Why so much hate towards Corsair CX430??

I have a green label Corsair CX430 that has been powering my PC with a overclocked ryzen 7 and a RX 580 8g for over 3 years now, and has been on for almost 24/7. Never had any issues with this powersupply and I would defo buy Corsair again.

 

Why the hate towards them? they are only a budget offering afterall...

I use to have a yellow VS450 which everyone hated, got a CX450 now.

The green one is kinda old, you should get the grey one which is generally more acceptable.

It's not hate, only fanboys unironically "hate" a brand or X product.

Those PSUs "just work" if you have a low end or midrange build but you can't pair them with high end parts and expect everything to work fine and dandy.

 Finitude is what the two clock hands indicate as they point towards my cruel destiny.

Hate? I do not hate i base my opinions mostly on facts. the fact is that the cx 430 is pretty old and not that good overall. there are better offerings on that price point. 

 

the cx 430 is group regulated and douple forward making it pretty bad overall psu.

QUOTE ME  FOR ANSWER.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

I wouldn't use it personally, but no hate for it. 

The power supplies I hate, usually found in old ass OEM builds where I can't read the writing on the sticker and seem to be rated at 230w or less. Those PSUs, I hate those ones.

You sure about that?  That PSU was discontinued about 7 years ago.

All CX430's have "green label".
