Corsair psu reviews are pretty bad and have been said to damage other computer part or even catch fire.
Personally I would recommend spending a little bit more money on a more reliable brand and with more than 430W.
Good luck to anyone buying this.

Bronze, silver, gold, etc are just an efficiency standard. Basically, the operating electrical efficiency of the unit.

Silver will operate more efficiently than Bronze, gold better than silver, etc.

For example (I'll use CRUDE numbers) if it costs $1/month electric cost per usage on a bronze rated unit, it might cost $0.95 in electric for the same usage on a silver unit. Again this is just a crude representation of how it works.

With higher efficiency units you'll usually see them at a higher price tag. So there are some calculators online to help you determine if they're "worth it" to you.

In my personal opinion I wouldn't worry about it. I would get a Bronze+ rated unit at an attractive value price point and be done with it. The only time I considered the rating more was when building a server that was going to be up 24/7 with several HDDs running in a RAID with a high operating time and load. But a personal PC? Nah.

I bought the CX430 for my PE4C and GTX 1060 6GB. Works well. Extremely quiet and zero power issues.

This is a very highly rated PSU. Just go find the JonnyGuru review.

I've used this model PSU more than a dozen times in builds and replacing failed OEM units, probably more than 20 now that I think about it. I have had 1 DOA...

So out of the 20 or so I have purchased and used, I had one fail out of the box, which was promptly replaced in just over a week... I have one positive review on newegg... I should put 18 more positive reviews and then a mediocre review for the one DOA that was quickly replaced with a working unit...

This can happen with every manufacturer... The frying of additional hardware is something you usually see in lower end units (lower than this one), but all it takes is a short, and that can develop over time from a missed bad solder job or a loose screw under the PCB... I had a server PSU that shorted and took out everything but the Hard drives... Even the CPU got fried... That PSU was just over a year old and retailed for over $100...

Duds happen... Welcome to the wonderful world of DIY...

Is that working well for you? I thought it was smarter to invest in a $200 desktop the CX430 has been running it for a year now with no issues.

I've never heard of a single person ever having a bad experience with a corsair psu.
