Tons of power for high end video cards

  • Summary: I used this to replace a lower wattage 3 year old Seasonic power supply. Installation was pretty straightfoward, except for the fact that it did not like the cables that came with the Seasonic. The plugs were just different enough that they would not work. That was rather irritating. Not sure if that's Seasonics fault or Corsairs though. But it puts out tons of power and is quiet enough, even under load.

  • Summary: Does exactly what it needs to. Comes with many cables for most types of connections the fan is not noticeable. Modular is the way to go for cable management.
  • Pros: Quite, Modular, reliable
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: This psu worked for an hour or 2 and then failed and fried my motherboard... Socket 1366 i havent even been able to find a board yet to test to see if it destroyed anything else. Might want to look elsewhere for a psu. My mind is blown as well cant believe this from Corsair :( UPDATE 5/20/2013: Finally replaced motherboard.... PSU fried both video cards as well.... motherboard = 250$ OS = 150$ ATI 6870 x2 = 500$ TOTAL = 900$ OUCH!!!!

  • Summary: Had this for 6 months running an i7 3770k overclocked to 4.5Ghz and running 2 GTX 660s in SLI. It's still pumping juice into my rig very well and doesn't waste power by having the fan on un-necessarily. Great PSU!
  • Pros: - Fully modular, - Clean cable sleeves, - You can buy individual sleeved cables in different colors off the Corsair website!, - Fan only goes on when needed
  • Cons: - A little bit on the pricey side, but for what you get, it's worth it!

Excellent Power Supply

  • Summary: I have been building custom PC's for over 15yrs and have only used two brands of power supply. Of those two, Corsair has always been my first choice.
  • Pros: Modular plug design is great for keeping the inside of your computer chassis clean and wire-management easy
  • Cons: Tends to run a bit hotter than some other PS brands. Make sure you have sufficient ventilation.
