The sad thing is that despite being a letdown, the CX430 is still probably going to be my top pick amongst PSUs in its range for a lot of builds, due to the 120mm fan vs 80mm on a lot of its competitors, decent cable length and connectors (such as 6+8pin PCI-Express for versatility), and power distribution. However, I'm going to be choosing Rosewill's RG430-S12
a lot more from now on, I think. It's reasonably efficient (80Plus report here
), has a nice 120mm fan, a single 12v rail and whoops the CX430 in amperage on all rails. Here
's a side-by-side comparison at Newegg. It will probably frequently come down to prices at time of purchase.
Note: I have a CX430 here for testing and despite what Newegg says, it's definitely a Yate Loon sleeve bearing fan.
