Pros: small and compact
affordable (got it for $50 w/ $20 rebate)
Cons: long thick modular cables leaves excess cabling
No braided sleeving
Type 4 PCIE cables (uncommon for most PSU's)
Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a PSU to complete your budget build this is it. However you may wanna use other modular cabling other than what the PSU comes with especially for cable management's sake.
Had an issue where I was trying to troubleshoot a potential PSU problem by switching out this PSU with another one from different system of mine. I left the cables from this Corsair PSU connected to my peripherals in the same system while I only switched out the PSU. When I started my system, I was prompted by a BIOS error screen and it was only recognizing my mouse and keyboard. Come to find out, the proprietary cables from the Corsair PSU fried my peripherals which included a 512GB SSD, 3TB HDD, and 1TB HDD. When I pulled the peripherals out of the system, they had a burning smell coming from them. I should've never ditched buying an EVGA PSU this time around. Never again will I buy a CORSAIR PSU.
