  1. That's a *** PSU. I would rather look at the Corsair CX430 or, if you need more power for overclocking and other add-ons, the Corsair CX500.

    oh c***!!!i cannot exchange or do anything....im stuck
    checked out cx430....80+ eh??... mathematically 80% of 430W=344W....whereas CooMast is 70% so approx 350 W....

    being 80+ such a big thing???
