CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Once plugged in fully, it works without issue and is relatively quiet.

Cons: That 24pin motherboard connector didn't quite fit?!

Other Thoughts: Not sure if I got unlucky or what, but I had a hell of a hard time inserting the 24pin main connector into the motherboard. It just wouldn't go that final millimeter and snap in!! There were no obtrusions or anything in the way. I've assembled tons of PSUs and this is the one that gave me the most trouble.

Ironically, I was replacing a Corsair CX430 with this CX500. You'd think the connectors would match...

Eventually squeezed it in with some alligator pliers... I just hope this was a one time issue and not an indicator of defect within the brand.

Thermaltake TR2 TR-600 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs I guess it's okay, but rebate sucks 05/12/2014

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-600 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: It works

Cons: rebate

Other Thoughts: Works so far, will edit if dies prematurely like others have reported.

Just beware the rebate! It's my fault for not double checking, but evidently Thermaltake only allows a 20 day grace period. The other products I purchased (video card, etc) all had 30 day grace periods, so guess who just got rejected for being 4 days late?

Again, totally my fault and I admit it. But it still infuriates me to no end; first failed rebate in a decade.

ASUS RT-N16 Wireless Router 802.11b/g/n up to 300Mbps DD-WRT Open Source support with USB Storage, Printer And Media Server
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked well out of box, installed tomato on it.

Cons: Died after 1 year, 11 months.

Other Thoughts: It ran fine for almost 2 years, but I turned it on today and the wired portions would no longer work. (Weirdly, the wifi part still operated.)
