5 out of 5 eggsGood PS

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

Pros: I always prefer Corsair for power supplies, and the rebate for this made it an unbeatable deal.

Included a few zip ties.

Cons: The box did not have a UPC label, which caused my rebate to be rejected. Luckily, Newegg support was able to remedy the situation.

4 out of 5 eggsIt does what it needs to

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

Pros: It is a entry level power supply that won't fail early, and has a decent build quality

Cons: For the Price, nothing really.

Other Thoughts: If you are planning on upgrading your Pc build, definitely go with something more substantial. I wouldn't go any less than 650

5 out of 5 eggsGood Price & Reliable

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

Pros: 4/22/16 Update: 2yrs now without any issues... Good price w/ rebate ($29 total). Running 6mo now w/out any issues. My system only requires 280W, so I'm not demanding much from the P/S. High quality design and manufacturing. Easy to install. No cable management issues. Bought Bronze for medium grade system longevity and reliability.

Cons: None to report. Corsair Bronze should go the distance.

Other Thoughts: I over spec'd by 200W, but wanted room to grow into a power hungry video card. Using Core i5-4570 integrated graphics for now. Amazingly fast for home business use.

5 out of 5 eggsNOT a good choice

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

Pros: Cheap

Cons: 24 pin and cpu power cable does not plug in all the way- this psu is notorious for this problem. It was my first psu buy and I thought it was a good choice because it was cheap and 500w. I should've researched more before I bought it.

Other Thoughts: For around the same price you should probably just go with any other brand, I think the corsair cx series is just not worth it.

1 out of 5 eggsKaput after 15 months

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

Pros: Cheap. Looked like what I needed

Cons: Random restarts started intermittently and got more frequent. After reinstalling windows and all programs, testing memory and running multiple malware and anti-virus programs, swapped out the power supply and computer works fine. I'm a noob, took me a while.... Thanks be to the generous pros that post helpful hints on the forums.

Other Thoughts: Go for the gold. I swapped it with an older Corsair, 750 Gold. I like corsair, the cheapo just failed early I guess. I don't have a power hungry system. MSI Z97 PC Mate, Intel i5-4690K, 16GB(2x8GM) G.Skill, samsung evo 850, dvd drive, plenty of fans and airflow and I don't run it 24/7.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 7 months

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

Pros: Easy to set up

Cons: Died after 7 months.
Even with a meter it reads 7 volts, fan doesn't turn, and my order list says its ineligible for return.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend if it isn't going to last.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

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

Pros: Bought this to upgrade my Acer desktop to support a 750ti FTW video card. I have had no problems out of it since I received it eight months ago.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Buying another one for my new gaming PC build. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing a new PSU

5 out of 5 eggsDoes its job well

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

Pros: 500 watts, pretty beefy for anything that isn't a GTX 980 Ti or a Titan.
Looks fantastic, cables are grouped nicely, covered in a nice tough mesh.
Has the ability to intake air from inside or outside the case.

Cons: Isn't modular, no minus eggs for this of course, I knew that when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: Sits pretty in my case, runs quietly, powers my GTX 960 by Zotac just fine.
Love this PSU all around.
