Summary: Pros: - Efficient - Very quiet - Plenty of plugs if you aren't going to go too crazy with expanding - Corsair always builds quality power supplies - Got it at quite a discount over Black Friday - 600W is more than enough power for the conservative computer builder Cons: - Didn't fit quite right in my HAF Cooler Master case.
Summary: This power supply installed easily in the bottom of my case. The cables were long enough to route around the case in an organized manner. No problems with power so far and runs the computer just fine. I would recommend this series to anyone needing to replace a power supply of building a computer.
Summary: I had this in my older rig, running a GTX 470. It is pretty decent, quiet, and does what it needs too. Aesthetically, it's wonderful! However I was using my computer one day and it just shut off on me. Never turned back on. So switched out the PSU and boom! Life too my computer again. I honestly, did not buy this again. Corsair said they would replace it but my package was apparently "lost"; which is unfortunate.
Summary: Works great. 600w is more than enough for most systems nowadays, and this Corsair PSU is no exception. It stays quiet, powers all of my components and never uses more then 400W even on load. MY SPECS: AMD PHENOM 965 II BLACK 3.4GHZ CORSAIR VENGEANCE 4GB 1600MHZ ASROCK M3A770DE AM3 MOTHERBOARD SAPPHIRE HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 GRAPHIC CARD CORSAIR CX600W PSU - the product ANTEC 300 CASE SEAGATE BARRACUDA 500GB 7200RPM HDD. All in all, great PSU, would definitely recommend.
Summary: Bought one October 12, 2011. Sounds now like fan bearings are shot inside unit. Sure, has a warranty, but is it even worth it to send it in? And what do I do in the meantime? Causual user also so it's not like it's on for hours at a time. Definintely not recommend.
Summary: It's been almost three weeks since I first turned on my brand new rig. Still working just fine and runs very quiet. The wires are super long and works great in my large full tower. This power supply has 1 24-pin atx connector 1 8-pin 12v connector (works with 4-pin 12volt motherboards also) 2 pci-e 6+2 pin connectors 2 sata power cables that has 3 plugs on each 1 molex cable with 4 plugs If you want to run multiple high end graphics cards this power supply will not work.
Summary: I've had quite a few Corsair power supplies and still have one of their first HX units in use. This is one of the least expensive units they have ever produced. I didn't expect miracles, so I wasn't hoping to receive anything other than a low cost unit. That said, among the low cost units, I like this one the best. It's reasonably quiet, has enough power to run 95% of the systems out there.
Summary: Bought this product last February for my desktop at home. Worked great for a little over a year, almost 13 months to be exact, and then it failed. Obviously, not too happy with the life of the unit.
