    I have the x-650w (what these PSU are based off of, Seasonic's design) and they would be worth every penny... :)

    You have to realize:


    100% modular

    Gold Rated efficiency

    One of the best PSU's available, yeah they are gonna be expensive.


    The x-650 is 139, and right now I'd still recommend a x (650 or 750) over one of these, due to the price difference and the are the same thing, internally.

    I do realize that. They're still expensive as all hell. At those prices, I'd much rather stick to my HX750W.

    The AX1200 is actually built by Flextronics and the rest are Seasonic based.

    The AX1200 Watt Is the best power-supply on the market- Read the reviews- Amazing quality.

    *The Corsair AX1200 Watt has a 140mm Yateloon Temperature controlled fan.
    *87-90% Efficiency at full load of 1200 watts.
    *Regulators on every single line
    *More features and thoughtfull idea's then any other power supply has to keep clean power and stable power then any other power supply has.
    *Runs hella cool
    *Has Really clean lines- the 12v stayed at 12.10-12.20 On full load and only had 30mv line noise. The other Rails on full load had 25-20mv of line noise- ON FULL LOAD.
    *Fully Modular
    *Can probably be pushed overload at 1400 watts just fine. Litteraly.

    Amazing power supply from what I heard.

    Very nice, if i had the cash i would go for the AX1200.:)

    But really their current PSU's are dominating, i love my 850TX. The 90% efficiency sounds great though.

    And imo, the AX850 and up are looking pretty expensive.

    Prices will go down when other online retailers get their shipment in. Right now I believe only Newegg has them so they are charging up the ass for them..

    Nice, won't be needing one for awhile but if I need another gaming system these actually tempts me somewhat to go Corsair.

    Depends what BeQuiet have out at the time.

    On a side note, the CX430 looks like a really bad deal compared to the CX400...
    The same money gets you 2 less amps on the 12V rail, not 80+ Certified and only 2 years of warranty.:confused:

    Digging up a somewhat old topic here, but I was looking for discussion on this. What gives, Corsair? Why did you discontinue the excellent Seasonic-made 400CX and replace it with this CWT-made CX430 with fewer 12v amps, a Yate Loon sleeve bearing fan (vs the dual ball bearing fan in the 400CX), a shorter warranty, and no 80 Plus certification? I'm not trying to be a jerk; I really want to know if there's a good reason we builders should be pleased to see this replacement.

    I saw that. It seems as though they're might gravitate towards good high-end (read: expensive) PSUs, and start cheaping out (read: crap) on their lower end.

    The 430W has a double ball bearing fan, it says so in the Newegg specs.

    From the reviews that I read, the Newegg specs are wrong. Happens often enough on there for me to believe the reviewer.
