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 Semi-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.

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

Pros: Well built power supply and quite efficient, I use it for a little side server that runs 24/7

Cons: None really.. Aside from i dont think they ended up honoring their mail in rebate yet.. seems to take forever.

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 Semi-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 Semi-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 Semi-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.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat PS when they are on sale

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

Pros: Used these in a couple of builds so far and they get the job done. I believe that these are actually made by Seasonic for Corsair...one of the reasons I bought this.
The mostly modular cables is very nice for smaller cases and cramped room.
35.5 amp 12-volt rail!

Cons: Price is too high for what you get if it is not on sale. Would not buy at regular price. On sale, I would buy one again.

Only 4 SATA power plugs...

Other Thoughts: At the right price, this is a good choice for a lower wattage power supply. If you are running a lot of hardware, looks elsewhere....

5 out of 5 eggsMissing Cables

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

Pros: This is a wonderful PSU which has worked without flaw thus far. It is modular and highly efficient. I got this power supply on sale and it was ridiculously cheap, so look out for incredible sales.

Cons: The only con I have is that my graphics card requires an 8 pin power connector in addition to a 6 pin power connector, while this PSU only came with an 8 pin connector. After going through Corsair's easy and simple RMA process, I had the correct cable within days, and I didn't even have to ship the PSU back. Corsair RMA was fantastic

2 out of 5 eggsbad fan

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

Pros: Worked fine at the start.

Cons: After only a few weeks of use the fan started vibrating badly. No power issues apparently, the system it is on is relatively low power usage but any time the fan goes a bit over idle, it starts vibrating/rattling badly.
