Summary: 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. The power supply is designed to be put in a case that supports ATX, but may also fit in a variety of other cases, including some mATX cases.
Pros: It's sturdy, can pack a punch in power and will protect your system from damage.

Summary: This is a simple basic power supply that will easily power HTPC or any generic home system. The price is good, fairly quiet. I used it for a HTPC build in a mATX case, just wished it was partially modular so I can remove all the unused PCIE, molex, and sata connectors.
Pros: -Price, -Low noise
Cons: -Small complaint, but wish it was partially modular
