not modular

Announced on October 14th 2008 and immediately available from select e-tailers, the CX400W is a budget power supply. 50W less powerful and $15 cheaper than the next model up, the VX450W, the non-modular CX400W includes all of the features of a high quality power supply such as 80%+ efficiency, active power-factor correction, sleeved wires, and a thermally controlled 120mm fan. Like most quality computer components, the CX400W carries a 3 year warranty - falling short of the industry leading 5 year guarantee provided for the slightly more expensive Corsair models.
