5 out of 5 eggsWorks great for i7-4790k + GTX 960

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC CP-9020059-NA Power Supply

Pros: Provides efficient power.
Has not died.
Supports an Intel Core i7-4790K and Nvidia GeForce GTX 960.
Supports my SIX case fans AND a Corsair H60 liquid cooler.

Cons: The fan is louder than all the other fans in my computer combined.

Other Thoughts: With Mail-in rebate, this thing cost me only around $30. I could care less that it is a little loud. It works fine for my needs.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Enough SATA Power Cables

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC CP-9020059-NA Power Supply

Pros: So far it's performed well, but it hasn't been stressed with the demands of a GPU

Cons: For some reason, Corsair didn't see fit to provide enough SATA power connectors for the 500W PSU. This makes no sense as they provide a full set of 4-pin molex power connectors. Couldn't they at least make half of them SATA power connectors or added two to the chain? You know, in case someone has more than one or two SSD + BD/DVD drive + one or two HDDs.

Other Thoughts: Other than being really unhappy about the cable situation, I've been happy with the power supply. I only wish that Corsair had given more thought to the connector configuration.

2 out of 5 eggsunderwhelmed

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC CP-9020059-NA Power Supply

Pros: ran for a couple of days
delivered the advertised power

Cons: after running well for a couple of days, the fan on this PSU experiences a stuck bearing, or goes off balance, or something else happens, and the fan starts rattling like crazy. This happens every 3 to 5 hours

Other Thoughts: I can restart the PC, or turn it off and on again, might take a couple of times, and get the fan back on center and/or the bearings loose.

But within the next 3 to 5 hours, the same thing will happen.

Given the weight of the PSU, it will cost as much to send for RMA as the PSU cost originally. So, lesson learned.

I would avoid this model, and will probably avoid any CX Corsair, and spend more to get something with a better build quality.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC CP-9020059-NA Power Supply

Pros: Cheap, functions fine so far. Cords are all sufficiently long. Came with every connector I required.

Cons: Connectors are a bit on the cheap side and sometimes don't feel like they're truly connected. I could foresee this becoming a bigger issue further into the PSU's life.

Other Thoughts: You'd think when you create a bargain PSU, it would be more prudent to scale up the quality of the plastic casing on the connectors... can't save that much money to cut that corner and being that the connectors are what the customer handles the most, you'd get a lot more perceived value out of even just slightly higher quality plastic on those connectors. Small gripe, the power supply is really a no brainer when you compare its price to the price of PSUs with similar features. Big fan of Corsair overall.

2 out of 5 eggsSummer temps doom this PSU.

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC CP-9020059-NA Power Supply

Pros: For a ~$50 PSU, this isn't a bad PSU. Being semi modular is nice, the cables are all black, and the unit itself looks good. I have a low power setup and handles it just fine....

Cons: ...until summer hits. Every summer, computer crashes about everyday during basic desktop operations. Display freezes, keyboard lights won't change. Thought it was another component causing the issue until I replaced literally every part except the PSU and the problem persisted. Replaced MoBo/CPU, RAM and RAM slots, HDD/SDD, GPU, monitors. PSU can't handle even luke warm temps. Really unfortunate.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We're sorry that your Corsair PSU failed. Please contact our Tech Support at 888-222-4346 or submit a ticket at corsair.force.com and we'll be more than happy to troubleshoot the issue.
