Rated 5 out of 5 by StephenInSheffield Helped breathe life back into an ageing PC
Bought one of these for a friend recently after her 12yr old 200W PSU died.
Works really well, and is useful because it has a 20+4 ATX power connector. As her PC motherboard only required the 20-pin connector, it was a simple case of unclipping the extra 2x2 set of pins.
Same goes with the CPU power, which comprises of two 2x2 (i.e. two 4-pin) pin connectors, as only one set of 2x2's was required for the CPU.
My only criticism of this power supply would be that I feel the CD/hard disk power cables (the non-SATA types) are a bit short - so much that it was impractical to be able to connect the floppy drive with power.
OK, so an extension lead would help, but I was surprised I'd have this issue with a small-ish tower case.

Suffice to say, good quality.
This PSU seems reasonable for the 'average' user. A 500 watt seems overkill, unless you have a graphics card using 200/250watt on its own..otherwise, this is ideal.
Indeed, for those with just a GPU using 100 watts or less.. this is going to save money in the long run...with good efficiency, and 15% or so less than a 500 watt.
Good cabling, and they are plenty long enough for full size tower case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ken10 As good as they say, but one thing to note.
All the intel I found on this unit was pretty much in line with what was in the box: a good unit, well made (by my reckoning). Nice touch with the sheathing over the cabling. The only thing is that the floppy drive and the two optical drives in my case are quite far apart and the cable that serves them all did not have enough length to reach them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Poprin Superb quality v's value
For £35 you get a brand name power supply with a smart look and braided cables. I don't think you can go wrong, I've read some nay sayers on the internet saying that the CX series power supplies from Corsair are not up to the standard they once were. I have however found no evidence to support this and my experience with this unit has been nothing but positive.
