The Corsair CX500 is a power supply designed to be compatible with a wide range of case designs and motherboards. This model has been followed by the Corsair CX500 V2, which adds a formal 80 PLUS certification and extends the warranty to 3 years. They are otherwise the same, with a 500 watt output that remains continuous at 30°C. A 120mm fan maintains a constant temperature inside the power supply by providing a variable airflow that responds to the heat being emmitted. Up to 80% energy efficiency reduces the amount of heat generated and also saves money on electric bills. The Universal AC input adjusts itself on the fly from 90 to 264 volt compatibility, and protection is built in for over-voltage and under-voltage. To make it easier to work with, the fully-sleeved cables are extra long for full sized towers.
