5 out of 5 eggsCorsair CX430M

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Reliable brand and had a rebate, $30 when all was said and done. Runs my server using ~40W of power at "idle".

Cons: The SATA power connectors are right angled so they may not work with your case setup (I had to use an adapter). The cords are also a bit rigid, to be expected with lower end PSUs but I felt these were tough to wrangle into a small case.

Other Thoughts: This is a multi-use home server machine. "Idle" is 2 empty Minecraft servers and a rather busy seedbox. Other services running include FTP, RDP, WINS, Active Directory with file and media shares.

CPU: Intel Pentium G3420 3.2Ghz Dual Core
MoBo: ASUS H87I-PLUS Micro-ITX
RAM: 2X4GB G.Skill Ripjaws DDR31600 9-9-9-24
PSU: Corsair CX430M

5 out of 5 eggsSoild PSU for the Money

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Inexpensive. Semi-Modular. Quiet overall. Decent build quality. 3-year warranty.

Cons: None to really mention. It smell bad for about 3 days upon install, but went away. I'm sure it had to do with some of the glue etc.

Other Thoughts: I own both the non-modular CX430 & the CX430M. Both have held-up well for over a year now. It's has the lower-end Samxon & Teapo caps (which are getting better IMHO) I owned a Mushkin PSU (Topower Build) that had the same caps & never had an issue.

Corsair CX series use to be built by Seasonic & CWT. These were better PSU's. But, overall you really can't complain for a $30.00 PSU (AR) You can always buy a Seasonic branded PSU for a few more dollars!

4 out of 5 eggsPower Connecter Blues

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Well it does what a power supply is supposed to do. When it's connected properly...which was a problem...see cons. It's quiet, runs cool, has enough plugs & output for the build I used it in.

Cons: The 24 pin connector clip would NOT reach far enough down on my MSI A78M-E35 mobo to lock it down & because of the downward weight of the cable would disconnect the power to the board...never a good thing! I ended up having to trim some off of the shoulder on the mobo socket retainer ledge in order to fully engage the 24 pin retainer clip, and then added a piece of tape around it just to be sure. Runs fine & is not an issue now, but some of the problems people are having with this power supply could be due to the clip just not seating properly?

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if this is the MSI motherboards problem, or the power supply, referring to the power plug not matching up? I do know that the only other time I've ever run into a problem with a motherboard atx power plug not seating was with another MSI mobo in the distant past.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: *Looks nice
*Semi-modular
*All but the 24-pin cable are flat and black
*Pretty quiet
*Rear on/off switch
*Good quality (for the price)

Cons: *Fan was obnoxious for a week (more in other thoughts section)
*Only 2 SATA power connectors per wire
*Only 1 6+2 PCIe power connector (would have liked to see another one, but understandable for the wattage)

Other Thoughts: About 7 months into my grandma owning hers (I'm making the review for her so you guys will know), the fan started rattling really obnoxiously, and the only way you could get it to stop is to hit it and then turn the computer off. Then it would be fine for another day. It did this for a week, and now it works flawlessly, and it's even quieter than it was before (while moving the same amount of air).

1 out of 5 eggsDead on Arrival

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: None, since it didn't work.

Cons: Put together my build, go to turn on the power....and nothing. Fans spin once, and that's it.
Paperclip test showed it was dead. Very disappointing!

2 out of 5 eggsIncompatible with Motherboards

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: The power supply is functional.

Cons: The power supply has compatibility issues. On a MSI AMD 754-pin motherboard with a 24-pin main power connection and a 4-pin 12V connection, the power supply would not power up the motherboard. On an ASRock AMD AM3+ motherboard with a 24-pin main power connection and an 8-pin 12V connection, when the motherboard was RESET it would lock up requiring the power supply to be switched off and on to clear. These problems did not occur on the motherboards when other power supplies were used.

4 out of 5 eggsSolidly built back up PSU

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: -Solid build quality, just what I expect from a name brand PSU. Even on the budget end.
-Worked good enough to keep my computer running while my main PSU was out on warranty.

Cons: -The PSU was lacking the 8+2pin PCI-E cable. This didn't hit me too hard as this PSU was only temporary. But it was frustrating. All I had on hand was a Molex to 6pin adapter I had to run off a different PSU cable, and loading my GPU caused the whole system to brown out so I had to take a (much needed) break from playing games.

Other Thoughts: Luckily, I only had to use this PSU for 1 week waiting on my CX500 to return from warranty shipping. Corsair customer service was extremely fast on processing my CX500 and getting it back to me. It was just disappointing to be missing a nearly essential plug from my PSU packaging.

Speaking to my brother, who uses this same model for his PCs, he didn't get an 8+2 either. I had bought this PSU when I built my PC a while ago to keep on hand just in case, so I had no idea the plug was missing until I had owned the PSU for a couple months. As such, I haven't worried about contacting newegg or corsair about the plug.

1 out of 5 eggsNice looking PSU

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Looks nice, modular cables, cheap, has a corsair sticker on it

Cons: Built the computer plugged it in and posted then it rebooted and the asus motherboard bios said it has protected my computer from a power supply surge. Sure enough it turned right back off and the smell of burning electronics filled the air. Stay away from these cheap power supplies. Sent the upc in for the rebate so im sure they wont take it back.

5 out of 5 eggs*4* SATA plugs

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: When it says 2 SATA connections, it means 2 strands SATA connectors, each with 2 plugs. I ordered some MOLEX to SATA connectors because I thought it wouldn't have enough, but I was pleasantly surprised.

80+ Bronze efficiency, perfect for a HTPC/Steambox.

Cons: None yet.
