5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Works exactly like it should. No problems.

Cons: None thus far

Other Thoughts: The only problem is the cables are not removable, so if you don't need some of the cables they just muck up your case. I should have read more thoroughly, but other than that great for the price.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: None

Cons: Dead on arrival

Other Thoughts: Bought this against the negative reviews for being DOA, will never buy another power supply from new egg again. btw... plug it in as soon as u get it, i'm fighting to get mine replaced because i'm a few days away from 30 days RMA.

5 out of 5 eggsWhisper Quiet

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Just as the title indicates, the PSU is extremely quiet and was easy to install in my Mini-ITX case.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: There are many cables/connections included with this PSU. It would be better suited for cases with more internal space rather than a mini-itx case, which I installed it in.

2 out of 5 eggsFan Died

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Worked pretty well for about 5 months and fit quite nice. Didn't make too much sound when operating. Good while it lasted.

Cons: The fan died unexpectedly, I have plenty of room for airflow and cleaned it out quite often so there's no reason for the fan to stop working like this. Hoping for a replacement...
