Corsair Builder Series CX500 80PLUS Bronze Certified

CX Series power supply units are an excellent choice for basic system builds and desktop PC computer upgrades. CX Series PSUs are available in a variety of power configurations, and include features that are normally found only on premium power supplies.

Reliable and Compatible

The CX Series is built and tested to strict standards for trouble-free installation and smooth operation.

Low Noise

80PLUS Bronze certified efficiency and clever fan design allow for little or no detectable fan noise during regular operation.

Good Looks

The matte black finish, black-sleeved cables and black connectors help give your system a restrained, high-tech look.


Corsair Engineering and Quality Control

Every Corsair power supply is designed by our California engineering team and built to our exact specifications. The same care that goes into the design and testing of our renowned high-power enthusiast power supplies also goes into the CX Series, because you need confidence and reliability regardless of your build budget.

Ample Connectors and Long Cables

Long cables make CX Series suitable for installation even in full-height tower cases, and the generous cable count allows you to power multiple components and storage devices.

Large-Diameter, Thermally Controlled Fan

Once you’ve installed a PSU, you shouldn’t have to think about it. Employing a thermally controlled fan makes the CX Series quiet at idle, and the large diameter reduces noise even when you’re pushing your system hard.

Black Goes with Everything

You’re building a PC, not a battleship, and appearance counts. The matte black finish and all-black sleeved cables and connectors help give your system a high-tech, restrained look.

Question  Question by calum

Hi I plan buying this along with these products:
Sapphire Radeon R9 380 Compact ITX OC AMD Graphics Card 2GB
AMD FX-6350 Unlocked Six Core Processor 3.90GHz (4.20GHz Turbo)
Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P AMD Socket AM3+ Motherboard

Would this be able to run all of this and be compatible or would I require a different product.

Question  Power Supplies by Dave

Back on 10/08/2010 I bought a OCZ StealthXStream 400W Silent ATX2.2 Power Supply, which has given excellent servie until last night, it it went bang, just out of it's 3 yr warranty.
Would this unit be a suitable replacement as I see the old OCZ model is no longer available.

Answer by Keithw on Wednesday, October 23, 2013
These PSU's are not as quite as the one you had, i would recommend the be quite 500w (57190)
