5 out of 5 eggsIt powers the video games and I pay the bill

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CS650M Power Supply

Pros: So far, so good. I've had the power supply running in my new build for a few months, and it's holding up nicely. The cables are good, you get what you need, and they are all nice quality. Hefty. Nice fan. No problems here- let's hope it holds up like my other power supplies have.

Cons: Can't really think of any (aside from the price since I'm cheap).

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet & Reliable

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CS650M Power Supply

Pros: Quiet, Effecient, Reliable, Semi Modular, Small, nice looking

Cons: Not completely modular, 24 pin nod braided to the connector

Other Thoughts: It's not completely modular which I knew buying it and the other cables look quiet clean. But the 24 pin connector is not braided to the connector not even close so lots of colored wires show if you try to keep those runs clean. However it is a very very nice power supply especially for the price i payed 10/10 would recommend this product

3 out of 5 eggsCabling...

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CS650M Power Supply

Pros: It is a Corsair... I have used these exclusively for years and never had any operational issues with them. Solid performance and clean power.

Cons: The cabling on these type 3 units from Corsair are not very accommodating if you have a case that mounts the PSU at the top, the SATA cables will be in the wrong direction... I know I can remove the caps and flip the connectors but I don't think I should have to mess with a new PSU for that when the solution would simply be to provide at least one cable for top mounted installs.

Two eggs come off just cause I have to mount the HDs upside down now so the cable can reach the top of the case.

Just so I am clear the thing functions just fine like I have it installed, just looks kinda fugly to have the drives upside down...

4 out of 5 eggsTimely... to say the least.

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CS650M Power Supply

Pros: -Arrived in 24 hours!!
-Slim and flexible enough sata power cable to install in my (very cramped) raid cage

Cons: So far I haven't been let down by corsair's 80+gold PSU's, including this one. I guess my oldest one is only 2 years, but still.

Other Thoughts: BSOD, mobo power surge, workstation wont turn on. But hey- ordered this from newegg and was down for less than 24 hours!

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair,s CS650M PSU Review

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CS650M Power Supply

Pros: Well to start a nice little modular psu. I like the main cable being braided wish the rest were to but for the price not bad, Should be a really feasible little psu for a mid range gaming machine, I used it on an Msi NF980-G65 Mother Board. worked really well, using an AMD Phenom II X6 Processor. And a NVidia GTX 570 Graphics Card. two ssd hard drives a 256GB And a 512gb. and 8 Gigabytes of Kingston Hyper X Memory 4x by 2x chips. And also a wireless PCI card. never had a problem at all didn't seem to have any issues keeping every thing running strong.

Cons: wish all of the other cables would have been braided to lol but that's just me.

Other Thoughts: Good price and good 650 watt Unit for the money if you need a good power supply for a midrange gaming system.

1 out of 5 eggsNeed cables!

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CS650M Power Supply

Pros: None. How can I rate it, if it won't turn on?

Cons: I am searching all over the Internet for an ATX12V 4 pin cable. So far I have found one that fits, but does not work with the Corsair. I thought that it would be a cool idea to buy a modular unit... but if you can't find the cables, then what is the point? Very disappointed! Double and tripple check the cables that are included, or you will be stuck with an oversized paperweight like me.

1 out of 5 eggsDied in 2 months

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CS650M Power Supply

Pros: Worked perfect for the short while I had it.

Cons: Died after 2 months of moderate use. Did not even near max the output and one day it just stopped working. My off brand psu has lasted ten times that.

30 day warranty is kind of salt in the wound for a psu.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CS650M Power Supply

Pros: This power supply serves as an excellent foundation for a quiet medium-powered gaming rig. Although it's not completely silent, I almost never hear it over the case and GPU fans, which are already pretty quiet, as I favor low-noise PC builds Powered by this PSU, my system is rock-solid stable. I have gamed and browsed for many hours without a hiccup. Would purchase again.

Cons: *If you want complete silence, a Seasonic fanless 520W with a 7-year warranty is only $25 more.
*One day, there was some straining sound from the PSU fan, but that issue has completely gone away.

Other Thoughts: This power supply is not completely modular, but I don't consider that a con unless you intend to use fancy custom cables.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet. Effecient. Perfect for Mid-Range PC's

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CS650M Power Supply

Pros: - 2 weeks of contant use (pc left on 24/7) and not a single problem.
- Cool and quiet. PSU fan is barely audible.
- Enough connectors to meet the needs of most mid-range PC's.
It's currently powering 5 HDD's, 1 SSD, 1 DVD drive, 4 case fans, and a 6+8pin video card without issue.
- Modular! I personally only use modular PSU's ever since I purchased my first one. If you don't need the connectors just don't plug them in. Makes cable management easy for people who like a clean and organized case.
- Cable length is great. PSU is sitting in an Antec 1200 full tower. This is a massive case and I have no issues reaching every installed component requiring power.
- Highly energy efficient and the cost. There's a reason I grouped these two together. While this PSU might seem expensive compared to some others that fall in the same power range, it's made up for by the 80Plus Gold certification. This PSU will cost you a little more upfront but cost of ownership over its lifetime is less. These are generic numbers (used just as an example only!): spend thirty bucks more now but save sixty on your electric bill over the next 2-3 years on this psu versus another less energy effecient model.

Cons: There's not really anything that can be said here. Compared to other mid-range psu's this thing delivers. If I had to nitpick it would be that upfront cost but as pointed out above, provided you're thinking 2 or 3 years down the road, it's not really a con at all.

Other Thoughts: There's not much to say about a psu. In this power range there's a lot of competition to choose from. Over my techy lifetime I've owned somewhere around 20+ Corsair products ranging from simple case fans to high end SSD's and I'm happily adding this power supply to my collection. If you're in the market for a 600-650watt psu, let me save you a lot of clicking: If this psu will meet your power needs, add it to cart and call it a day.

4 out of 5 eggs$100 and Gold plus

This review is from: CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CS650M Power Supply

Pros: High end of the gold plus scale.

Chemi com Primary Capacitors.

Flat sleeved cabling.

Small Stature

Great price-point for anyone running a single high-end video card needing to save on a PSU.

Stickers on each side are flipped so it will read right side up however you mount it in the average case.

Cons: Sleeve bearing fan.

Teapo Capacitors for everything else.

24 pin cable not flat or fully sleeved.

RM series is only a few $ more for a better fan and better warranty.

Other Thoughts: I ran this on my PC for an hour at a 590w draw (640 from the wall) the fan can be audible but not bad. It was stabil and never fluctuated much on any of the voltages. My PC is an older Q9450 @ 3.733GHz with 2x GTX460's @ 920 MHz. I did not loose any stability at all running this PSU at it's MAX for that period.
