CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
  • ATX12V V2.2
  • 80 PLUS Certified
  • 90 - 264 V 50/60 Hz
  • +3.3V@30A, +5V@20A, +12V@41A, -12V@0.8A, +5VSB@3A
  • ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply

Pros:

The power supply is fine. Comes with plenty of cables, very lengthy, everything you could need. See the CONS for the big problem with this power supply.

Cons:

Every single 550VX has a buzzing fan. Yes, all of them. Check the Corsair forums. Some people have gone through four or five of these units (RMA'ing) and every single time the PSU fan makes a buzzing noise. Do not buy this PSU if the noise will bother you!

Other Thoughts:

Corsair insists all of their PSU's are top quality. Which is true for *some* of their units. But the 550VX is just a huge mistake.
