2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Looks nice, appears quality construction, semi-modular construction, cables easy to work with. Fan very quiet and power cord included. Third party reviews are positive.

Cons: Did not work out of the box, potential hassle of rebate. The SATA/PATA/video power cables felt very light weight even when compared to the PS that came in the machine.

Other Thoughts: First off, I have been building computers since the mid 90's and have never had a problem with a power supply. Bought this to install in a Dell Core2Quad machine running Win10 test box I use in the garage. I figured for $25 the swap to a new (Gold cert) power supply would be quick and easy. I messed around with the power supply for over an hour only to find out it was bad out of the box. I even swapped in another know good PS and the Dell worked fine. Swapped in the original PS, requested a refund, and boxed it up this morning.

I know that there is always the potential of stuff not working with Dell machines but swapping the other supply tells me this one is bad.

5 out of 5 eggsCORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 Power Supply

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Solid, Semi-modular.

Cons: Cables are stiff and don't "snap" into some plugs but works fine.

Other Thoughts: I bought this on sale for general purpose budget i3 build using an m-ATX ASROCK Pro4 board and a EVGA GTX 750ti video card. The system has been the most stable system I have ever used. On at least 12 hours a day 7 days a week with no problems. I would use this power supply again for similar builds.

1 out of 5 eggsCrashed & Burned After 11 Months

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Cheap on sale.

Good efficiency at low power.

Cons: Failed after a bit less than 11 months. When it crashed it also totally fried the motherboard.
Replacement unit (under warranty) was slow to arrive.

Other Thoughts: This psu was never run hard. It simply powered an 1150 motherboard with a Haswell Core i5 (no O/C), Intel HD Graphics, 8GB RAM and a DVD burner.

In another PC my old Corsair TX750 runs a power hungry Core i7 130-watt cpu, 12GB RAM, a GTX 760, 12GB RAM, 1 x SSD, 3 x HDD and 2 x DVD. It handles all that along with heavy gaming. Conclusion: TX-series is solid, but CS-series is not.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent PSU on a budget

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Great price with rebate. It generates almost no heat and the fan is just about the quietest I have ever heard on any power supply.

Cons: I didn't really need this to be modular since I ended up using all of the cables anyway. it would be great if Corsair would make one just like this that is not modular and sell it even cheaper.

Other Thoughts: I have this in an HTPC and it is powering an overclocked Xeon dual core processor and an EVGA FTW 750 TI video card. The rebate came relatively quickly.

5 out of 5 eggsNice for $23

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: I got this PS for $23 after rebate. This ATX form factor PSU fit perfectly into my ATX form factor case. It has all plugs necessary to power my ATX form factor motherboard. Makes electrons shoot out of the wall and into my PC. Plenty of SATA connectors. Came with a bunch of zip ties? Is that a PRO? Sure it is. Oh, yeah....it's quiet

Cons: Even with this power supply I cannot bench 450.

Other Thoughts: My mail delivery technician was nice enough to leave the Newegg box sitting on my sidewalk in the rain. Seriously? Seriously! Like, what the heck, mail delivery technician? The power supply box was encased in a nice sheet of plastic, though, so no harm done.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: • 80 PLUS Gold
• Modular
• One of the quietest PSUs I have ever owned.

Cons: • Only one PCIe connector.
• Smells heavily of that smell associated with brand new PCBs. The PSU fan will blow this around for a little while.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid PSU, bad customer service

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Great quality, good connectors, consistent power output. 80 PLUS Gold is a must for a HTPC. Heavy toroid and huge capacitors = a happily powered PC

Cons: Corsair customer service needs some work. I submitted my rebate very timely, and 2 months later I still have not received it in the mail; I ordered the PSU on 4/7/2015, and now its almost July. Corsair's typical response has been that 'it will arrive in 2-3 weeks.'

Other Thoughts: Just don't offer the rebate if you do not intend to honor it.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good PSU

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Bought this because I needed a quiet and efficient PSU for a home server/NAS. This thing hit just the sweet spot. Installation was super easy with the modular cables, the thing is whisper quiet and delivers enough to power anything a server could need.

Cons: Not really any I can see

5 out of 5 eggsRock solid, and cheap as can be.

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Own two of these. One was ordered two years after the other, and I've had no problem with either after owning them each for 2.5 years and 6 months, respectively. Given the price after MIR, these were a steal.

Cons: No complaints.

3 out of 5 eggsMaybe great for some people...

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Great price (< $30); GOLD certified; semi-modular; Corsair's RMA process is excellent and fast if anything goes wrong; attractive (for a PSU).

Cons: Surprisingly loud, even at idle.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this PSU for three reasons: 1) It is (semi) modular, 2) It is GOLD certified, and 3) It had a $30 MIR that made it a great buy. Unfortunately, none of these benefits were enough to overcome the loudness this PSU brought to my office. No thanks. RMA'd back to Corsair. Replacement had same issue. Eventually returned to NewEgg.

My use:

NAS with AsRock FM2-A88X-ITX m/b, AMD A8-6600k APU, 3xWD Red 2tb HDD's, and a Sandisk 32GB SSD OS drive.
