Corsair CX600M (Modular) will it be enough the "safely" run my rig.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Greetings!

I have a Corsair 650 currently, and it runs my computer great. However the amount of cables is a pain for management purposes, so I picked up a Corsair CX600M from a local store super cheap, because it is in fact modular. Will it supply enough power, even at load to keep my rig running smoothly?

Thanks for any help, my current computer is in the signature. (I disconnect the DVD-ROM) after installing the OS, so that what be drawing power.

Your rig isn't in your sig.

Yes, no problem.

Your system is a 350w max system, so yes, you're ok with the CX600M.

Real world wattage, the CX600m is a 550w unit.

No problem, and to answer your question, the CX600 will be more than enough to power that rig, even at full load thumb.gif

The Corsair CX600 is not really a great PSU

You would be better off keeping your old PSU as that one is much better made

The Corsair CX is cheap for a reason its an entry level PSU and stand as a last resort before you hit the crappy units

You have not upgraded you have downgraded your PSU
