A Look Inside the Corsair CX430 V2
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

We decided to disassemble this power supply to see what it looks like inside, how it is designed, and what components are used. Please read our Anatomy of Switching Power Supplies tutorial to understand how a power supply works and to compare this power supply to others.

On this page we will have an overall look, and then in the following pages we will discuss in detail the quality and ratings of the components used. As mentioned, internally this unit is identical to the original Corsair CX430, with the exception of the active PFC transistors and +12 V rectifiers, which were upgraded.
