CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

2 out of 5 eggs It was quiet while it worked 04/06/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: This is a quiet power supply. I've had four of these and they have all been quiet, so I think the reviewers who say otherwise have defective units.

Cons: Of the four CX430s that I've had, two have failed, one spectacularly (sparks and smoke). Another has been running flawlessly for more than two years. And I've only just installed the fourth one, to replace the latest failure, so it's too early to tell whether it is good or not. I think my next replacement power supply to keep on the shelf will not be a CX430.

Other Thoughts: I built two machines, each with a Corsair CX430 power supply. They have both been running for over two years. Neither machine needs anywhere near 430w, so the CX430 should be well up to the task. One machine has had the same power supply since new, and it's running well. The other is on its third CX430, the replacement for the first one having failed this afternoon.
