Excerpt: The CX430 is a Computer Power Supply Unit produced by Corsair. It theoretically puts out 430w and costs between £30-£40. ==Ease of Installation== Power supply installation is pretty standard throughout all the brandings, and this model is no different to many of the others on the market.

Summary: Picked this up to upgrade a system after I added a bigger video card. Good power for the price. The local stores had PSU's that were both too much money and not enough power on the 12V rail for my oldest system. Shipping was very fast, I picked the cheapest option and still had it in 2 days from order. Very pleased.
Pros: Good price with rebate. looks good. Plenty of power.
Summary: A great power supply at a no-name price (rebate or price match for around $30). Perfect for mid-range builds with one video card. No power quality issues with the Corsair brand. Cables were plenty long and had enough connectors.
