good. but odd noise when fan kicks in

Devin W., Newegg
17 October 2013
  • Summary: tldr: works, makes clicking noise, still works.
  • Pros: powers computer just fine. looks nice with bright leds. smells like a elevator in a fancy hotel.
  • Cons: there is a odd noise when the fan starts that sounds like a clicking like something is rubbing the fans. not sure the source of the problem since i looked inside (without taking it apart) and the fan seems clear of obstructions. it dose not seem to be blocking the fan or affecting its cooling abi...

  • Summary: Good unit overall. Love the stability and the Corsair name. My SSD, case, power supply, and RAM all Corsair. Good quality stuff.
  • Pros: Very stable 12v rail. Nice LED selection switch, blue, red, white, and off. LOTS of power.
  • Cons: When booting the fan spins really hard for about 5 seconds, then completely stops. I thought I had a bad unit at first but I read online that they are supposed to do that. Never had a power supply where the fan wasnt always spinning. I guess the fan only turns on when it reaches a 20% usage load....

Captain planet!

Delano W., Newegg

  • Summary: I have found on Corsairs website that they make the same PSU but, bronze certified or at least thats what it says on their website. Wish Newegg would get some in stock if it is true... it would be great.
  • Pros: Powers everything extremely well, Love the two rails! seems that it cant fail! and with all the colors combined they make my tower work just like captain planet.....far stretch, I know but, glad it has a white LED!
  • Cons: None really, wish that i could install with the fans pointing up instead of down, but no worries as long as it works

Works fine, noisier than I expected

Keith F., Newegg
12 May 2012
  • Summary: It has lots of cables, which was a minor pain. Not a con, because I knew it wasn't modular, and after all it was a one-time hassle.
  • Pros: Installs easily, works fine, has a fancy LED light in the back in three different colours. Automatic dual voltage, if you ever plan on moving out of North America with it.
  • Cons: The fan is the noisiest part of my system. It's still fairly quiet, but couldn't they make it as quiet as the case fans?

GREAT!

  • Summary: Over all I really like the quality this thing is extremely solid and Really really looks nice. If it weren't for the impossible molex connectors I would urge anyone to buy this. And who knows maybe it's just my case fans molex that were giving the trouble.
  • Pros: Yuo'll have wires for anything you can possibly power with a 800 watt psu. The LED fan is wonderful looking and it's as silent as a dead mouse.
  • Cons: The only problem I have with it are the silly molex connectors. They take an amazing force to plug into any female molex connector. Idk maybe I'm doing something wrong. But when I was mic chatting with my friends while I was plugging them in my friends were asking what was going on, proly sounded...

High quality, but tons of wires

Eric K., Newegg
14 January 2012
  • Pros: Had to get a beefier power supply in case I wanted to incorporate SLI in the future, like most Corsair products, it's of very good quality. Quiet, so far no issues. Also the braided wires are a plus, helps from keeping the bajillion wires getting tangled.
  • Cons: Tons of wires, but I knew that when I bought it. In my small tower, I really had to bundle up the excess with wires to hide them well.

perfect for me

  • Summary: Reviews say that it can actually provide up to 1000w of juice but i sure have not tested that. I know i'm only using about 550w. I just like the extra headroom in case i drop a monster Xfire in my rig.
  • Pros: I absolutely love this psu. It looks pretty in my plexy glass case. Corsair is a great brand that you can trust to last you a long time. they are well known for making solid psu as well as many other things. Its not silent but its more quiet than my gpu and most the rest of my case. I know the ps...
  • Cons: I'm knocking an egg off because this thing is way overpriced. There are much better psu's out there for the price. Not gonna lie I payed an extra $20 just so I can have a pretty blue led light. This thing is not modular. I managed to stuff away all the cables but it was rough.
