2 out of 5 eggsGood part. Bad service

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: It's what I needed, and the price is good. It works

Cons: It arrived with a huge dent in it. Seriously huge. The part is still functional, and I do not have time to return it and get a new one, but this is really not what I want to see when buying from NewEgg.

I bought it with multiple other parts, and they were all packaged together, leading me to believe that this piece was damaged before being packaged and sent to me.

5 out of 5 eggsA good modular psu

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: If you're starting out and your build is fairly efficient, then this is a great psu for you. Semi Modular, every cable that comes out of my psu serves a purpose.

Cons: The cable for the cpu power was just a little bit shorter than I would have liked. I still managed to route it the way I wanted to, but it just barely reached.

Other Thoughts: I have an intel core i5 4670k, asus z87 pro, 1 ssd, 1 hdd and a gigabyte gtx 760 and it supports my build.

I know it says SLI ready, but I wouldn't use this for SLI.
Pointless adverts ftw.

This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX500M 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Corsair - these guys know how to make good, reliable hardware.
Modular - trust me, this is important.

Cons: Not free?

Other Thoughts: Perfect for reliable budget/low power general purpose builds. In fact considering that there are now high performance low power graffics cards (nVidia GTX750ti - 60W) and CPUs, you could build a decent budget gaming system with this.

Bought this one after previous power supply in PC that I built for my dad some time ago died. No problems so far.

Used bunch of other corsair products (RAM, liquid CPU cooler, PSUs, ...) - had no problems with any of them yet except that single power supply that died.
