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 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.

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: It powered on

Cons: the fan made a whining noise and had to return it. Bought the much better Supernova G2.

5 out of 5 eggsNice features for the price

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: * Delivers sufficient power
* Efficient
* Quiet operation
* Modularity where it counts.
* Nice big fan

Cons: * No software monitoring
* Only 1 PCI-E connector (although 8-pin is rated for the same as 2 6-pins, 2 6-pins are more common)
* Limited connectors

Other Thoughts: I purchased this PSU to power my new gaming rig. I wanted to match the PSU to power efficient components, and what I ended up with was a Xeon e3 1231-v3 (3.4GHz 4 cores 8 threads, basically i7 4770 w/o iGPU), MSI H97M-G43 and an Nvidia GTX 970 reference card, 2x8GB DDR3 1600, 3x120mm fans (Corsair Air 240 case). My Kill-a-watt reads 380 watt pull with Furmark burn-in and cpu-burn (7 threads) on. This is 100% GPU load an 90-95% CPU load according to HW Monitor. That's pretty much a worse case scenario for the 12v rails, and I don't use a lot of 5v (think USB). Gaming is pulls about 320 from the wall, so I'm guessing that the load is about 65% when gaming (working out at about 90% efficiency) and worst case 75% load, which I feel pretty safe at. I don't have a lot of headroom here, but it's a pretty solid PSU, as I've only noticed mild heat and I don't notice the fan noise. Time will tell how it works out, but it's capable enough of delivering the goods for the hardware listed above :-)

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for ultra-low-power AMD AM1 and Intel Bay Trail boards...Can make it fanless...

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: Least-expensive 80+ Gold power supply. Since it's Gold certified, internal fan can be removed for ultra-low load power only (please note, this will void your warranty, but no big deal for this low-price item).

Cons: Heatsinks are small, cheap quality, and could be a little taller. They're Raidmax type quality.

Other Thoughts: Paired this with a Biostar AM1MHP AMD AM1 motherboard, and I successfully removed the 120mm internal fan inside to make it a completely fanless mATX AMD AM1 PC, as well as a fanless Sempron 3850 AM1 processor. Underclock the processor to 800 MHz slowest speed, disabled three cores, and undervolt it to 0.71250 V bare minimum power setting, plus a solid-state drive, and now you have the lowest-powered, slowest 0.5W processor available in the world, in addition to this cool-running, fan-less (modified) Corsair CS450M power supply. CPU benchmark score is 259 at 800 MHz solo-core with three cores disabled, equivalent performance to Intel Celeron D 320 2.40 GHz Prescott from 2004.

Pros: Small

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent 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: This is my first experience with a semi-modular PSU. First of all, Gold certified, so that's awesome. Second, the cables are easy to manage. Just use the cables you need and store the rest.

Cons: This unit didn't come with enough cables to power all my HDDs/SSDs, so I had to scavenge a molex > SATA from my old computer. If you only got one or two drives, you'll be fine, though. Certainly not worth losing an egg over.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks but a little concern

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: Modular, Gold Plus Certified, no issues with my Linux build with Slackware 14.1.

Cons: Just a little concern I have is this white hardened liquid inside of the supply chassis.
Hasn't affected anything so far, but it would be great if I knew what it was.

5 out of 5 eggsEfficient and quiet 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: The Cosair was on sale, was 80+ gold rated for effiency, met my power supply requirements, and had good editor reviews. The semi modular cabling was also a nice plus. It still leaves plenty of room to step up to a GTX 960, 970, or similar card in the future (I’m assuming the 960 will be below the 970’s 140ish watt TDP).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got an email from Corsair saying my rebate was processed and on the way. Crossing my fingers that it makes it to my mailbox.
