Bronze! £50! You would have to be high to buy!

There was a platinum seasonic on here the other day for about £80.

There was a gold EVGA too last week a little cheaper than the seasonic.

There is a difference between a deal and cheap and nasty... But this is neither, it's overpriced at £50 and still nasty.
Really good price for a semi-modular PSU by corsair

So 40% and 70% more expensive. The EVGA isn't even any better in terms of the components used; it falls in the same bracket in the tier list. It's just 750W and runs 5% more efficient (saving about 0.2p per hour on a typical gaming PC).

Both are decent deals. But they don't really overshadow this one. It's a cracking PSU for someone who's looking at the <£50 bracket.

Was going to explain it , but honestly I'm not getting paid so whatever.
Your choice, not my issue.

This is not a great PSU. It’s actually not hard to get 80 PLUS Bronze these days in 2019, computer components are just better than 10-15 years ago where Bronze status meant you had to engineer it well. The fan is a nasty sleeve bearing thing so it’s noisy and prone to failure, which in turn kills your PSU if it goes wrong. Why do people cheap out on a PSU? I’m not saying go for Gold or Platinum all the time but at least pay a little more, I’d be buying an EVGA GQ/G2/G3 or a Corsair RM/TX/CS and even if it was 20-30% extra, it’s better all round and money well spent and it should last longer too. If you’re thinking of it as ‘I won’t save the extra in power efficiency’ then you’re not seeing it correctly...

Which is mechanically similar to a sleeve bearing fan... either way, it doesn't make this a particularly good power supply.
Ha ha ha someone couldn't beat my ripple suppression argument so reported my post.
No wonder the world is like it is.
Don't like reality? Tell people it's fake news.
Waiting for Prime day and some deals close to this price, but on Corsair RMx, or Seasonic Focus gold, or EVGA G3. This one isn't a very impressive PSU for the price ...

I bought the 450W CX-M for a new build in January 2018 (Ryzen 7 1700x, 1060GTX, etc.). I've had the odd issue with reboots and game freezes and its starting to get worse. I'm fairly sure the issues are caused by the design of the CX-M and the quality of components it contains (as 450W should be sufficient for me - see part list uk.pcpartpicker.com/lis…ncY).

After reading some reviews this morning, I've invested in a 550W Corsair RMx for £71.42 from Amazon (Prime)...

I nearly went for the G3, but apparently it's a bit loud (and I like my silence, see part list :))

Caused by the design? Doubtful. There's not really anything wrong with the design of the CX-M, or the components used. It shouldn't be inherently unreliable.

It could be faulty. It's also quite possible (given the stated symptoms) that the motherboard is faulty.
