Well I apologize if I came off as you were wrong as that does seem like another good option for the OP.

my fault i should have explained instead of just calling it garbage i just don't trust the OEM as much as i do the OEM for the antec unit smile.gif

i guess it doesn't really matter which unit the op gets as long as it works and he is happy with it

We have to make sure we maintain some balance. If there really is a turkey comming from Corsair by all means speak up. If it is just that there is something else that will also work, try to stay objective.

I am not a fan of the Corsair CX as i think its overrated and used in systems where it does really belong

On the other hand it is not junk crap or garbage like some have claimed in this thread

What it is is simple and basic and made with cheap parts

Now for a really simple machine that wont be streeded the CX is good enough

Funny that the CX has two sides

One hate it with a passion and the other love and think its the best PSU ever

I dont belong to either side i look at how good it is and what it will used for end of story

The Seasonic G 360 watts is the only other PSU that comes close to the bang for buck the CX give

Its better yes but also more money

If you all want to bash something thats crappy go bash the OCZ CoreXStream that one deserve it

You can find it on sale all the time. I know some people don't like it but I've used it for office builds and have not had an issue in the 3 years that I've used them.

I don't think the rebate would apply. It's more than $55 on Amazon UK. Not a good price for that PSU, in my opinion.

That's what I also thought.

Since everyone is suggesting the Corsair CX, I must say that this is a temporary solution. I plan to buy an XFX Core Edition 450W for this build later, which is considerably better than any Corsair at this level.
The generic PSU would be used for around 2 months, like stated in the OP.

Sorry for not making that clear in my first post.

I agree.

The Corsair CX is an entry level unit. It's a lot better than some of the alternative OEM's with terrible component design and build quality.
However, I would not trust those capacitors with a high end system or a crunching machine.

But sometimes we're pleasantly surprised. Recently bought a Fractal Design Newton R3 1000W for a new gaming build and it's a fantastic unit.
And I would pay half of its value just for its appearance. biggrin.gif

The Newton R3 is one of the most underrated PSU´s out there

Think the high price is what turns so many people off

The HighPower Astro units is even worse off everyone here on OCN i know one user that bought one

ONE!
