4 out of 5 eggsStable and 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: - Modular cable system lets you reduce cable clutter
- Gold certification keeps the PSU cool with energy efficient power delivery
- Fan runs slowly

Cons: - Only one external PCI-E power connector
- Modular cables look thin and plastic sheathing feels cheap

Other Thoughts: I am not exactly stressing the power supply but does well for the price. The major selling point was getting the gold certification and modular cables at this price point.

1 out of 5 eggsAVOID - WARRANTY SHORTER THAN ADVERTISED

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

Cons: Newegg's website falsely advertised this product as having a 5-year warranty on parts and labor. Upon delivery, the front panel of the box says that the product has only a 3-year warranty. I double-checked Newegg's product description, and the product description has changed since I ordered the PSU two days ago -- A) now the 5-year warranty statement is no longer a part of the description's header, and no warranty length is mentioned there; B) the Quick Info box continues to falsely list the product as having a 5-year warranty; the Specifications > Features page now lists the product as having a 3-year warranty.

I am not at all happy that I paid for a device that was advertised with a 5-year warranty, and that I received a device that actually has a 3-year warranty. I feel like I'm the victim of fraud.

5 out of 5 eggsLoving Modular

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 - Removing the ton of unused cords means less case clutter, and makes tinkering under the hood easier.

*80 Plus Gold - Knowing that with this Powersupply it still runs at least 80% efficient @ 20% its maximum draw, which is no more than what my setup is going to pull. So it...

*Stays cool - and...
*Quiet

Cons: None really. The rebate felt like it took forever to get to me. Not that it's any more or less time than I expected; I'm just impatient.

Other Thoughts: I've had this for a couple of months now. It's currently powering my Am1 PC. I could've gone with a lower wattage unit, but a modular, 80 gold plus corsair powersupply for $30 was a steal. I went with this over any other power supply because for the same price I would've had a lower quality, less efficient, and non modular power supply. It's maybe overkill, but it gives me piece of mind knowing I have a quality PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsJust to say "Rebate worked!"

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 nice basic black design. Modular cables come with ample cable straps and all flat except 24-pin. Cable lengths are reasonable. Fan is not just quiet, it is inaudible.

Cons: Just like all the other power supplies, you have to go through rebate process.

Other Thoughts: This has been light-use for me on an embedded processor Mini-ITX so I have not stressed it to any degree. I am doing this review only to tell others that the rebate process worked flawlessly for me. Eight weeks total time since submission, which seems reasonable for that unreasonably long rebate process everywhere. From past bad experiences I generally avoid products requiring a rebate, but that seems impossible for power supplies.

Pros: free after rebate. shouldn't have complain too much.

Cons: But, it is noisy. as noisy as many other OEM PSU. Anyway, I have to deal with it.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and 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: Quiet
Efficient
Cheap
short and lightweight
Somewhat modular

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I got this on sale for $30. It replaced a Seasonic 360GP, which was lower wattage and had an electric whine, although you couldn't heart it unless you were close by. This Corsair unit is superior in several ways. First, it is lightweight and short, which makes installation easy in a small ITX case. The Seasonic was almost as heavy as the case it was being installed in, and the length pushed up against the drive cages. The Corsair is a vast improvement in this regard. You also get 450w versus 360w, which gives a bit more headroom. Technically it is better to get the lower watt power supply for better efficiency, but they are close enough to where the difference isn't really worth it. The Corsair fan is extremely quiet and spins slowly while keeping cool. The cables are thinner and have no braiding, but they are much easier to maneuver in a small case. The cables are modular and there are six plugs and six sets of cables, but even in a conservative build you will be using 5 of them already so being modular wasn't really necessary, and there's not enough power or cables if you plan on building a fuller system anyway. But for a small quiet power supply on the cheap for a small quiet computer, this works great.

4 out of 5 eggsDoesn't come with advertised cables!

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: 1) Cheap when purchased with a rebate.
2) Semi-modular
3) Corsair customer service (see other thoughts)

Cons: 1) Did not come with advertised cables! Upon receiving this psu, I noticed that although it clearly states that it supports 4 sata connections, the 2 sata cables that it ships with only has 2 connectors per cable, which means you either have to A) Buy molex to sata adapters, B) Only connect 2 sata powered devices, C) Connect both sata cables, but not the molex cables. I guess if you only have an hdd and an optical drive this isn't a problem, but anything beyond that, and you have to buy something else to make it work.
