    Default Corsair new CX line - especially CX450

    So, I've been wondering if the new platform (?) is worth it (better than the "v3" CX430) reliability-wise. I'm planning on replacing a Zippy EMACS with one of those - although the Zippy quality is top notch, it is based on a pretty old platform that don't even adhere to 80PLUS.

    Have done some research and everything points to the Modular models. No reviews, tests, nothing.

    Yes it's better. Better than the modular ones actually. Better fan.

    Much better. Older CX are crap, despite the 750/850W model.

    The new CX-M's are better than all of the old CX and CX-M's, but then the CX line got "refreshed" last year without also refreshing the CX-M product line.

    So as turkey pointed out: In many cases a CX can be better than a CX-M.
