Summary: Had this thing on a rig for 4 years and counting still hasn't given me a single problem its been taken to LAN parties dropped a few times (inside the case of course) Would definitely buy again great for budget!
Pros: Changes colors, Fan isn't on unless absolutely needed, Braided cable, doesn't run very hot even on big loads, quietest PSU i've owned.
Cons: Not gold grade not gonna dock a egg you get what you pay for
Summary: Bought this back in September 2014 and just finished putting together a new FX8350 system. I really liked how the Corsair PSU fit and looked in the Corsair case. Everything was perfect for the first 2 days until the buzzing.
Pros: I bought this refurb unit on sale at Newegg at a terrific bargain. PSU is rock solid and voltages are spot on and steady. Efficient as it generates very little heat running my FX8350 and GTX470. Cables are all wrapped and all the connectors fit is perfect. Very quiet power supply with the excepti...
Cons: My power supply has the infamous annoying fan buzz. Every time the fan cuts on there is an irritating buzz coming from the power supply. This was a common problem with this PSU. Don't know how Corsair could let that one slip past quality control on an otherwise excellent PSU.
Summary: The only thing that concerns me is that the PSU fan doesn't spin until this unit gets EXTREMELY hot. If you stick your hand in the case near the PSU, it feels very hot which concerns me a little. I guess heat is not much of a concern for Corsair PSUs.
Pros: Very quiet, very powerful, plenty of connectors. Has 3 led colors (to those who are interested). And it comes with a FIVE YEAR WARRANTY! Can't beat that! Very good PSU for a great price.
Summary: Curious to see what the 8 core 220 watt 9590 does to the equation.
Pros: I bought this in an emergency situation from a local store. It replaced one that got so hot the cooling fins contorted from the heat. I slapped this one in and it has worked every since quietly supplying power. It survided what the other one could not an AMD overclocking test. My machine is a an ...
Cons: Installing the cables was a little challenging and I wish the internal fan on the PSU would come on a little more often so I know it is working.
