-80 Bronze or whatever
I bought this PSU because of the price thinking I would need it eventually. NEVER did I expect it to replace my Ultra x3 1000w Modular PSU... but it did.
Short story - had a big computer with lots of power, got a new processor then I build an ITX with more performace than the big tower but my old PSU (1000w ultra) would not fit. So I steal the CS430M from my HTPC (which had a 1045T in it and sucked) and slapped it in the ITX build with my new i5 4670k and guess what, it runs!!!
Cons: -No Badge
I would have loved to see these two things, not going to lose an egg over it though.
Other Thoughts: This thing is running my build and I am happy with it. I have had luck with every Corsair product I have had. New or Used.
Windows 7 x64
MSI GTX 760 HAWK edition (1111Mhz 1185Mhz boost)
ADATA 4GB Ram (its a gaming machine what?)
BitFenix Prodigy (White)
Gigabyte B85N mITX
HDD 250 GB who cares
and second HDD 320 GB holds games
Cons: -Not as powerful as a 7970
Other Thoughts: I went from a 7970 which had 0 performance issue other than physx was missing. I decided to make a lateral move to the HAWK because I was able to sell it for $250 and pick this card up for $260. It was well worth the swap, because I really wanted the physx built into the card, and I wanted something that consumed less power.
The HAWK doesn't disappoint during game play at all. I notice a 10 FPS hit in several games but that 7970 was pumping 70+ FPS in every game so it was an easy trade off for me.
This card will drive quad monitors and GeForce experience is great! I have not OC'd the card at all because I don't need to.
