1 out of 5 eggsBelow Average Power Supply

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Price seemed right. Had the number of connectors I wanted for a build project and enough power output.

Cons: Snapped off clip on the main motherboard (24-pin) connector getting it to seat. I put more pressure on the connector to get it to seat than I ever have (and made sure that I braced the motherboard).

In my 20+ years building computers, I have never seen a power supply with a connector fitment problem like this. Other users have commented on that issue here and on the googler. Maybe it's only with certain boards, but I had no problem getting the 24-pin connector of an older power supply to seat with my motherboard.

You could be taking a gamble buying this unit. You could possibly damage your motherboard if you get one of the bad ones.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend to anyone. I would ask for a refund, but now it's broken.

5 out of 5 eggsA Powerful Little PSU

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: - Reliable: I've owned many of these including the CX500 and CX600, and none have failed
- Runs cool
- Stable power
- Simple, clean design
- Relatively cheap

Cons: - Not modular
- Only one PCI-e connector (but you can always convert a molex)

Other Thoughts: There's really not much to say. This is a nice little PSU that's great for lower-end builds. It runs most mid-range rigs as long as they're not overclocking, and you could even run something like an i5-4690 and a GTX 960 on it, so it's a pretty respectable unit. Never had one fail on me, so I'll continue to buy them most likely.

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair CX 430

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Super quiet, I only know it's on because I'm on the internet. Granted I'm using less then half of the wattage.

Cons: Besides trouble overclocking, nothing.

Other Thoughts: I tried overclocking my AMD Kaveri processor and it wouldn't stay stable on even a 100 MHz overclock. I would log on and try to start a stress test but before it could load it would freeze. It's either the PSU or the processor but just wanted to add this.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Like it Should

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Item arrived within 4 days or so, in good condition, undamaged, well packaged, etc... as one would expect from NewEgg. Came with standard (black) installation screws and about 10 small zip-ties, which was a nice extra.

After a brief scare, I discovered the 8 pin CPU connector would split so that I could insert (half of) it into my old 4-pin motherboard.

Has both SATA and old-style IDE power connectors for older motherboards.

Cons: Worst thing I could say is that the SATA cable was a bit short for my situation, but that's not really the power supplies fault. I assume their length is standard. On my machine, the power supply mounts in the upper-left hand corner and the hard drives are in the lower-right hand corner, as far away from the PSU as they could possibly be. The SATA power cables were about 1 or 2 inches short, and so I had to rearrange the hard drives to move them closer. I MIGHT have been able to force the both of the cables to stretch to reach both of my two hard drives, but then I wouldn't have had a SATA cable for the optical drive. I don't blame the PSU for this at all, as I assume the cables are standard length. I'm just mentioning this so other people are caught by surprise.

The only other "negative" I can think of is that the physical dimensions of the PSU made installation very tight, but I can't say if the PSU was a little large, or if the HP case was a little small. Either way, at some point I didn't know if it was going to fit, but happily at some point I broke out the BFH and MADE it fit, and all was well.

Other Thoughts: When shopping for PSU's, the first thing I do is toggle "Active PFC = Yes" in my searches since a power supply that doesn't have it isn't worth having. I don't have the tech knowledge to explain it in technical terms, but having Active PFC means the PSU is going to be more efficient than one that does not have it. It's a fast and easy way of excluding from your searches power supplies that you do not want. I learned this trick years ago and thought I would share it now. You can read wikipedia for what it's about; has something to do with phase, but the main point I'm making is that that all 80%+ power supplies have Active PFC, and all of the power supplies that do not have Active PFC are less than 80% efficient. It's forcing search results to only include those PSUs with Active PFC limits the search to only those PSUs that are 80% efficient or better. From there, I start looking at the number of customer reviews and price.

A cheap Power Supply can kill-off a motherboard, video card, hard drive, CPU or all of the above. Saving a few 10's of dollars could cost you 100's of dollars down the road. Biggest mistake I see people make is going cheap on a power supply. This Corsair was for an old 7 year-old HP quad-core and I couldn't see spending any more than this on this computer.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat for budget build

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Got this for build for my wife. Wasn't building a high end system so i didn't need a high watt psu. However that doesn't mean i don't want quality. This delivers all the power and has all the connections I need for the build. Also the pus doesn't have any annoying whine or anything like that. Fairly quite and psu's go. Got enough power to spare for any future cpu upgrades. 5 months and still going strong, no issues.

Cons: not modular but at this price point nothing is.

Other Thoughts: MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150
Intel Pentium G3258
MSI Radeon HD 7770
Cooler Master Seidon 120M
Team Vulcan 8GB
PNY 240GB SATA III
Seagate Barracuda 1TB
LG 18x48x DVD-ROM Drive

5 out of 5 eggsCan never go wrong with Corsair PSU

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: These always work great.

Cons: 2 years in, one of them started to develop a buzzing noise. I should have warrantied it, but didn't bother.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 at $40, though they are usually available for under $30 now.
