Corsair "Builder's Series" CX430: 80 Plus or no?

All the websites I see, including Corsair's own website, says the CX430 is 80 Plus. Jonnny Guru found it wasn't, and got a note from the company saying it isn't. However, the 80 Plus certification is still listed on the website even a year and a half later.

So, what is it?

    That corsair page is for the CX 430 V2 which is actually 80+ basic certified.

    The V1 was not but if you read the update at the end of the jonnyguru article it says that they fixed the info on their page for the V1, but the V2 is actually 80+.http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/psu_reports/CORSAIR_CMPSU-430CXV2_ECOS%202414_430W_Report.pdf
  2. Thanks for the quick response. Sorry for not noticing the details. Didn't see anything about version 1 vs. version 2. Now I see it. Thanks again.
