There has been a lot of nay saying on these and I would like to compile some information on this line. The most detailed info I found on whats really "wrong
" with the label I found here:
PSA: The Corsair CX series - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net
I have yet to see a review really claiming them to be garbage with a full load test and "explosions." Not literal I mean I have seen no failed tests.
SO FAR I've had 0 problems with my own 500 and it seems that despite (mis)label trickery they are solid. This is once you see past the fact that the wattage is misleading. I did though without a doubt buy mine after no research and I bought it for the name. I will be completely willing to submit to face palms if I'm giving solid reason that these are sh*t.
My overall stance on this PSU is I will not recommend it due to the misleading information Corsair has provided. Though I do believe had these been labled properly they would have been fine
Any links for or against?
Questions, comments, concerns?
I'll update as I find reviews.
