What can I run from this power supply?
If you’re looking for a basic power supply (PSU) for your mid to high-end computer system, this CX550M would be an ideal choice for you. The power supply is very efficient and runs quietly due to its large fan, providing you with low energy wastage and a quiet experience.
You shouldn’t require a replacement power supply after upgrading you system further as this CX550M can provide enough power for a variety of components.

How quiet and efficient is this power supply?
This Corsair power supply comes with an 80 PLUS bronze efficiency rating, which means that the power supply must be at least 80% energy efficient at various loads. The CX550M is approximately 84% efficient, which means that it wastes roughly 16% of electrical energy as heat. The large diameter, thermally controlled fan makes this power supply quieter at lower loads, while the large diameter reduces noise when you're pushing your system hard. Under a full load this power supply produces 35dBA of noise, giving you a whisper quiet computing experience.

How does the semi-modular design benefit me?
The semi-modular design of this power supply comes supplied with only the necessary cables attached. In this case the motherboard and CPU power cords have already been connected to the power supply for you. With the remaining cables you only need to plug in the ones that you need, improving the airflow and aesthetic look of your build as there are fewer extra cables hanging around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed instantly available Bought this in an emergency after changing my graphics car. Picked it for collection at my local Maplin store and staff were very knowledgeable and helpful when talking about the connectors I would need. Works a treat and have had no issues with it. Very pleased all round

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Corsair Power Supply Excellent! My son has a gaming PC and it runs very quiet, I am a bit jealous. There enough leads to power the disks, motherboard, graphics card(8 pin) and fans. The leads are modular and makes it easy to tidied them away safely. Ver y impressed, well thought out

I have a tower PC with an ASUS P7P55D-E motherboard. I have bought a GIGABYTE 6GD GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming graphics card, which fits. However the power supply does not have the power connection for the card, it needs 2 x 4 block connections , 500w

Asked by: James
This has 2x 6-pin PCI-E connections which can be used as 2x 4-pin connections so this will work fine
