It's plenty good enough for a cheap basic build. Obviously you are not gonna put it in a rig full of high end gear because well, a 400 watt psu isn't gonna run a rig full of high end gear regardless. One would assume that a top notch company like Corsair would require whoever the actual manufacturer of the psu is that certain quality standards be met.

What do you mean by "high end"? Does an i5 2500K overclocked to 5.0GHz and an HD 7850 overclocked to 1240MHz core clock considered high-end? For many people, it would be.

My plan is to put this into my sig rig, pull the slightly more powerful mushkin out and use that in a new build. I plan to only use one GPU, an SSD, a HDD, and the rest, so the 550W should be fine, at least according to this power calc I used that someone on OCC posted.

Agree with paul, the CX range is akin to poo.

 

I don't agree it's akin to poo.

 

The CX range is Corsairs budget offering for system builders. I personally wouldn't use them in a heavy gaming/benchmarking PC but for an office/internet/light gaming PC or if funds are tight then I don't see a problem.

Yes that would be high end. Anything in my sig would also be high end even though most of it may be older lol. I guess what I am trying to say is if you are gonna run a pc with anything near what you just mentioned and would even attempt to run a cx 400 then you would be an idiot lol. :D When I say these are good for a basic build, think web browsing and farmville style gaming lol.

I don't estimate my power needs at all. I just by the largest high quality power supply available at a decent price when I need one. :D

If you have nothing to offer in this thread, please stop posting. I use this PSU in my 24/7 NAS and it works just fine.

I've been recommending the CX series left and right. Doesn't compare to the TX or higher end series, but they're very stable voltage-wise. Much better than other similarly-priced power supplies for sure.
