5 out of 5 eggsA good modular psu

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: If you're starting out and your build is fairly efficient, then this is a great psu for you. Semi Modular, every cable that comes out of my psu serves a purpose.

Cons: The cable for the cpu power was just a little bit shorter than I would have liked. I still managed to route it the way I wanted to, but it just barely reached.

Other Thoughts: I have an intel core i5 4670k, asus z87 pro, 1 ssd, 1 hdd and a gigabyte gtx 760 and it supports my build.

I know it says SLI ready, but I wouldn't use this for SLI.
Pointless adverts ftw.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Corsair - these guys know how to make good, reliable hardware.
Modular - trust me, this is important.

Cons: Not free?

Other Thoughts: Perfect for reliable budget/low power general purpose builds. In fact considering that there are now high performance low power graffics cards (nVidia GTX750ti - 60W) and CPUs, you could build a decent budget gaming system with this.

Bought this one after previous power supply in PC that I built for my dad some time ago died. No problems so far.

Used bunch of other corsair products (RAM, liquid CPU cooler, PSUs, ...) - had no problems with any of them yet except that single power supply that died.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy with Corsair

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Semi modular, good price, good performance.

Fit in the Silverstone HTPC case I used (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163239)

Only been a few days that I've been using it, but happy so far. Fan is very quiet.

Cons: None so far. Except that I didn't get a case badge/sticker with mine :(

3 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Semi modular
Was on sale
Basic

Cons: DOA so I can't comment on much

Other Thoughts: This is for a new build and seeing as I do not have a backup PSU, I'm dead in the water until the RMA comes through. So I'm now behind about a week or so. Hopefully the next one is better

5 out of 5 eggsThe new New egg

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Great product best of all the New Newegg is better than the old . Having been a long time customer I noticed that the egg had slipped from their former greatness so I called and complained about the shipping and other issues. I ordered my P.c products and they were shipped to me in two days. Great costumer service and prompt shipping these guys will listen to you .

Cons: None
