5 out of 5 eggsCX500M

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

Pros: Worked first try
Modular
Looks good in case
80+ bronze
Awesome price (w/rebate)

Cons: Power wires for HDD/optical drives could be a bit longer, works good for a mid tower but a full tower you might have some issues. Not work docking an egg for though, most people using this aren't running a full tower anyways.

Other Thoughts: Working great so far, no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsfirst modular PSU

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

Pros: very quiet fan and the modular cables are kept to a minimum. I think i only needed to use one cable and that's for the drives. the CPU and 24pin motherboard power cables are NOT modular though.

Cons: none really.

Other Thoughts: my first modular PSU. I was going to buy the CX430 but this wasn't much more money so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm very happy so far. no problems at all and it's powering the rig just fine. AMD A6-5400K, 8GB hyper X RAM, and sandisk 128GBj SSD

2 out of 5 eggsDOA

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

Pros: Modular design was good and it seemed like a great value overall

Cons: I neglected to test the power drive when it arrived because (silly me) I assumed it would work out of the box. After spending hours building my computer and managing cables I was pretty disappointed to find that I couldn't boot up at all.

Other Thoughts: I didn't want to wait to build my computer so I picked up another power supply which has worked so I'll be sending this back.

5 out of 5 eggsNice for the Price

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

Pros: cheap, well packaged, cheap, gets the job done, cheap, did I say cheap?

Cons: the connectors felt really sharp and cheap handling it, but it's not like I'm going to be holding the connectors while using it...

Other Thoughts: Get it, overall good PSU for the price.

1 out of 5 eggsBlew and caught my PC on fire!!!

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

Pros: Design, price, looks

Cons: I've had this power supply in my newly built non-gaming basic setup PC for about 2 months now and it ran with no problems. Today while I was on the phone and the PC was idle, it burst into flames. It burned up my [Plextor] DVD player power cable until it totally melted and caught fire before blowing the power supply and who knows what else. I would figure a direct short would take out a fuse long before the house burned down (good thing I was home and it didn't!). I have NEVER had anything like this happen to me or anyone I know before. What gives here? Now I have to spend hundreds more trying to rebuild my PC again. I will NOT be buying this same power supply!!!

Other Thoughts: No external fusing. What is the internal fuse, 50 amps?!?!

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for Mini Towers

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

Pros: Corsair quality, modular PSU, good price (with rebate), quiet.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I got this for my daughter-in-law's PC. It's a modest Athlon IIx4 system with an ATI 5770 card in one of Rosewill's mini towers. There is simply no way to effectively hide cables in one of those mini towers, and the PSU we originally installed had a very noisy cooling fan. This Corsair PSU is quiet, and we were able to run only the cables needed so the interior is much tidier with better airflow.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't cheap out on this PSU

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

Pros: very cheap for a 500w psu after rebate.

Cons: Causing my newly built PC to randomly shutting down, rebooting, ultimately damaging my operating system and my PC components.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: I bought this for my microATX build. Since it's modular, cable management was much easier. No problems so far.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I awkwardly forgot to flip the switch -on- and feared the worst when I tried to boot up my new build for the first time. Yeah.
