Corsair are over rated. I'd choose XFX or beQuiet over them anyday.

Ive used Corsair in the past and never let me down so i still trust em haha

As this is not one of the seasonic based units, I would pay the extra £15 (if you get free delivery) and get this

I installed a Corsair about 3 weeks ago (not this one, a cheaper model) so it's too early to tell...but it has a 3 year warranty so I'm not too concerned!

For PSU's, they wouldn't be my first choice. So many people buy them but there are usually better alternatives hence why they're over rated.
I need a new PSU but Corsair aren't one of my choices.

I'd pay £10 extra and get the one of the XFX's, bigger fan and based on Seasonic PSU's so have all their capacitors made in Japan.

All i can say is everyone's view on these are all different and i enjoy seeing other peoples views on things, especially computer components

I use a Corsair TX750M and it's really nice and quiet.

The returns base for Europe is in the Netherlands, so the warranty is of questionable value on the cheaper models considering the cost of sending a package there.

I purchased this model from Amazon 6 months ago, it failed a month ago, replaced swiftly by amazon ofc!

Mine was also (and purposely!) purchased via Amazon as I know they're likely to back up any warranty claims.

I have had a CX600 for about 2 yrs without problems, the only downside is that the cables seem to be more steel than copper and they are sometimes difficult to run round the case.

Well yes, I wasn't that impressed that I had to order an extension cable as they weren't long enough in a standard ATX case to reach two hard drives and one bluray/dvd drive! It's not the £2.50 price of the extensive cable...it's just lazy design and waiting another couple of days for the cable to arrive before finishing the install!

As would I. Corsair units aren't what they once were for the most part. The CX are pretty mediocre.

Second from bottom. Regardless, you can do better.

I still have my tx650. Does the job very well

I've been using this exact model for about 6 months. It runs quiet, and found it easy to install into a Corsair 200r case. I found the cables flexible and long enough.

It is not about the label, you should check who builds them. most Corsairs and XFX are built by Seasonic.
Although I don't think the CX ones are.

Personally I still have a Seasonic (S12+ 650W) since 2006-07. rock solid. So yeah, I'd go with Seasonic own brand over anything else

I just ordered myself a Evga SuperNova 750W for same price Semi modular

I've had two faulty Corsair (value range) fail on me within the month. Extreme clanking sound from the fans.
The third one (higher wattage one) wouldn't power my SSD correctly? I had to resort to using a molex extension lead instead of the SATA PSU lead? Though this could have been the Trancend SSD.

I have Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200W. Cost me 76 pounds used from ebay lol

Paid £85 for my HX620W yonks ago. Several upgrades later and it is still going strong. Now powers an AMD 8350 CPU, 290X Graphics Card, 4 HDD's, and 1 SSD with no problems whatsoever. I wouldn't hesitate going for this if I needed to replace mine.

Corsair are fine, but be very wary of the CX series, they're no where near the quality of the higher up models. I've had two CX 600's die on me, luckily they didn't take anything with them, although one did pop rather dramatically and spread bits of fan blade everywhere.

Look for something built by Superflower or Seasonic, its worth spending £10-£20 more on one.

Corsair don't use Seasonic at all now. They use CWT and Flextronics.

I was just going to say, Seasonic PSU's are beasts!! Looking at the top...TOP end PSU's they came out on top on all the benchmarks. It was a 1200watt PSU I believe but yeah...can never go wrong with seasonic. I used to have a TAGAN 1300W PSU which was awesome but I think that company went bust.

Non modular. Highly recommend fully modular PSUs failing that semi modular.

My cx500m still going strong a year later

Corsair PSUs might have been good in the past but things have changed. Don't be persuaded by their warranty, you will get a shock when you try and claim on it. Cold

Not quite - the PSU is semi-modular. There are two fixed power cables - one leading to a 20+4 pin ATX plug and the other to a 4+4 pin ATX CPU plug

The PSU has six sockets for the modular cables (of which there a quite a few supplied) - 4 for peripherals and SATA devices and 2 for 6+2 PCI-E and 4+4 pin CPU.

VERY quiet when running.

First unit had a faulty on/off switch. Taken unit back to Maplin who have replaced it after it failed to come on this morning (purchased less than 2 weeks ago). Re-installed original PSU into PC which powered up immediately proving that it wasn't the power cord nor the motherboard. Not installed 2nd unit yet.

PSU is coming up at £69.99 at Currys/PC World which is the same price as Maplin, not the £59.99 that the title of this thread states.

My apologies - you are quite correct. The PSU I have bought and have experience with is the CX750M (the M signifying modular I guess).
