Summary: As with anything made by corsair it is built with quality, I've had no problems with it running a AMD bulldozer running at 3.3 & 3.9 turbo (at the moment haha) Asus atx motherboard (can't remember model) just buy it now its a bargain
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.

OCZ do a similar model for a little bit more and it seems a lot more reliable.

(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...
Summary: i brought this to power my first pc build i have it running a standard atx motherboard an fx 4100 an ssd a radeon hd 6770 a couple of fans and a DVD drive and i know its not pushing it to its limits but it isn't actually that loud and doesn't seem to get that hot i think its a great power supply doesn't have that many cables so its easy to make tidy if you have a decent case with good cable management great but if you have the money go for the cx 600 v2 just for the...
