It wasn't a power surge.

But yes. Plug your PSU into a surge protector. smile.gif

Yes, I get that. My message is the same as yours, plug your PSU into a surge protector no matter the quality of your PSU. I live in FL, on the coast and I constantly experience power outages. I have an EVGA SuperNOVA G2 850, a very high end PSU. Even though the hold up time is better than most, it still doesn't prevent me from losing power, it happens. It is plugged into a surge protect and even when I lose power, I never have any problems with my computer running slower or anything.

As i have said time and time again the CX is not crap trash or bad its alright if you are broke and / or cant find anything better or if its for an office / media PC or some other type of lower end PC.
Am a bit sick of those that claim that all i do is bash the CX, all i have pretty much said is dont use it in high end gaming rigs get something better if you are building a $1000 gaming rig.

The name of this thread is "Why you should not buy a CX PSU."

I have used it in my high end gaming rig, and so have many others. It is not as bad of a PSU as you make it out to be. It is serviceable. It gets the job done.

NO one here can argue that regardless of the psu you are not going to spend 1000 dollars or more and skimp out on the psu and get a cheap psu. That logic is completely backwards, even if you don't overclock. You need constant stable reliable power especially if you have a high end motherboard with new chokes and a decent vrm. Your psu feeds all of your expensive system hardware. If you skimp out on psu will it deliver power to your board sure, but at a price. If you ever decide to overclock and do any extensive loads you are going to quickly find out your system delivery of power is not up to par with a good psu and all Japanese capacitors. Corsair even says on the site low to medium gaming or office work. I would be hard pressed to see a great overclock if any at all from this PSU. The whole idea behind building a high end rig is to ensure you have all the best possible hardware while trying to keep cost down. The PSU is not an area to skimp on. Then you have enthusiasts who need the latest and greatest. If you are doing basic gaming and nothing serious then this psu would work great for you. This power supply is not the worst out there but its not good either. They don't even use all jap capacitors, you can verify this on the site, like he pointed out they are bad ones.

I had a $1000 budget when I first built my PC. In order to fit a GTX 780 in, that means I had to go with a lower end PSU and case. I made it fit, I used the CX600M for 6 months without problem, achieved the same overclocks on both CPU and GPU with the CX as with the EVGA G2 SuperNOVA 850.

This PSU is FINE!
