cables are long and thick, easy to work with

1 agrees

reasonable price for a power supply

1 agrees

manual power cut-off switch comes in handy sometimes

1 agrees

installation is easy, pre-drilled holes are all where you'd expect

1 agrees

Performence is unbeatable, The CX series has the performance of the very expensive high end units. And the price is affordable. Finally a PSU at a reasonable price, That actually dleivers its rated power. (It's about time America)

Cons

too much cabling for a smaller case, makes for a tight fit

1 agrees

Snobby gamers that have mommy buy them expensive hardware complain about the CX series, This is becaue the CX series performs as good as the expensive PSU's they use, And it is much cheaper.

The Corsair CX430 is a power supply designed to operate flexibly and reliably in a wide variety of systems, and is part of the Corsair Builder Series. This is followed by the Corsair CX430 V2, but doesn't have the same compatibility with European standards, isn't formally 80-Plus certified, and has a shorter 2 year warranty. In all other ways they are the same, including providing a continuous 430 watt power supply at 30°C. A built-in 120mm fan varies in speed depending on the temperature to reduce noise, and the system has up to 80% energy efficiency for less heat generation. The unit has 0.99 Active Power Factor Correction, which ensures that the provided power is clean and reliable with no sudden spikes or drops. A dedicated +12 volt rail is also available for newer components. The built-in cables are extra long and fully-sleeved to support larger cases.

  • Up to 430W at 30°C
  • Supports the latest ATX12V v2.3 standard, backward compatible with ATX12V 2.2 and ATX12V 2.01 systems

  • Up to 80% energy efficiency
  • 0.99 Active Power Factor Correction
