1 out of 5 eggsCORSAIR CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Nice long cables, fully sleeved, allows for excellent cable management in your case. Plenty of connectors.

Cons: PSU began failing within DAYS of being installed in my system, despite being 100W over what Newegg recommended for my rig. Within 6 days of installing software and beginning regular use, the computer did not turn on at all. A quick PSU test showed that the power supply didn't even supply enough power to keep the tester running for more than a few seconds.

You get what you pay for. Hopefully you and I get our money back.

Also, the cables are not modular, but the full sleeves makes them easy enough to manage.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Shipping!

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Good price with rebate. Corsair has a great reputation for quality PSUs. Haven't even opened box yet, so can't make any comment more than that yet.

Cons: Like I said above, no comment here yet.

Other Thoughts: Actually, just really wanted to give Newegg props. Super fast shipping! Placed order 2 nights ago for my sister's computer that has a bad PSU and received it this afternoon. I wasn't expecting this for at least another week with the free shipping. Right on for being so prompt! Five stars to Newegg!

1 out of 5 eggsSATA cable too short

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Seems well constructed. Packaging is nice. Fits the ATX bay.

Cons: SATA cable much too short for my Lian Li ATX server case. The length is ridiculous - I can barely reach the top 3 bays if I turn all the disks upside down in their slots. Rightside up, the cable plugs are oriented backwards to plug in without putting a loop in the cables. None of my other power supplies are like this - they all have SATA power plugs that do not have to be turned over to to fit topside-up drives.

Plus this supply only has three SATA plugs on a single cable. I presume it's listed in the specs, but still ... that's seems a little stingy.

Other Thoughts: Back it goes - never even powered up.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, works great

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Easy install, runs quiet

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded a failed 300w power supply in my dell xps 435mt. This power supply has plenty of cable connectors (almost too many...had to zip tie and tuck in all the unnecessary extras). Easy install and runs very quiet. Newegg rocks since they delivered really fast and I was only down for 1 day.

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Works exactly like it should. No problems.

Cons: None thus far

Other Thoughts: The only problem is the cables are not removable, so if you don't need some of the cables they just muck up your case. I should have read more thoroughly, but other than that great for the price.
