Cooler Master is a brand you won't hear anyone recommending around here.

Get one made by Seasonic or Enermax.

I stand corrected. There is one person on Tom's Hardware who will recommend the brand.

Cooler Master is a hit or miss brand that is mostly miss.

Hope it works out for you.

I don't know why you all say that Cooler Masters are so bad. Used quite a few myself and had no problems. Used one of their GX 650 watt units in a gaming build with a Phenom II 6 core and GTX 570 and it's been solid.

Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 460w

It failed to deliver 100% of stated power.

It got 436w successfully while drawing a ridiculous 570w from the wall in the process. That means the PSU would be running its fans just to get rid of the > 130w that disappears into thin air in the form of heat in the PSU.

It is particularly stated in the review that when the PSU gets hot (which it will with 130w from the wall being turned directly into heat and wasted) then the fans get super loud as they max themselves out.

The ripple charts are within specs, but not great. At least they didn't manage to fall outside of specs on this portion.

The only reason to buy PSUs from this maker is if you are willing to roll the dice with the safety of your motherboard and video card in order to save a couple bucks.

If you aren't willing to roll the dice, then go with a brand that is not hit or miss, but instead always hit. Something like Seasonic.

We don't need to try it, people with specialized equipment that know what they are doing already did it for us.

Those people have repeatedly showed that CM parts can't deliver their stated power, can't do it within specs, and so on.

Luckily, the CM brand has a lot of customers that don't know what is going on and don't test their PSUs in order to give them good reviews.

I would use the Corsair 1050 over the CM 850.
