5 out of 5 eggsComputer Runs Again

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS550M 550W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Whisper quiet
550W
My computer's running again

Newegg delivered in a consecutive days time with standard. I'm appreciative that I didn't have to wait much longer without using my PC.

Cons: None, yet.

Other Thoughts: I was going to get this PSU in due time. Alas, my old PSU died and thank goodness it didn't take anything with it when it did. It was simple putting this in, although it was my first time doing so (if I can do it, you can too!).

I was concerened that it wasn't working properly because I didn't hear a fan wind to a start. In fact, I cannot hear any fans running whatsoever now that I have this installed. So far I presume it's worth the purchase, I will update in some time if I have any problems with it.

4 out of 5 eggsRunning like the day I got it

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS550M 550W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: -Quiet
-Comes with a number of accessories (zipties/removable cables ect)
-Nice black finish with green model lettering
-Has a very open ventilation grill

Cons: One thing that bothered me bothered me about the product was that it was advertised as "modular". When I got the power supply I was surprised to see that it had the 24 pin power cable attached to the back of the unit. Its not a huge deal seeing as how you'll be using that connector anyways, but I would have classified this product as "semi-modular"

Other Thoughts: Hoping it keeps up the great work for the next couple years

2 out of 5 eggsCrapped out 3 Months later

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS550M 550W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: The first one I bought is still running in my other computer.

Cons: Started clicking and randomly restarting my computer after 4 months. $85 for a power supply, and I expect it to last longer than that. It may have a manufacturing warranty, but who wants to spend there personal time off work haggling about w/ all that. Sending it off, packaging etc.

Other Thoughts: I paid extra cash for premium, I expect premium.

Pros: - Easy to use

2 out of 5 eggsVERY NOSIY

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS550M 550W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Everything works as described but...

Cons: This bad boy is VERY NOISY. At first start up its quiet but, I expect, as it begins to heat up the fan must spin at top speeds cause, like other reviews, it starts to buzz.

Other Thoughts: The last two fans for my build, there were too big, were very quiet. I don't know why this is so noisy. I think Im going to try to replace the fan with something better and see if that helps. The noise is bareable for me since I use Corsairs H2100 wireless gaming headset.This product gets 2 eggs cause I expect a higher build quality from corsair. All other products that I have had have been awesome.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS550M 550W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Modular is the way to go. Makes it a ton easier to wire, organize cables and to upgrade.

Cons: Short cables. Not the best choice for a mid+ sized case.

2 out of 5 eggsonly good for a mini case

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS550M 550W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: It is modular

Cons: cables are too short for a mid tower case, proprietary pinout so I cant even swap the cables from my SMALLER SS power supply.

Other Thoughts: Id heard good things about Corsairs supplys, but this has been a pita.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsChinese psu

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS550M 550W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Update - maybe it was some growing pains but the buzzing has ceased after a week or so, pretty silent now.
-modular
-mostly flat cables
-mostly black cables
-gold rated
-pretty quiet

Cons: -Wires are still a little stiff and scratched the window on my s340
-24pin cable is not fully sleeved like the other cables which makes the multicolored wires visible when connected to the mobo
-buzzing after a month but stopped after a week or so
-chinese capacitors

Other Thoughts: picked it up for a good price, some flaws but seems decent aside from those things mentioned, will update later
