CORSAIR CX Series CX600 600W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: cheap. yet not a TERRIBLE psu, good brand name but mediocre quality.

Cons: do not get this if youre building a higher end rig. for example i had this psu in a rig with a gtx 680 @ 1200mhz and an i5 3570k @ 4.3ghz. on paper 600watt should be enough but it doesnt handle the rig very well. makes all sorts of buzzing/ whining noises (presumably capacitors or other components) and later on the fan bearings TOTALLY destroyed themselves, ive had this PSU for only about 8 months, and i RARELY move the machine around, so there is zero excuse for the shot bearings.

Other Thoughts: going to replace with a corsair RM 750 ASAP. moral of the story: If youre going to build a relatively high end rig(i.e. gtx 670 or 680 or gtx 770 or 780 or higher dont get a budget level CX series like this. if you do REST ASSURED it will develop all kinds of buzzing noises, trash itself, and probably totally die within a year or so.

MSI GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 N680 PE 2GD5/OC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: looks great while sitting on the table, broken.

Cons: DOA. dead on arrival. did everything perfect, 100% positive the things dead. even contacted msi tech support in a last-ditch effort to see if he could give me some troubleshooting ideas that maybe i havent thought of, but after i told him the exact situation, he didnt even give me any procedures. He just said "yeah, its DOA, dead on arival." and of course when i contact newegg they wont send me a new one because they just so happened to run out of stock right after i got mine. The lady didnt even know when there was going to be a new shipment in.

Other Thoughts: going to return for cash. bought the msi 680 from superbiiz instead. great site, has lower prices than newegg.
