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

Wasn't one of the older CX430's quite good?
Had one running a phenom II x4 for a while.
I would only buy an hx or an ax from corsair, or their newer rm series that looks quite interesting.

If I wanted a ~400W PSU, I'd get an xfx core 450.

This will sound like Corsair bashing despite its not

But you can find better PSU´s then Corsair even some for less money then a Corsair

That does not make Corsair bad just overpriced

Not to disagree, but what do you think of the JonnyGuru link I posted?

It won't hyperlink correctly. You have to copy/paste it into your address bar to get it to work.

Primary capacitor is a single Chinese made Samxon cap

All of the capacitors on the secondary are also Samxon. Corsair could've done worse... but the number of capacitor choices that are better are quite numerous.

+
Decent voltage regulation
Good ripple suppression

-
Use of Chinese Samxon capacitors throughout.
Group regulated design

Even worse then the CX430M
