Corsair CX430: A Decent Low-Cost Power Supply

All of the power supply cables are sleeved and they include the 20+4-pin motherboard, 8-pin EPS 12V, one 6+2-pin PCI Express, four Serial ATA, three four-pin molex, and one floppy connector.

Corsair rates the CX430 has having a >100,000 hour MTBF and three year limited warranty. Some Phoronix readers have said the CX430 power supplies now being produced are of lower quality than when they first appeared, but in all of my CX430 systems they continue running great and are at near full load close to 24 hours per day. So far, so good, but will report back if I run into any issues.

For being a $30~40 ATX power supply, so far I am satisfied with the Corsair CX430 purchases. Stay tuned if any problems arise as these test system are being constantly benchmarked and thus enduring a lot of stress.
