Reviews

from completed build Blue Viper Rides Again

Meh. Did the job. Nothing fancy.

from completed build The Gainer

Served me well over the years when i had my AMD A8-5600k and current gpu paired with it. Will have to upgrade soon once i get my I7-4790k and newer gpu.

from completed build Small Business Server

Quiet P/S with plenty of connections. Can't beat the price point

from completed build Married w/ Children

I got this PSU for $25 after promo code and MIR from Newegg. Great quality and a great price!

from completed build Little Red

Corsair PSU’s are just good solid PSU’s.

from completed build Undead Chaos Level 2

Very nice power supply. The CX series is supposed to not be too good from what I've heard but this power supply works fine and it looks very nice.

non modular power supply, never again. to much left over and nowhere to put it. I am sure someone will tell me how they feel about this PSU in the comments (seems to be a normal thing here) Do i like Corsair Yes. But i do not think i will be using it a non modular power supply again.

from completed build A White GPU!

Just a classic PSU. Nothing special. Wish the cables were side-by-side instead of in a bundle; it's ugly and hard to fit the side panel back on, but it's not enough to knock off a star.

from completed build The Middle-Class Budget Builder

So far, this was the first thing I bought for my build. (Won't be doing that mistake again. The thought of getting the wrong PSU was unbearable to think about when I complete my build.) Overall. pretty quiet, but was concerned when I realized after installing the power, the exhaust fan is pointing up, towards my GPU, so I might get heat blasted at my GPU, I tried turning it upside down, but something in my mind was telling me that it didn't look right. Seeing that the case is by the same manufacturer, I assume they must have designed all their cases with the brick fan pointing up, with the outlet on the frame's outline. Will deduct for case and PSU design. But overall a solid PSU for any starter.

from completed build Red Christmas

Preforms, but I am starting to have trouble with noise from its fan. Sounds like a truck.
