CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Quiet, efficient. Looks nice on the outside.

Cons: Upon opening the unit to replace the fan (see my first review below), I discovered that additionally it has a bulging electrolytic capacitor ready to burst, complete with electrolyte leaking out the top vent. The cap is 3300 uF 16V, brand name "Su'scon" SD series.

Also some of the soldering is incredibly sloppy, though I do not think that has affected the functionality any.

Anyway I do not trust the Corsair name anymore for PSUs especially considering how many others have reported failure after a few years and my first one was DoA.

1 out of 5 eggs First DoA, second died at 4 years 05/31/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

Pros: Quiet and high efficiency.

Cons: The first one I got was DoA. The output voltages were very low and the computer would not start. After having to pay for return shipping, the next one worked. However just recently the fan broke. Somehow the bearing came apart so the blade assembly fell downward and now clacks loudly on the bottom grill. It's 4 years old. That's not that long a time. I've seen no-name OEM PSUs greatly surpass that. Disappointing. I think I will open it up and replace the fan myself since warranty is passed.

ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler - Intel & AMD, Multi-Directional Mount, 92mm PWM Fan

5 out of 5 eggs Quiet, Efficient, and Reliable 05/31/2014

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler - Intel & AMD, Multi-Directional Mount, 92mm PWM Fan

Pros: I have had one of these running for 6 years now and it continues to work great. It is very efficient so most of the time the fan can run at low speed and it is practically silent from outside the case.

Cons: The noise of the fan motor has increased slightly. But what do you expect after 6 years? Still it is only noticeable if you have the case open and are actually listening to it; in normal usage it is still not noticeable.
