My cousin used CX430M with his low end gaming rig. It was otherwise stable but he had odd amount of hardware failures, especially hard drives. I heard that ripple can slowly degrade and even break components so I took the CX430M out and replaced it with Super Flower Golden Green 450w (excellent value). Ever since the computer has been trouble free. Coincidence? I think not. I wish I had replaced it earlier.

The XFX Core Edition or the Seasonic S12Ii its based on is not that much more money then a CX430 and its much better

Better still is the Rosewill Capstone/Super Flower Golden Green the Seasonic G and the new Cooler Master V450S

Those are more then a CX yes but if you want a PSU for a gaming / overclocking PC these are much better made and can withstand much more

So good luck to you if you want to try

That's why I'd be killing the overclock as opposed to raising it. That would be stupid. In what way is it worse? Are the CX x00M third revision models that are better than the crap thing I have and if yes in what way(s)?

Aren't tall sigs allowed if they're hidden in spoiler tags?

I misunderstood you and i made an edit where i corrected my mistake

So yes the CX i talked about it newer and better then the version you have

Think the V2 you have is 100% CapXon´s (not sure on that)

Some of the older CX where 100% CapXon´s (i think?) and those i would not even have in the same room as my PC

Some models are like that yes

But in this case they just bought the CWT DSAII platform and slapped it into their own box and sell it as a Corsair unit

Can you use a spoiler in your sig?

Copy the link into the browser for it to work. Hyperlink is broken for no adequately explainable reason.
