  • Summary: Excellent PSU, VERY quiet and low heat. It is not a modular system so all cables are attached and you need to find somewhere to stuff any unused ones.

Two of these units failed on me - terrible!

  • Summary: I decided to ignore the negative ratings this PSU has received from some customers on the grounds that there were also enough positive reviews and I like Corsair products. Packaging was good - a box within a box and delivery time prompt. The initially feel to the item was that of quality.

  • Summary: I purchased this PSU for my first attempt at building my own PC. It contains all the power connectors you could need, for HDDs, DVD drives, graphics cards and fans. Have not had any problems with the PSU in my build. 100% Recommend this.

Looks good, heavy, lots of cabling options - broke

  • Summary: I've had 2 of these and both blew in a few months. I thought Corsair were a good brand and maybe they are but this model needs some quality control. I'm a professional computer engineer so when I supply products to my customers I need to know they are reliable. I cannot recommend this one now. OCZ do a similar model for a little bit more and it seems a lot more reliable.

  • Summary: At first glance this seems like an alright pice of kit. But don't be fooled by its branding. I've purchased 2 of these power supplies in the past few months and both have failed within 6 months. (please note only one was bought from Amazon.co.uk) The first power supply was for my own custom pc which I built, I made sure it was the right wattage for the job and bought it, after a period of about 2 weeks a small electrical noise began to emit from the power supply, having...
