5.0 out of 5 stars Decent quality power supply, 29 May 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Corsair CP-9020015-UK Builder Series CX750 ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Unit, 750 W (Accessory)
Cables are minimum 600mm long with the floppy cable reaching 760mm. So plenty of length here for a tower system.
Main connector 24 pin ATX
1x 8pin cpu power connector (8pin/4pin - it splits for compatability)
4x PCI-express cables (8pin/6pin - 2 split off if needed) (I needed 2 for my card so this allows for an sli expansion later on)
8x Sata connectors
6x peripheral 4pin molex style connectors for drives/fans etc.
2x floppy connectors (going unused by me but still useful to have)

Power
+3.3v @ 25A
+5v @ 25A for 130W across 3.3v and 5v combined.
+12v @ 62A for 744W max (Very nice for even the most demanding graphics cards)
-12v @ 0.8A for 9.6W
+5Vsb @ 3A for 15W

Accessories
1 mains power cable (3 pin uk) with molded plug + fuse
A bag of black cable ties for tidying up your new cable jungle.
4 screws for mounting the psu.

It went in without a bother and is quieter than my case fans.
I give this 5 stars because this is a bargain (currently 30% off rrp) for what you get from a quality maker of hardware plus this is 80+ Bronze efficiency rated and comes with a 3 year guarantee .
This has more cables and power than I currently need so plenty of room for later expansion.
I was considering the 600w cable management version but for the difference of a few pence it was silly not to get this one.

For something that is attached to all your hardware and a critical piece of kit, you do not want to skimp on quality with a psu, it is worth it for having peace of mind rather than the false economy of buying some cheap high wattage psu that could fail in less than 2 months.

Building my own pc, I know nothing about it. Does this come with the UK mains plug or do I have to buy one? If not how many amp plug do I get? This info would be most helpful. Thanks

I am also building my own pc and i am having 2 Hard drives,you say that there are 8 Sata connectors, does that mean 8 Sata power cables? Also do i need to buy Sata data cables or will they come with the hard drive?

In reply to an earlier post on 9 Sep 2013 23:02:13 BDT
Mr. A. Atkin says:
You will need to buy them. Sata data cables only come included with motherboards.

Which way would this be installed? I.e. is it an intake or exhaust fan? Thanks!

PSUs tend to be exhaust fans.

I have researched this and can only find information stating it has 46 Amps on the +12v rail which is 552W! Not the 62 Amps you stated... Unless you are aware that they have changed the power output on this model maybe? Otherwise then you are giving disinformation.

I can vouch for this review.
Having had it for almost a year this is a perfect PSU for modern pc gamers.

It was small to my surprise at first but then I realised after opening it up in 10 months to give it a clean, which it was almost spotless anyways I realise see'ing the technology and work gone into these Powersupplys.

Conner True says:
Colin, Having run serious tests with this when I had purchased it awhile ago, although information and you are correct does state 46 Amps on the +12V rail, please bare in mind that they only produce information based off the safe load testing rigs.

What does it mean?
It means they don't put the PSU to it's full potential and give you a little less information, this PSU can actually go up to 62Amps but that is the maximum and it would not be recommended to pull this off. If you are looking for this kind of power I would rather you go for the CX750 or a higher efficiency 600W than the 80+ Bronze, if you were to look at a 600W 80+ Gold you are looking at an amp load of 70 at most.

I hope this information helps.
