Good buy.

How long till the CIT is all you need or Seasonic or nothing brigade come along.

what can you do with 430 watts? way to much for a htpc and not enough for a gamiing pc.

A mid-range Intel+Nvidia setup would work fine.

I could do to buy a name brand PSU.
The crappy makes just don't cut it with the 8350 and quad-sli.

Some awful 'power-master' or whatever it was called kept my PC going for around 3 months.
Still under warrantee I returned it and got a power-master+
When that broke they sent me another.

It's costing me a heap in postage, but I've an unlimited supply of power supplies.

What size? This is a PSU.

why do i bother,your pc would have to be atleast 6 inches high to fit this in,hardly a 21st century htpc.

Enlighten us then. Show us where to buy a tiny PSU for a modest i3 / 750 ti HTPC.
#11
well you're cpu uses 50 watts on load,the 750 ti uses 65,thats 105 watts,add up all the other bits for 50 watts=170 watts at 100% load does that help or do you need a map?

We were talking about dimensions, so go on.

The only thing I can see is that the CS PSU's are newer and are gold rated, were as the CX are bronze. So slightly less cost to run.

Perfectly capable, I run two hdds, one SSD a 65w cpu and a cheapo HD 5770 with this.

Some of you guys need to realise not everybody wants bleeding edge components?

I have one of these, It once ran i5-2500k, GTX 680 no problems.

I have to agree that 430 watts is useless, most setups need 550 watts min to make sure of future proofing system.

Read above your post.
We over buy power supplies.

If it was fully modular I would have snapped it up, great price all the same.

Guess you've got a pallet of baked beans in the garage too just in case there is a future zombie apocalypse. For some people reliable named brand, good quality and some overhead over the current is enough.

I didn't go building 1.5 car garages to leave enough clearance as future proofing to prevent scratches to that Ferrari I might never get.
#21
Presumably this is fine for a PC ?
#22
I have a 600 watt power supply cause my setup currently uses 550 watt.

If you have a decent system, with a decent graphics card 430 watt is useless.

How did you measure that?

what a load of .......
#25
is it just me? or is it the Amperage on the 12 Volt rail that is the important part?

looking at this for a Dual core with 460 gtx. (gfx needs 24amps so recommended 450watt). but looking at a Cheap 550Watt PSU only delivers 22 amps, where as this Corsair 430watt delivers 32amps on 12volt rail.

so isn't it true that this 430watt is better than a cheap 550watt PSUs?
#26
460gtx would be fine with the CX430 power supply. I know, I've got the CX430
#27
Most of you guys need to assess on how you get your information. You don't NEED a really large power supply unless you're thinking about going sli or crossfire. If you're going to use a single gpu and an i5 430w is plenty. How do I know this? I just ran furmark and prime 95...that's probably the most my pc is ever going to get stressed in its life...my monitor and pc connects through one of those power readers and it TOGETHER it came to 328W. Some people like to give 10% extra on their power supplies...well even with 20% a 430w psu will be fine.
