Corsair is today a known manufacturer of performance power supplies and rightfully so, if we can judge from our reviews on their high end products. What of their basic series though? The CX430M hits our testing laboratory today, trying to prove that even sub-$25 products have what it takes to satisfy a demanding user.
Quality wise, the Corsair CX430M is much better than most people would expect from a power supply which now ships for $24.99 after rebate and a $10 off coupon. We cannot claim that it has been built like a tank; we have certainly seen better but certainly not in a $25 product. Still, Corsair cooperated with a highly respected OEM, CWT, the circuit design is that of a “by the book” APFC unit without the companies cutting corners on filtering and or safety and, finally, the choice of components was excellent for a product of such a class.
