that I had to make a visual check to see if it was actually spinning. The fan is large so that it can cool at lower RPM. Also, the fan's location is on the inside bottom, rather than at the rear of the unit, which helps muffle blade sounds. I have had no problems with this unit since installing it over one month ago.

First upgrade for my PSU

C. Pereira, Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: I was lead to this PSU through a Tom's Hardware, and boy to i not regret buying it. Its quiet, modular for my stock PC and extremely easy to install. Came with all the paperwork needed to set it up right. Just a fantastic piece of hardware. I trust Corsair more than anything and this fits the bill... now i just need to figure out how to use the rest of the wattage!
