4 out of 5 eggsGood if a rebate is available

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+ Gold
- Modular
- Quiet operation

Cons: - Only 4 SATA power connectors
- Super stiff cables
- Awful sleeving

Other Thoughts: Great, extremely efficient power supply with little to no fan noise at about 280 watts at max load drawing 309 from the wall. I was a little disappointed with Corsair only offering a total of four SATA power connectors (two on each cable) while also making the connect too short for my intended application. Personally would have liked to see 3 SATA on each cable and better soft sleeving.
If you're looking for modular, 80+ Gold PSU's, I would suggest Rosewill or Seasonic.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well, quiet

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: Price. It is semi-modular. The fan is extremely quiet.

I do not play games, but even using lots of busy virtual machines I do not think I've ever heard it out of its quietest mode, which cannot be heard unless your ear is right up against it.

Cons: The cables it comes with are not very flexible. They get a little better if you bend them around a bit. I think this power supply would be easier to put in to a machine if the cables were more supple/bendable.

About a week after purchase I heard some slight rattling from the fan. As the fan had been totally silent before, it annoyed me. I decided to give the unit a bit of a shake, took it out of the case, flipped it around a bit, and re-installed it and it has been perfectly silent since.

Would be good if it had one more SATA plug on the unit.

Other Thoughts: Overall I think it is a good value. You can see where they've saved some money on the unit but once in use it is quiet and it powers your computer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

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: +Very efficient (80 plus gold)
+Quiet
+Compact
+Great value

Cons: -Need to wait for sale, and mail-in-rebate to make this compelling value.

Other Thoughts: This is 20mm shorter than fully modular PSUs like the RM450, and this makes cable routing easier for compact cases. Unlike hybrid or passive PSUs, the fan is always on, and I was concerned the 120mm fan would be a bit louder than the 140mm units found on larger units. However, I have found this remarkably quiet. I got this on sale for $30 after a mail-in-rebate, which is a terrific value. At the list price it faces a lot more competition.

2 out of 5 eggsGood until...

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: good psu, works on my old intel pc build

Cons: wont work on my new build which uses an am3+ socket and only has one pci-e connector and cant connect my gtx 760, which is a big letdown, next time i am going with evga. should have been more careful. no work around

Other Thoughts: overpriced, going with evga next, until i get this fixed, which i wont think that would happen

4 out of 5 eggsWorks perfect

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: Works with powerful hardware like a SSC GTX 960 and i5.

Cons: Comes with two SATA cables with two connectors on each. Since my DVD drive so far away from my HDDs I must use the molex with a molex to SATA adapter to reach my DVD drive.
Took an egg off for that.

5 out of 5 eggsGood $30 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: Cost less than $30 to my door.

Has been running basically 24/7 since august 2014 with zero issues.

Cons: Wish it had more connections. Has 4 modular connection spots, wish it had 6.

Other Thoughts: Price seems to have gone way up but it goes on sale quite a bit.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Power Supply on the 2nd try

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 stable power, robust 12v rail. 80 Plus Gold. Very quiet (the 2nd one was anyway)

Cons: I was running prime95 to check for adequate cooling in the small HTPC case and after only about 6 hours into the PSU's life the fan started to make clicking noises which progressed into a loud rattle and moderate vibration.

Other Thoughts: I would rate the new PSU from the RMA a solid 5 out of 5.

Looks like Corsair had a bad batch, as others have reported similar issues with the fan

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

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: Received this package this evening, installed it flawlessly. Everything was in the packaging. All the holes lined up. PC booted immediately and POSTed. Fan runs quietly. Came with zip ties and a molex-case fan adapter. What a plus!

Cons: The 8-pin CPU power connector was a little difficult to pull apart. That is literally my only complaint.

Other Thoughts: Current specs:
i7-4770k
BioStar Intel motherboard.
5GB DDR3 RAM
120GB Kingston SSD

1 out of 5 eggsMail-in Rebate Snafu

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: Good equipment, but the company leaves a bit to be desired.

Cons: I previously did a review of the product as one worthy of 5 eggs. The product itself does deserve that, but the company, on the other hand, does not, in my opinion.

I sent in a mail-in rebate for this product and 3 others all on the same day. This product's rebate was received but they claimed the postmark was about a week later than when I mailed it out (the other rebates were fine). That long of a delay implies impropriety on their part, though I'll admit there's a possibility that the USPS is to blame.

Nevertheless, the company extended absolutely no courtesy to me when I sent the inquiry regarding this. The only reason I purchased this was because of the rebate, but that doesn't matter to Corsair. They simply said the matter was settled because of that postmark. This is not settled, in my opinion.

Do NOT count on mail-in rebates working out for you! If you do purchase something with a mail-in rebate, check the rebate form before ordering to ensure you'll have enough time to actually install and test the component.
