Corsair CX430 V2 430W Power Supply Review

Rating: 9.0.

Corsair certainly seem to have the Midas touch – earning a great reputation within whatever market they decide to target. Their reputation in the power supply sector is already one of the best and today we are looking at the follow up to the original CX430 – the new CX430 V2, created to offer a solid, reliable power supply at the lowest possible price point.

The CX430 V2 is marketed at the same price as the original version, and gives a system builder 80 Plus Certification and an extended three year warranty. The CX series might not have gotten a lot of high profile attention in recent months, with the AX and HX series grabbing all the headlines. The CX V2 is classified as the ‘Builder’ series and is offered in 430W, 500W and 600W models.

  • Naddy

    is is hard to argue with a gold award for this. wish they made one with the same internal structure for £10 more, which was modular………. especially for a media center
