CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Size
-Semi-Modular
-Color
-80 Bronze or whatever
-Price
-Quiet

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
-Semi-Modular

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.

RIG:
Windows 7 x64
i5 4670k
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

MSI N760 HAWK G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: +Build
+Design
+Colors
+Cooling
+Black PCB
+Noise
+Price!

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.

RIG
i7 930
Liquid cooled (H60 wannabe)
