    from completed build Client Build #1

    By far the best budget small wattage PSU your pocket change can buy.

    The CX430M is a good, cheap, semi-modular power supply with ample wattage for my computer, and it runs quietly. I have no complaints here.

    from completed build MiniNIX - Dirt cheap Linux box

    Nice PSU with unusually smal dimensions (140mm depth) that works well in cases with tight internal clearances. No major complaints. It looks good, installs easily and is more than adequate for a low/mid powered workstation.

    Only one issue. The SATA power connectors are all "L" type. This makes it virtually impossible to use them if the HDD is mounted flush against the side/bottom of a case where there isn't always a cutout for the cable/connector. I was able to make it work, but it really would be nice to have one of the power cables offer straight power connectors. As it stands, if flush-mounted HDDs are something you're considering, you'll probably an extender, or better yet just buy a PSU with cables that work in that situation.

    Great. All I can say. Wish it was modular, but what could i expect for a 20 dollar PSU. Got it on a deal at Newegg. Before I saw the deal, I was thinking of getting a logigsys PSU... if that corsair rebate wasn't there, my house would be on fire right now.

    Would had preffered the modular, but not to blow the budget anymore I had to stay with this one. The extra cables can be hidden away depending on the case you get.

    Works just fine, never had any issues with Corsair's power supplies and this one is no different.

    from completed build Shadowbox- the mITX SG13 build

    My 750ti doesn't need any external power connectors, so the CX430m is perfect for powering the motherboard and hard drive. Not the greatest quality PSU, but great for what I'm using.

    from completed build Newton (First Build)

    This is sufficient for me. I'm not going to be overclocking for real anytime soon, so I only needed the basics. I love the semi-modular as it helps keep my case clean. It was super cheap and does its job. This will probably be the first part that I upgrade.

    I docked a star because it doesn't seem to work well with the intel sleep states. When my computer is asleep its runs hotter than when its at idle, but awake. I'm not sure if this is actually due to the PSU, but that's my suspicion.

    Great PSU, disappointed by the amount of 6-pin cables included.

    from completed build I mean, it exists (updated)

    Eh, I didn't think much about the PSU, just bought it when it was $25. Hasn't died/burned my house down yet.
