CORSAIR CX500 — 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Power Supply

CORSAIR

An ideal choice for value-conscious system builders and upgraders

CX Series power supply units are an excellent choice for basic system builds and desktop PC computer upgrades. CX Series PSUs are available in a variety of power configurations, and include features that are normally found only on premium power supplies.

Reliable and compatible
CX Series is built and tested to strict standards for trouble-free installation and smooth operation.

CORSAIR

Low noise
80 PLUS Bronze certified efficiency and clever fan design allow for little or no detectable fan noise during regular operation.

CORSAIR

Good looks
The matte black finish, black-sleeved cables and black connectors help give your system a restrained, high-tech look.

Corsair engineering and quality control
Every Corsair power supply is designed by our California engineering team and built to our exact specifications. The same care that goes into the design and testing of our renowned high-power enthusiast power supplies also goes into the CX Series, because you need confidence and reliability regardless of your build budget.

Ample connectors and long cables
Long cables make CX Series suitable for installation even in full-height tower cases, and the generous cable count allows you to power multiple components and storage devices.

CORSAIR

Large-diameter, thermally controlled fan
Once you’ve installed a PSU, you shouldn’t have to think about it. Employing a thermally controlled fan makes the CX Series virtually silent at idle, and the large diameter reduces noise even when you’re pushing your system hard.

Black goes with everything
You’re building a PC, not a battleship, and appearance counts. The matte black finish and all-black sleeved cables and connectors help give your system a high-tech, restrained look.

Great little power supply!

Pros: I've been running it basically 24 hours a day most days for the last 4 and a half years. I run Ubuntu 16.01, have a Athlon II X3 440 cpu, and 8 Gigs of Ripjaw X (1600 O.C.) ram. Mostly watch Netflix or other video applications along with some Linux programs, and it still works great.

Cons: none that I can think of. no problems so far. 4 and a half years in... I don't run big applications or 3D rendering, anything like that.

Overall Review: well worth the price.

Be wary of using with RTX cards

Pros: -Good for budget builds

Cons: I added an RTX 2060 to my build and i think this PSU may have fried it. Went black while playing a game, fans hit max speed, and the graphics card wouldn't power back on. Reached out to the manufacturer and they stated that the new RTX cards are sensitive to lower quality PSU's.

Bad PWR Supply

Pros: None

Cons: Not a clean power supply. Connected one of the 5v Vcc to my oscilloscope. Tons of static! The worst I've seen. Also 4 days after using the PWR supply the cooling fan was making the bearing noise, needed to be disassembled and oiled. Noticed the grease balled on end of the fan shaft.

Overall Review: Terrible product. Stay away from this one. Can't believe Corsair would sell such a bad product.
