4 out of 5 eggs24pin bothersome

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

Pros: Once plugged in fully, it works without issue and is relatively quiet.

Cons: That 24pin motherboard connector didn't quite fit?!

Other Thoughts: Not sure if I got unlucky or what, but I had a hell of a hard time inserting the 24pin main connector into the motherboard. It just wouldn't go that final millimeter and snap in!! There were no obtrusions or anything in the way. I've assembled tons of PSUs and this is the one that gave me the most trouble.

Ironically, I was replacing a Corsair CX430 with this CX500. You'd think the connectors would match...

Eventually squeezed it in with some alligator pliers... I just hope this was a one time issue and not an indicator of defect within the brand.

2 out of 5 eggsQA Leaves a lot to be desired.

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

Pros: Standard size, fits well into Corsair Obsidian 250D case.

Cons: I may be one of the unlucky, but the fan in this unit is obnoxiously loud. I can hear the bearings scraping when it spins up. Luckily, it seems to only spin up from time to time. I can tell when it's about to start, because the fan begins clicking. I've seen this from other people, so it seems to be a QA issue - I'll be returning this unit and purchasing another. This is for a micro workstation build and I need something reliable. This might not fit the bill.

Other Thoughts: I'm an IT Manager and have a long history of building boxes for various workloads and scenarios. I still love Corsair and use their products frequently in my builds, so I won't mark this low end unit against them.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We're sorry to hear that your CX500 is making clicking noises. For a replacement, please contact us by submitting a ticket at corsair.force.com or calling us at 888-222-4346 and we'll be more than happy to help you.

Thank you,

1 out of 5 eggsCORSAIR CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

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

Pros: Nice long cables, fully sleeved, allows for excellent cable management in your case. Plenty of connectors.

Cons: PSU began failing within DAYS of being installed in my system, despite being 100W over what Newegg recommended for my rig. Within 6 days of installing software and beginning regular use, the computer did not turn on at all. A quick PSU test showed that the power supply didn't even supply enough power to keep the tester running for more than a few seconds.

You get what you pay for. Hopefully you and I get our money back.

Also, the cables are not modular, but the full sleeves makes them easy enough to manage.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Shipping!

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

Pros: Good price with rebate. Corsair has a great reputation for quality PSUs. Haven't even opened box yet, so can't make any comment more than that yet.

Cons: Like I said above, no comment here yet.

Other Thoughts: Actually, just really wanted to give Newegg props. Super fast shipping! Placed order 2 nights ago for my sister's computer that has a bad PSU and received it this afternoon. I wasn't expecting this for at least another week with the free shipping. Right on for being so prompt! Five stars to Newegg!
