Corsair’s CX Series of power supplies have become increasingly popular in the DIY PC market. They offer strong value for money, good build quality, Corsair’s trademark warranty service and offer up 80 Plus Bronze certification at a reasonable price point. Today we are looking at the CX500M power supply which is a modular 80 Plus Bronze 500W power supply from Corsair.
Corsair’s CX500M power supply isn’t as extravagant as some of the power supplies we’ve looked at in the past but that is fine as this power supply is really only aimed at the single GPU gamer with a relatively mid-range system and on a restricted budget. If consumers want something more “high-end” they can obviously opt for Corsair’s more premium HX and AX series of power supplies.
If you’ve been following the pre-built system market you may see that Corsair’s CX500M has gained significant traction in that market inside pre-built systems from vendors like PC Specialist, Overclockers UK, Scan 3XS and so on. That said the CX500M has never been more popular and without any further ado let’s dive in and take a look at this budget offering from Corsair.
